Wondering how to prepare for your trip to Cuba? Find some helpful tips below. Once you book your District Cuba Tour Package, we’ll send you more information related to your specific itinerary. We can’t wait to see you soon!
You may not find many of the necessities you are used to at home, even in the capital of Havana, so it is a good idea to bring certain items with you. These include:
What to bring back – Rum, cigars, and coffee are probably the most popular souvenirs! You may also enjoy artwork, fragrance, clothing, and CDs of Cuban music. There are no longer any special restrictions on bringing Cuban goods into the U.S., though you will be subject to the usual customs rules for certain goods like tobacco and alcohol. Find the latest information at the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol site.
Money – While District Cuba’s tour packages are inclusive of most of your expenses, you will need some cash for miscellaneous daily expenses. U.S. credit and debit cards do not work in Cuba, so it is necessary to bring cash. Check the information provided with your itinerary for suggested amounts of cash. Your tour guide will assist you in exchanging for Cuban currency.
Clothing – The type of clothing you bring will depend on your tour itinerary and the time of year of your visit, so be sure to check the specific information provided after booking your tour package. For all trips, you will want to bring a pair of walking shoes, a light rain jacket, sunglasses and an umbrella.
Phone & Internet – Some American cell phones will work in Cuba – Sprint and Verizon currently offer roaming service. Check with your carrier for available service and roaming rates for calls, text and data. You can also purchase from Cubacel either a SIM card to use in your unlocked, GSM-capable cell phone, or rent a phone for the duration of your stay– if you wish to go this route, let us know and we can arrange this for you upon arrival. Alternatively you can make calls using a pre-paid calling card at the public payphone.
You will be able to access the internet, either through internet café or hotel business center, or at public WiFi hotspots. Internet tends to be much slower than in the U.S., and more expensive to access, so you’ll be able to check emails but don’t plan on downloading large files or streaming movies.
Electronics & Electricity – Power supply in Cuba is either 110 volt or 240 volt electrical current, so it is important to check the voltage of your electronics before plugging them in to ensure compatibility. Many cell phones, laptops and cameras will work with both currents, but be aware that electronics that are 110 volt only will require a voltage converter before being plugged in or you will risk ruining the device. It is a good idea to bring a universal adaptor in case you encounter a non-compatible plug.
Getting Around – Transportation will be arranged by District Cuba – check the information provided with your booking for specifics on the planned transport.
