3 Tips for Traveling to Cuba
How to get there and back without getting fined.
Have a Contact or Hire a Tour Guide
The move to open the borders with Cuba happened suddenly, so it’s understandable if the country’s infrastructure isn’t yet suited for hundreds of thousands of new travelers. To be sure, Cuba has several incredible resort hotels and tourist attractions to cater to international travelers, but getting around the country can still be very tricky.
Even hailing a taxi can involve a series of negotiations and miscommunications, so do yourself a favor and have a contact or private tour guide who can show you around or make arrangements for you ahead of time. Even if you have to pay extra upfront, you will most likely avoid a lot of anxiety and price gouging. Plus, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you can call someone if your trip starts to go south.
