Top 5 Tips for Cuba

Today, I am going to provide you with the TOP 5 Tips for travelling to Cuba.

Personally, I have travelled to Cuba 5 times. Yes, these vacations where located on the beach at all-inclusive resorts. For my next trip to Cuba I will be visiting rural areas. A step away from the fun in the sun aspect of Cuba. I hope I will be able to open your eyes to a side of Cuba many of us have not seen. Therefore, through my experience here are my top 5 tips I want to share with you all. These tips apply for any travel outside of Canada.

  1. Let your family know where you are travelling to. Provide them with the contact information, such as, address, phone number, area.
  2. Take a photocopy of your passport and leave it with your emergency contact while traveling. It is not uncommon for travelers to lose or misplace their passport. Having a copy will help you facilitate the issuance of a new one with a Canadian Consulate abroad.
  3. Stay hydrated. Bring a insulated reusable and refillable bottle. Yes, in Cuba you will be drinking bottled water but having an insulated bottle will help to keep it cool longer, while in the sun.
  4. Medications and over the counter medications. Whenever you are travelling ensure you bring any needed prescribed medication in its original bottle. I suggest travellers bring Tylenol, Advil and/or Immodium.
  5. Have a open mind. Be mindful. Different culture therefore people will act and behave differently. Embrace these differences and share how Canada differs to their ways. Have fun!
