Here is a summary of the information you should know before flying off to the country.
The biggest of the Caribbean islands has a bit the form of a great crocodile. But rather is a pearl: its hundreds miles of beach have the colour of nacre. If it was called the "socialist paradise", seen from inside, socialism is nothing sorcerer: lack everything! But Cuba opens to the world and the world opens to the island. You will come for the softness of subtropical climate, natural wealth, beaches, coral reefs ... But Cuba is also five centuries of history with numerous architectural treasures and a culture filled with joy and laughter the minor event is celebrated dancing.
National currency is Cuban peso, divided into cents, but in the big cities, most consumables are purchased in convertible peso. Attention, American dollars are not accepted in the island.
A current valid passport is required, valid 6 months after the date of return.
You must also submit a tourist visa obtained at the consulate in Cuba or in travel agencies and valid for 30 days. To get this visa, we have to submit a passport and a proof of the airline (or travel agent) that shows the dates going and back of its air travel. This affidative must also certify that your first two nights in a hotel in Cuba have already been reserved
No vaccine mandatory to go to Cuba, unless you come from a country where acting with rigor yellow fever and cholera.
In this case, the international certificate of vaccination will be required.
The health system seems to be one of the great achievements of Cuban socialism. Awesome the number of hospitals in this country! And the doctors are really competent.
However, Cuba is regularly victim of epidemics sometimes very curious.
t is advisable in any event, a minimum of vaccines:
Vaccines "universal" need to be updated: tetanus, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B. Protect yourself against typhoid and hepatitis A.
Yellow fever certainly has been eradicated in Cuba: there's no need of this vaccine (unless you must perform scales or travel in the south side of the Panama Canal).
There's no malaria in Cuba. But you need to protect from mosquitoes, which are quite numerous and aggressives and can transmit many other diseases (dengue for example). Thus, from the sunset, carry clothes that leave few areas uncovered skin, apply repulsive anti mosquitoes really effective (Repel Insect Adult, Child and Trempage for impregnating fabrics), sleeping under mosquito net impregnated with insecticide.
Attention in the sun.
- Avoid drinking tap water, irrespective of the place where you are (even in the luxury hotels).
- Officially, the water is potable. In fact, it has very bad taste. Don't run risks, even in Havana.
- Eat fruits and vegetables only if they can be peeled, if they have been properly washed, and, of course, if they are cooked
