What should I bring?
We recommend bringing the following items:
- Bug spray
- Over-the-counter drugs
- Band aids
- Small gifts for kids and locals
- Art supplies
- Hand sanitizer
- Wash cloths (not provided at most hotels)
- Toilet paper (good to have your own at public restrooms)
Cuba generally ranges from warm to hot weather. We recommend lightweight clothing. It is advisable that visitors bring cotton and similar type fabric clothing.
We also suggest bringing lightweight and comfortable walking shoes. Many Cuban streets are made of cobblestone.
During the winter and rainy months, sweaters and jackets are suggested.
More formal clothing is required for theaters, concert halls, nightclubs, and formal venues.
The style in Cuba for both men and women is to dress in colorful clothing, often displaying a confident and bold appearance.
Can I bring donations?
It is recommended to use the word gifts instead of donations as donations require other customs procedures when entering Cuba.
Donations in small amounts are acceptable while visiting Cuba.
Bring limited quantities of small items because too many of one item may cause delays upon entry.
If you plan to bring donations, please inform your tour guide and they can direct you to the correct place to make the donation.
