Medications

Standard medication is not widely available in Cuba. Make sure to bring enough prescription medications for the full duration of your trip plus a few days.

Sun Screen

Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen as well as lotions for sunburns. Be sure to apply sun screen whenever you are outside; even with an overcast and clouds, you can get burned quickly.

Weather

Cuba is generally hot all year round.  It can be very hot and humid from June to October. From November and on the humidity drops a bit which will bring in a nicer climate.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is another way to prepare and keep some peace of mind. Make sure your insurance provider WILL honor your policy should you need medical treatment in Cuba. And please note that any medical treatment MUST be paid for before being allowed to leave Cuba.

Vaccinations

There are no compulsory vaccinations required for Cuba travel; however, the following vac’s are advisable and may be required for your travel insurance policy. Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio.

Traveling With A Baby

It is advised, when traveling with a baby, to proactively prepare for all situations. There are many baby medications, hygiene products and other items not widely available or that are very costly on the island.

Food

The tropical climate produces fruits and root vegetables that are used in Cuban dishes and meals. A typical meal would consist of rice and beans, cooked together or apart. When cooked together the recipe is called either “Congri” or “Moros” or “Moros y Cristianos” (black beans and rice).
