Travel tips for visiting Cuba
Cuba has long been an attractive destination for tourists, but now, due to the thaw, many people are eager to visit the Caribbean nation of Cuba before it becomes too commercialized. Although American tourism to the island is still technically forbidden under the embargo, many Americans can now legally travel to Cuba for the first time in more than 5 decades using one of 12 travel exceptions regulated by the US State Department. After years of isolation, Cuba has no infrastructure to handle the increasing flood of tourists. More flights are expected from US, Europe and China, and also more cruise ships will be sailing into Havana’s only commercial port. It is very hard to find places in good hotels except through groups. However there are thousands of comfortable rooms available in private homes (casas particulares) at significantly lower cost. They can be found through Trip Advisor, Airbnb and similar online services. Internet access is only available in a few dozen WI-FI hotspots, this lack of Wi-Fi and mobile data means your tablet or smart phone won't be needed. This and many other tips you can find in this video if you are planning to travel to the Caribbean island.
