To think about
Remember to avoid the cyclone season (October - November). Bring along light clothing and lots of sunscreen.
Avoid making negative or critical comments about the Castros, or ask their opinion on the political regime; this may make Cubans feel uncomfortable.
Cuban cuisine is quite simple and not diverse. Chicken and rice are its main staples. It is common for potatoes, fried bananas and yams to be served with the main meal. Make it your mission to taste the local lobster!
To bring back
Of course, Cuban rum is excellent, as are the cigars. The local shirts, known as guayabera and straw hats guajiro are also a good buy. As for the music, you will find many recordings by local artists.
