- ADDRESS IN CUBA
When filling out your tourist card you must include your address in Cuba. Make sure to include the address of a legitimate hotel or legal casa particular, even if you plan to travel around the country. This will help you to avoid any conflicts or confusion with Cuban immigration officers.
- HOW CAN I PLAN MY WEEKLY BUDGET IN CUBA?
Cuba is not the most expensive place in the Caribbean, nor is it the cheapest. However, in comparison with most other Caribbean destinations you can get by with much less if you're a savvy traveler and know how to spend your Cuban Convertible Pesos. Those staying in a mid-range casa particular will be covered for accommodation, food and transportation costs with $75 – 100 CUC per day. Low budget travelers could get by with even less, especially if buying food from local vendors on the street.
- IS CUBA SAFE FOR AMERICANS? Yes. Cuba is very safe. In fact, Cuba has the lowest crime rate in Latin America. The average traveler has little reason to worry about personal safety in the streets, hotels, or any other places he or she might visit. While petty crime does exist, it occurs only rarely and poses little problem for attentive travelers.

- CAN I EXCHANGE MONEY IN CUBA? Yes. In Cuba, airports, hotels, banks, and CADECA bureaus exchange currency (U.S. and Canadian dollars, Euros, British pounds, and other types). Hotels are often the most convenient places, and offer similar rates to banks and CADECA bureaus. Be sure to carry proper ID (typically, a passport).

- WHAT CAN I BRING BACK TO THE U.S. FROM CUBA? Currently, Americans are allowed unlimited quantities of informational or educational materials, such as books, lms, artwork, posters, photographs, and CDs. As of Decemb, Americans are also allowed to bring back as much as $400 worth of other goods, including up to $100 worth of cigars and rum.

- ABOUT AIRPORT PICK UP SERVICE
Our airport pick-up service is offered to prevent some unscrupulous taxi drivers from diverting guests to other untrustworthy lodgings.
If you do not accept our trusted pick-up service. Please take these precautions:
- Do not allow the driver to change the destination. DO NOT BE FOOLED! Although they are very friendly, they are only interested in their commission for bringing tourists to illegal lodging. They will disappear and leave you to deal with the authorities.
- When you arrive at your destination, and before the taxi leaves, speak with the personnel of the lodging and make sure they know your name. This is a way to check you are in the right place.
-The taxi driver may arrive at our destination, get off the taxi on arrival, and pretend speak with the staff and come back telling you that our casa is sold out. That is false information. Your reservation is safe with us.
-DO NOT give our phone number to the taxi driver. They will pretend to call and speak with the staff and actually speak with someone else and tell you our casa is full. That is also false.
-Speak with the taxi driver the least possible.
- Be alert to a long way, We are just 15 minutes, 20 KM and taxi fare is around 30-40 CUC
-Our honest and friendly staff will be waiting and expecting your arrival.

- What kinds of clothes should I wear in Cuba?
We suggest you should dress lightly, especially in summer. It is recommended to wear clothes made of cotton, linen or rayon; such as pullovers, shirts, T-shirts, shorts and comfortable shoes (sandals or running shoes). For winter, a light wool jacket or sweater and cotton pants can be enough for the occasional cold nights. Sunglasses, a hat and sun lotion are very necessary, as well as repellants against insects, especially if you travel to a beach area or a rural excursion.

-We strongly advise not missing some of this spots: VIÑALES, TRINIDAD, PLAYA LARGA AND VARADERO BEACH.

-Cuban Weather
Cuba is a tropical island. the average temperature is 21° C in January and 27° C in July.

Note:
The Cuban Convertible Peso (CUC) was introduced by the Cuban financial authorities to take out all foreign currencies from circulation, and offer an alternative that is in almost all senses equal to US dollars. It replaces the dollar as currency where previously dollars were quoted in places such as hotels, restaurants and so called 'dollar shops', and is the new 'tourist' currency.
US Dollars were widely accepted throughout the island, but since 8 November 2004 US Dollars are no longer accepted, and a 10% commission is charged to exchange them. The national banks have since introduced the Peso Convertible (CUC) in substitution of foreign currencies, which is almost equal in value to the US Dollar. Money should only be changed at official exchange bureau or banks to avoid scams confusing the two currencies.

Response from Damian:
James and his wife are great clients, on this trip they brought items to donate to people with material shortages, they did charity with needy little children, they also gave away toys, parents and people could not find a way to thank these very Good people, we went to the Malecón de la Habana at the opening of the summer and the children who passed we gave them toys and chocolates, was a very beautiful and unforgettable experience for all who were there, acts of charity in Cuba are very helpful to People, since Cuba is a country with many material shortcomings, a donation helps a lot to a Cuban family, be it medicine clothes or other things. In short, James and his wife had a nice vacation in our rental house, we hope they come back again

Damien's place was great! Picked us up from the airport, showed us around Havana, he had a tour guide to help us as well and answer any questions we had. We stayed right in central Habana vieja and couldn't have asked for a better location. We also went out with Damien and his friends for a great night. Just keep in mind that everything comes with a little charge - breakfast, etc. But very worth it :) next time in Havana we will no doubt contact Damien again!

Ryan and his friend Tim are two great guys, I had the opportunity to look for them at the airport, to share with them in a nightclub one of the nights they enjoyed in Havana and they are very good people, in the house they were very clean and organized , The lady who attended them gave me very good reference of them, who are very polite and pleasant, who respected the rules of the house and were very talkative. They enjoyed a weekend in Havana with Rum Rum and many other amusements, we hope they will return soon. Regards Damian
