The majority of the time that you go on holiday you can be pretty certain that you know pretty much what to expect. For example, if you go on holiday to America even if you’ve never been there you have a fair idea of what it’s going to be like. However, if you are going somewhere that you don’t hear much about and it has a completely different culture, it can be a daunting experience.
If you decide to take part in a Cuba travel experience, this may be one of the times when you are a bit unsure of what to expect. For this reason it is important to do your research so you know what to expect, what to wear and what may be considered as rude.
The first thing people usually want to know before committing to Cuba travel is what the weather is going to be like. It is very rare that the temperature drops below about 26C and it can get up to about 34C in the hotter months. Whilst this is great news that you never have to worry that you are going to go when it’s cold, you should be careful of the hurricane season which is from June until November. Don’t let this put you off Cuba travel if you want to go at this time because it is rare that there will be a hurricane with disastrous effects.
The main language spoken is Spanish so it is helpful if you know some of the language. However, just like with pretty much everywhere in the world, due to the large number of people embarking on Cuba travel, most things have been translated into English as well.
Something you may discover while on Cuba travel is that pharmacies are virtually non – existent which means that you will not be able to buy anything that you would normally expect to find in one. Therefore it is very important that you take anything with you that you may need. This includes everything from pain killers and antiseptic to plasters and sun cream.
In many countries abroad you are faced with people begging for money on the streets and Cuba travel is no exception. Don’t give money as this encourages begging but instead give useful things such as toiletries, clothes and books.
Anyone who has been a Cuba travel experience will agree that it is an unforgettable experience. Once you know the ins and outs of the country you are guaranteed to have a great time and not find yourself faced with any nasty surprises.
