At the point when our trips to Cuba moved around we understood that the terrifically significant examination we had expected to do simply hadn’t occurred. We hadn’t booked any convenience or even had a decent gander at a guide. To put it obtusely, we knew nothing about going in Cuba. All we knew was that at 11 PM that evening we would be remaining in Havana air terminal with no sign where to go from that point.
Wi-Fi is not always available in the area
Not having wifi encompassing you the entire day truly causes you to acknowledge how dependent you are on it. No web implied no protracted examination meetings. Damn It! It additionally implied a ton of the things we do impromptu – looking into exercises for the afternoon, checking café and visit audits, conceivable roadtrips or the plausibility of precipitously changing plans through and through – were neither advantageous nor modest. Wifi is just accessible in certain public territories around there and is charged constantly.
Do not book your accommodation in advance
As we were showing up after the expected time around evening time in Havana we booked our first night as it were. What’s more, that is actually all we required. In the casa specific framework – where Cubans can lease spare rooms in their homes as vacationer convenience – it appears to be each host has companions or family members living the length and expansiveness of the country. They in a real sense have journals separated into each town in Cuba with pages of names and telephone numbers. At the point when you are prepared to proceed onward they will call around to reserve a spot in your next objective.
Cuba is not the easiest place to travel
We have both ventured out to a ton of nations in various pieces of the world, yet in Cuba it seemed like the frameworks set up explicitly for sightseers removed a portion of the opportunity of movement. There were such countless things we were told as outsiders we ‘weren’t permitted to do’. For voyagers searching for a touch of adaptability in their itinerary items this can be a reasonable inconvenience and makes being unconstrained somewhat troublesome. Coming from a western viewpoint numerous things simply don’t work in the most sensible manner and there were such countless minutes where we just halted and thought, Wait, what!?
Be prepared for crowds if you visit during the peak season
Our greatest misinterpretation was that Cuba was still a little distant and unseen corner of the globe. That it would simply be us walking around town with the Cubans. Thinking back, this was so guileless of us. Cuba has gotten the go-to objective in the world. It appears everybody that has at any point held the craving to ‘at some point’ visit Cuba has at long last and all the while concluded that time is currently.
You may find it hard to find a convenient store
Our first day in Havana it was steaming hot and all we needed was a virus container of water. Two hours of investigating the city later, figuring we’d pass a shop eventually, we were still confused. Numerous zones really don’t have stores with general supplies and in different parts it turns out those dark, foggy windows with no signage that seem as though a neglected distribution center are really overflowing with stuff available to be purchased.
