Cuba Useful InfoCuba is a tropical country, where most of the year it is convenient to wear light clothing, especially those made of cotton. Bath suits and sun-blocker creams should always be in your handbag, although a light sweater is recommendable if you are planning to visit mountain areas or if you travel on winter season (from November to March). It will be also useful to carry a light raincoat or an umbrella if you visit Cuba during the rainy season, from May to October. Comfortable shoes should be taken in consideration by trekking and walking enthusiasts. Plus, you should always drink bottled water.
Even though informal outfits (jeans, shorts, jerseys, etc.) are usually seen as correct, formal clothingmight be requested at some theaters, luxury restaurants, concert halls and others. Long-sleeved shirts and a tie will do well for most of those places.
When checking in the hotel, it will be highly convenient to ask about the facilities and services that require extra payments, such as: Safe-deposits, Room services, Mini-bar replenishment, among others.
