TravelPulse, a major onine travel publisher was ticking off all the things you must know abiut Cuba, because, well it’s a bit tricky there.
The banks are different, there are two currencies, and the internet is probably still dial-up. Then there’s the issue of travel insurance.
What TravelPulse said: "It's always a good idea to have travel insurance when globetrotting, but to enter Cuba it's actually obligatory that you have coverage. We had our insurance purchased and were ready to present it to immigration on arrival in Havana, but weren't asked to show it! However, other travelers we met were asked to present their policies. To be safe, make sure you purchase travel insurance. Our go-to insurance provider has always been World Nomads ... There are hundreds of insurance providers out there, contact a few and find the policy (and cost) that works best for you."
