- 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.

Cuba is a tropical island. the average temperature is 21° C in January and 27° C in July, Santiago de Cuba is located in the eastern part of Cuba, positioned in the Caribbean Sea, is a more warm city, and the weather is between 25° C and 28 ° C.
For this reason 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(In Santiago it is very rare cold temperatures). 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.
-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.
- YOU CAN EXCHANGE MONEY IN CUBA: In the 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).
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.
