Cuba is a country unlike any other. Lined with 1950s-era cars, sugar-white beaches and vibrant pastel houses, a trip to Cuba is sure to delight and surprise you as you soak up the sun on this Caribbean island.

Food and drink in Cuba

Cuban cuisine offers a delicious mix of Spanish and Afro-Caribbean influenced food. With limited availability of fresh fruit and vegetables during the hotter months of the year, dishes in Cuba frequently feature a mix of rice, beans, chicken, beef and pork.
It may come as a surprise that while Cuba is an island, seafood dishes don’t typically get top billing on most local menus. While traditional Cuban dishes such as ‘Congris’ (a tasty mix of black beans and rice) offer a taste of local homemade food, there are also a few interesting twists on American classics, such as the ‘Frita’ - a Cuban-style beef burger, ground and mixed with chorizo.

Useful info for visiting Cuba

Visitors to Cuba are advised to take their required spends for the holiday in cash; ATMs are scarce around the island and often don’t accept foreign bank cards. On the subject of money, Cuba has two currencies in circulation: the Cuban Convertible Peso or "Cuban Dollar" (CUC), and the Cuban National Peso (CUC). The "Cuban Dollar" (CUC) is aligned with the US Dollar and should be used by tourists as their go-to currency.
It’s likely that you’ll see dual pricing in many stores and restaurants for each of these Cuban currencies. For those who wish to tip servers, a tipping rate of 10% is commonplace in Cuba.
