Havana Travel Guide

Q: My Family and I are travelling to Cuba this month, none of us are planning on having any accidents, but, if we do we of course have good insurance cover but were wondering what health care was like in such a poor country?
A: Despite it being a poor country, the Cuban health system is considered one of the best in south and central America. However, as with any foreign trip, be sure to read the the official FCO travel advice before you go.

 Traveler Reviews and Information
Julie Karen Clark says:
"Going to Guardalavaca in June and will definitely be visiting Havana - it looks amazing and seems very similar to some parts of Nicosia - can't wait!"
Maria says:
"I visited Havana in December 2007, although it is sad to see people living in poverty and what were once fantastic buildings in states of disrepair the Cuban peoples attitude is so refreshing. They may not own very much but they certainly know how to party and we were met with beaming smiles and friendly words everywhere we went. I hope the USA lift the travel restrictions soon, Cuba could certainly do with the increased revenue from tourism and the American people are missing out on a Havana unique experience."
David James says:
"We visited Havana in 2000 while Fidel still held onto power. In some ways there is an air of sadness to the city. It has some stunning architecture but it is crumbling away. It is now supported as a UNESCO world heritage centre so hopefully they can consolidate what is there. the people came across as being very friendly, but the main tourist area is very controlled. We saw the police arrest people who obviously should not have been there. I would love to go back in 5 to 10 years and see the changes."
Jan Dart says:
"Choose a suitable American vintage dream car outside the cathedral and cruise around the streets, in a cloud of choking fumes! We paid £15 for an hour and our driver took us outside the city to places we would never have found on our own, as we had already visited the main sites."
Eleanor Croft says:
"We visited in 2007 and were blown away by the old town. Stunning Spanish colonial architecture, sadly much of it left to go to ruin. However, the lack of sparkle on the buildings is more than made up for by the Cuban attitude to life - live it and live it with a Mojito and a salsa!"
Abhineet singh says:
"I think that havana is "an island goddess". With so many islands I could only see a few of them. Its a charming place especially "the jesus maria street". I loved it so much that i didnt want to leave..So i wud hughly recommend all to visit havana"
Judy Guffey says:
"What a grand place full of music, smiles and laughter (and that was in 2001)....imagine it's happier now with some restrictions lifted. Now if only the U.S. would lift restrictions on traveling...I'd go back in a heartbeat."
