    Cuba

    I recently stumbled into an article about travelling in Cuba. Except for the fact that tourists have to pay higher prices for everything they buy it did sound like a good place to visit. However, I know nothing about security in the country? Anyone been to Cuba? What would you say about security in general? Is the country safe to visit?

    Re: Cuba

    Cuba is among the safest countries to visit not just in the American continent but around the world. Crime has very low rates and except for some aisle thieving cases, it wouldn't be crime at all.

    On the other hand it's a lie that you will have pay higher prices for everything. Ultimately tourists pay more for everything wherever they go, if they buy from the boutiques inside costly resorts, but outside, down the streets, prices are very cheap if compared to buy stuff as local in the USA.

    What happens in Cuba is that they have two different coins one is the Cuban Peso that is used for locals, and the other is called CUC which is a coin for tourists equivalent to around $24/$25 Cuban pesos, which is more less what a dollar cost in the currency exchange market.

    Cuba is fairly safe to visit, and is said to be one of the most medically advanced countries in the world! The only bad thing is the fact the tourists have to use a completely different currency... That's really unfair, but if you really want to visit this place, then you must overlook all that.

    Cuba is by far, one of the safest vacation destinations. I have been to several spots in Cuba over the past four years and never had a problem. I have ventured into the city of Havana and Varadero without guides and felt very safe. I don't find things expensive for tourists. I guess it depends on where you shop. I usually shop at the markets or outside stalls and bartering is always welcome.
    Anyone who has the chance to visit Cuba should really take advantage of it. If you love different cultures and lifestyles you will enjoy mingling with the locals. At present, there is no commercialization in Cuba, such as McDonalds, Starbucks etc. So when in Cuba, you eat, live and sleep as Cubans do. Its amazing. Mind you things will be changing in the next few years as the embargo against the United States is going to be lifted. I'm not sure what changes will happen, but I don't think Cuba will be the same.
