Top Local Tips for Havana
Visit Havana Spend time on the Malecon. At any hour there are people. It is a "community picnic" atmosphere. Carry water with you. Wash your hands alot. Know where you are going. Enjoy.
STOP INFLATING PRICES!! To all tourists who are not savvy enought to get how it works. The prices in cuba have steadily gone up for services because of people out there who are unknowingly inflating the prices of these services. Now before leaving for Cuba most Canadians will get the 411 from their friends about what to pay and what not to pay. Seems that americans/europeans are not getting the memo and thus pay crazy prices, this makes the local cubans adjust and inflate the rate. While in Havana, I was amazed on what europreans/americans I met were paying for services for which we were paying a fraction of the price for. If they gave us high prices, we'd tell them we are Canadians and not stupid, they'd stop the charade and charge us normal prices. Please be aware of this to keep cost of services down, remember in a country where the average person makes 20 pesos a month, don't you think an 80 peso guide/cab ride is a bit excessive, use some common sense and business savvy, your being hustled!
Fending off the hustlers Cohiba, Taxi, Guide, Peso? Yes hustlers are everywhere. If you dont want to be hastled, learn to say, "I have to go to my bus, I have to meet someone, I've already bought some, or NO NO NO!" Don't be distracted, don't start a conversation, and dont feel bad. One pregnant lady said, she needed money for her baby. I said, "No es mi bebe!!" The painting vendor in the market laughed. If you want to be led into a private home to buy a box of cigars cheap, the cigars really aren't that bad, and the occasional cigar smokers probably wont know the difference. But dont bring them back in your carryon, they might not have the right seal, and if found could be confiscated.
