We were well prepared for our trip to Cuba and all of the items listed below were things we were definitely glad we brought with us. There is one item on this list that we added after our trip that we wish we had. Can you guess what that item was?
The sun is brutal in Cuba and you will be doing a ton of walking. If you aren't wearing clothing that covers the skin, we highly recommend putting on some sunscreen.
The brutal sun beaming down on Candy's face, but she doesn't have to worry because she brought sunscreen!
We really didn't have issues with mosquitoes in Old Havana when we were walking around, but the mosquitoes definitely came out at night. For rental homes that do not have air conditioning, the windows are left open for most of the day, so the bugs will most likely come in. On our first night, we had a couple of mosquitoes buzzing around in our room and we were so glad we brought some non-toxic repellent to get some sleep.
It's not necessary to give gifts to your hosts, but we heard from so many other travelers that common items like deodorant and toothpaste are hard to come by in Cuba, so it's a good idea to bring these items as gifts. We were so happy that we brought some toiletries for our Airbnb hosts because they were the nicest people and were so accommodating with everything we needed. They were grateful for the gifts.

Heels are not recommended in Cuba, especially in Old Havana where it is mostly cobblestone streets. We brought tennis shoes and sandals
