Sun, Caribbean sea, stunning beaches, exquisite mojitos and the rhythm of rumba and salsa: a trip to Cuba is a dream come true. If you have decided to make it come true and embark on an adventure to this amazing island, to enjoy your vacation to the fullest you will also need to feel comfortable. Therefore, before leaving, it is vital to arrange a health insurance that will provide you with health care in Cuba in case of need. Cuba is a safe country and its national health system is up to the standards of many destinations, but as in any place in the world it is always advisable to leave with your back covered and prevent the unexpected. This isn't just a recommendation: since 2010, travel insurance in Cuba is mandatory for all those who travel to this country, whether they are tourists or Cubans living abroad.
Although you can get insurance upon arrival to your destination, we strongly suggest to make your life easier and get your insurance for Cuba online before leaving. There is no minimum limit, but the insurance must be arranged with a licensed company in Cuba, so be careful not to obtain your travel insurance in Cuba from an American company, as it will not be accepted. Travel insurance in Cuba is not just a formality: even though the country is safe, there can always be some kind of health risks. The most common - besides potential accidents as in any other place in the world - are mild gastrointestinal viruses or more severe diseases such as Zika and Chikungunya, up to rare cases of infections such as cholera. A risk not to be underestimated, moreover, are cyclones that can occur in the months from June to November. If we add to this the fact that the costs of hospitalizations and operations are quite high and drugs may be in short supply due to the embargo, it is obvious that before leaving you should get yourself covered.
