Entry requirements for Cuba

Entry into Cuba is only possible with an international health insurance (not from a US insurance), as well as a tourist card. Anyone who cannot provide proof of insurance at the time of entry will be obliged to purchase a Cuban health insurance at the airport. The tourist card, which can be bought - among others – at any Cuban Embassy, ​​will have to be presented to the airline when checking-in for the Cuba flight.

Casas Particulares (Private Accommodation)

In a lot of places in Cuba clients have to beware of "jineteros" or 'touts' that will stop their car or meet them off the buses. Through grand gestures and claims these people will try and find ways of discouraging tourists from going to the casa they have booked and lead them to another casa instead. They can say things like that they are there on behalf of the house-owner (even that they are a cousin/uncle or similar), that the house is full, or that it had to be closed etc. and that they have arranged an alternative casa. The clients should not trust or believe them, instead they should make their way to the address of the confirmed accommodation anyway and insist on speaking to the owner.

 

Program changes before commencement of services

CUBA Bikers strives to carry out the agreed services according to the program. However, it cannot be excluded that changes in program and service will be necessary. CUBA Bikers shall notify customer of such changes promptly and will strive to mitigate their effects. CUBA Bikers shall also notify the customer of any changes in the price as a result of changes in the program and services.

 

Program changes during a travel

The customer shall take note that in the Caribbean, in spite of a good travel organization, program and service changes cannot be excluded during a trip. This is due to weather/natural events, governmental measures, force majeure, supply bottlenecks, or other unforeseeable or unavoidable circumstances, etc. CUBA Bikers strives to minimize the consequences of such changes. CUBA Bikers is entitled to refuse the remedy in case the defect has been caused by customer, in the event of force majeure, or if the elimination of the aforementioned defect should incure excessive costs.

TIPS and SUGGESTIONS

We highly suggest to book your flight immediately after you have received our confirmation. Thus the earlier you book, the cheaper it might be. We have had great experience by doing this and therefore we can recommend it.

 

The finalizing of the journey refund of the deposit is recommended, but it is left however to the participant’s choice. We recommend you to check with your insurance carrier for services and prices.

 

Although Cuba emanates a dispassionate charm and great charisma, it is not an easy travel destination. We have done and will continue doing everything to make your stay as pleasant and trouble-free as possible. Nevertheless, it is always good to bring along a certain amount of peace, patience and serenity. The Caribbean life style, culture, and ways of doing things are very different from ours.

 

As social and cultural etiquette we ask to refrain on making any political statements or remarks, this could come to have very unpleasant consequences, not only for you but for us and for fellow travelers as well.

 

We highly stress the fact to pay attention to the main rules that must be adhered to in Cuba; if you follow the instructions, you will not only have a great time but you will also experience a great, unforgettable tour.

You have our word on it!

 

We look forward to having you with us and making your

DREAMS COME TRUE.


Kind regards in the name of
CUBA Bikers
