10 Tips for Traveling Solo in Cuba

Posted on

Cuba might not strike you as the safest place to be traveling solo, but after walking around Havana and the beaches by myself for two weeks, I can say that I really wasn’t worried the whole time. Well, besides when a guard stopped me and asked what country I was from. Definitely thought I was going to jail for being unaccompanied for a second there.

But regardless, with any solo traveling expedition, you should always take some pre-cautions, and research what it’s like to be alone in places like Cuba…where no one speaks English, credit and debit cards are not accepted, and Wifi is almost non-existent. Here’s what I gathered from traveling solo in Cuba!

1. Learn Basic Spanish Phrases

Good luck ordering food or transportation if you don’t know basic Spanish!

If you don’t at least know a few basic phrases in Spanish, you are going to have a really tough time solo traveling in Cuba. Aside from helping you get around, knowing basic Spanish phrases will also help anti-target you as a tourist, and prevent you from getting over-charged or hustled.
