Travel blogger advises on travelling with kids in Cuba

Posted: 16-Apr-16 15:11

Cuba has recently opened up for travel from the USA and it's an incredible travel destination. It's lively, colourful and culturally rich and there are so many things to see and do. But is it child-friendly? You bet it is!

Travel blogger advises on travelling with kids in Cuba

Travel blogger Victoria from GlobeTotting.com took her kids on a getaway to Cuba, taking advantage of the fact that travel between the USA and Cuba is now allowed. They booked a 10 day tour for the family over the half term break, eager to see this Caribbean destination before it was changed by American influence.

Cuba is a fantastic place to travel with your family, as there is an abundance of delicious food, friendly locals, lively culture, warm climate, beautiful architecture and interesting things to do. The kids will love it because of the shallow calm waters on the white sand beaches, the beautiful waterfalls, riding horses with real cowboys, exploring ancient cave networks and much more. The food is also very child friendly and you'll find many options on menus such as grilled chicken, pasta and rice dishes.

Also, the Cuban people are extremely kind and welcoming and they love children. However, it's not perfect and in her blog Victoria notes that it's hard to ignore the hardship that the Cuban people face.

The accommodation available in Cuba is mostly either hotels or casa particulares, which are accommodations offered within private homes. These rooms in private homes are lovely for families, as they have a welcoming and friendly environment. There are a wide range of hotels in Cuba, from the historic to the budget basics. There are also plenty of all-inclusive beach resorts where the little ones can play in the pool while the adults relax and talk.

Make sure that you and your kids are protected against dengue fever. There is no vaccine for it but you can decrease your chances of getting bit by a mosquito by wearing repellant, using mosquito deterrents such as citronella coils and covering as much of your skin as possible. Also, talk to your doctor about the risk of the Zika virus when you are travelling.
