In this article, we will discuss some of the best items to bring back from your trip to Cuba. Trust us, with these tips, you’ll be ready when it comes time to choose your souvenirs!
Beware of restrictions
The first thing to remember about items that can be brought back from Cuba is that there are some restrictions. However, with that being said, there’s a huge variety of products and souvenirs that can be brought back without any problem at all!
There are some specific restrictions on what can be brought back from Cuba. For example, it’s important not to buy any items that have a picture of either Fidel or Che Guevara. It’s best to not buy anything that has the Cuban flag on it at all. Items like these can be confiscated when you re-enter your home country.
Rum, Coffee, and Cigars
Things like rum and coffee are very popular items to bring back from Cuba, as is silver. You can also pick up a variety of Cuban cigars that are perfect if you’re a smoker. These cigars are made using Cuban tobacco and they’re simply delicious! Escobar cigars are my favorite. They’re so smooth!
Some people think that if they buy rum in their home country it’s going to be better than what they can get when on vacation in Cuba. This is not the case! Some of the best rum you’ll ever have is right at your fingertips in Cuba. So, when you’re on your trip to Cuba, be sure that you pick up a few bottles just in case they don’t let them into your carry-on bag when you get back home!
Cuban coffee is great for bringing back, but it may be difficult because it has to be roasted when you get home. You’ll have to figure out if any local coffee shops will be able to roast it for you. Cuban coffee is great either way, but the best kind is the dark roasted, sugary sweet type!
Chocolate and Rum Cake
Don’t forget about chocolate! You can get amazing types of chocolate in Cuba at a very reasonable price. And, to accompany your chocolate you should consider picking up some Cuban rum cakes. These are to die for!
If you look hard enough, there are some items that you can get from Cuba without having to worry about bringing them back at all. This is true of many local products that are made in Cuba and sold to the public. So, if you find a great product that can’t be bought elsewhere, make sure you pick up as much as you can!
Bring back some music!
For those who love music, there’s nothing better than buying yourself some Cuban music when traveling to Cuba. It’s such a unique experience and once you get home, you’ll be able to relax while you listen to it!
Pack your bags!
The bottom line is that there are a lot of items to bring back from Cuba. You just have to know what they are and where to get them! So, next time you head on a trip, be sure to think about taking back some of these great souvenirs. Trust me, you’ll be glad that you did! Remember, much like Mexico, Cubans speak Spanish.Now, just grab your suitcase and head to Cuba! Don’t forget to pick up a few bottles of rum and maybe a box of cigars as well.
