  • Hello.
    Two weeks ago I arrived from a 5 week long vacation in Cuba. It was great! I loved it. And of course I met many nice people there. But i don`t understand: Are all cubans allowed to have a e-mail adress,or not?? And how much does it cost?? To open it? Or what is the system? I`v got different information.
    I schould be very pleased if you whill answer this question!! Thank you!

    • Most Cubans that have e-mail get it through their workplaces or through being members of organizations like the journalists and writers and artists associations or doctors and other health workers. Others access e-mail at public facilities. A Cuban can’t contract private Internet service at their home. Some do obtain a connection illegally to access e-mail from home.
