Can I bring my laptop to Cuba, and if so, what else should I be sure to have on hand?


  • If you’re bringing a laptop computer, it’s a good idea to bring a basic surge protector for protection against occasional spikes in the country’s electrical supply. Even an inexpensive surge protector offers sufficient protection.
  • Often it’s not easy to find CDs or DVDs readily available in Cuba, and when you do, they’re more expensive than overseas. If you think you’ll need some, and especially more specialized varieties, it’s best to bring a few with you.
  • Flash drives are available in Cuba but at a much higher cost than outside the country. Again, you might want to bring your own – and even a few extra (2 GB are much appreciated) to give out as gifts.

Submit your pictures to our Photo of the Day section
You don’t have to be a professional photographer, just send an image (in black and white or color), with a photo caption indicating where it was taken (city and country), type of camera or cell you used, and a small description about it.
Note: it is better for our format if you send horizontal orientation pictures. Even square will work but vertical is a problem.
