In July I will be going , to Colombia, Panama , and Cuba is there anything, I should know , safe wise
Cuba is a safe country (the soldiers in the trees next to the beach with guns are there to protect you). Follow normal precautions.
But make sure you do not buy cigars off the street / beach - they're either stolen or fakes. Make sure you have a receipt to show at customs in Cuba, and, most likely, whichever country you bring them into.
Your most likely risk is Montezuma's Revenge ... Many people think it is from the water, but I've seen some pretty bad food handling practices ....
Cubans are lovely people and it is a great place to visit.
I plan Colombia and Panama soon myself, so let me know what you learn! over 7 years ago
