FUN FACTS ABOUT CUBA!
The official language is Spanish even though many Cubans can speak English.
Cuba is often referred to in Spanish as “El Cocodrilo” or “El Caima” because if you look at Cuba from the air, the island resembles a crocodile or alligator.
Sugar from sugar cane is the main crop grown in Cuba, followed by tobacco which is used in the making of hand-crafted cigars that are famous for being the finest cigars in the world.
Dominos is a popular game in Cuba and the people love to watch and play Baseball.
Five Important things YOU should know when you travel to Cuba:
Licensed U.S. travelers to Cuba will be authorized to import $400 worth of goods from Cuba, of which no more than $100 can consist of tobacco products and alcohol combined.
U.S. credit and debit cards are set to be permitted for use by travelers to Cuba for the first time in decades.
Cuba has an internet penetration of about five percent—one of the lowest rates in the world. The cost of telecommunications in Cuba is exorbitantly high, while the services offered are extremely limited.
In the coming months, we will re-establish an embassy in Havana and carry out high-level exchanges and visits between our two governments as part of the normalization process. As an initial step, the Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs will lead the U.S. Delegation to the next round of U.S.-Cuba Migration Talks in January 2015, in Havana.
These measures will further increase people-to-people contact; further support civil society in Cuba; and further enhance the free flow of information to, from, and among the Cuban people. Persons must comply with all provisions of the revised regulations; violations of the terms and conditions are enforceable under U.S. law.
