Caroline Hi, Erika! So glad to hear you’re gonna make it to Cuba! You will love it. $150/day does include lodging, but not at a swanky hotel.. only at a Casa Particular. Meals are around 8-11 CUC$ each, but you can find rad little shops that the locals go to where you’ll get a very simple sandwich for about 2 CUC$. Beer and other cocktails are divine.. around 3 CUC$ each, and the sangria was always my fave! xx

Erika Oh! One thing I forgot to ask- does that $150 per day you suggest include lodging? Also, how much would you say your average meal cost? Typical beer? Was there good street food? (Ok, so I have a few questions…)

Erika Thank you SO much for sharing this! I’ve been dying to go to Cuba for years and will hopefully make it there this you. You provided so many answers to questions I wouldn’t have even thought to ask! Thanks again.
