Official language

Spanish is the official language in Cuba. However, since this is a very popular destination for Canadians, it is not uncommon for people to exchange a few words in French or English with all-inclusive hotel staff.

Voltage

Voltage is 220V in most hotels. If your devices only work on 110V, be sure to bring a converter.

Electrical outlets are generally able to accommodate flat plugs (such as those used in North America) and round pin plugs (such as those used in Europe). On the other hand, remember that some older hotels can only take round pin plugs. Please remember to bring a power adapter and a converter.
