Booking your hotel room and making arrangements with a travel agency or hotel agent can be tricky.
Travel agents and hotel agents often charge a fee for a room, but some hotels offer more affordable rates.
You may also be asked to pay for a rental car, tour guide fees, or a fee to rent a car on the island itself.
If you do choose to book your hotel on the spot, make sure to book the right room and plan to stay at a hotel that’s not in the touristy areas.
If the hotel is full, it may be difficult to get into your room.
If so, make a reservation to reserve a spot in the hotel lobby or lobby room.
We’ve included a guide to what to expect in a hotel on Cuba.
We also recommend checking with a local hotel or resort to see if they offer tours or activities.
The best way to find out is to check with your travel agency to make arrangements for a trip or a guided tour.
