"buy gifts for Cuban friends..." Cuba Favorite Tip by RickL
Cuba General: 276 reviews and 209 photos
Favorite thing: buy gifts for Cuban friends from the dollar stores. Most things that people recommend bringing as gifts can be bought in the Cuban dollar stores... but at very high prices for Cubans! The other sad thing is the waiting. There was a mob of Cuban people waiting just to get in one day and my Cuban friends asked for my passport. They knocked on the door and flashed my passport which allowed us to immediate entry. I was VERY embarassed about this but the Cubans left waiting did not seem offended or angry but seemed to accept it as part of life! It seems that Cubans have to spend much of their day just waiting.Que triste!
