"drink the bottled water!..." Cuba Favorite Tip by RickL

Cuba General: 276 reviews and 209 photos

Favorite thing: drink the bottled water! However, most hotels and restaurants will try to sell you the little bottles. So I suggest you go to the grocery stores and buy the larger bottles because you will be using a lot of water while you are there. Have a smaller bottle to carry around with you but refill it from the larger bottle. Saves money!
Also, be aware of the water you use to brush your teeth, wash your plates etc. Our baby became VERY ill from the bath we used to bathe her in when we were last in Cuba.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
