Before you cruise in a 1950’s Chevy through the streets of Havana, you’ll need to prepare properly for your trip. Our SOLA travelers are excited to share their favorite finds to keep you on your toes. Get ready to revel in the beauty of Cuba and embrace its charms without any surprises.
Cuba is pretty safe when it comes to walking around. I went with a girl friend and we did experience a certain degree of sexual harassment on the streets, we speak spanish so we seemed "more approachable" I guess. Just make sure to go to touristy places and you should be good, negotiate with cabs and make sure to do research on where to eat so you can have a good experience.
“I traveled to Cuba with a group but traveled around alone. It's the safest place I've ever been, not a lick of street harassment, the most difficult thing will be not getting ripped off by cabs but that'll be because you're a tourist not because you're a woman and if you are firm in haggling you'll be fine."
Perfectly fine to go alone, people are nice and helpful. It will be a little tougher if you don't speak Spanish though because the majority of people don't speak English, but that’s a convenience issue, not a safety concern.
