WHAT IF I BECOME ILL OR INJURED DURING MY TRIP?
You have no reason to be concerned with health issues during your visit to Cuba. Cuba has the highest percentage of physicians per capita in the world and they take great pride in providing tourists with good medical care. If you are staying at the Hotel Parque Central or Hotel Nacional, a 24-hour physician is available at a nominal cost. If you are staying at another hotel, the hotel staff will direct you to a clinic. No vaccinations are needed for travel into Cuba.
No inoculations are required. Please see the website for the Center for Disease Control for recommendations.
As of 1 May 2010, Cuban authorities are requiring that travelers to the island have insurance coverage for medical emergencies. The cost of your airline ticket includes insurance that covers travelers while in Cuba. The insurance that is included in your package covers the following:
MEDICAL EXPENSES for sudden illness and accidents up to the amount of 25,000 CUC
REPATRIATION COST up to the amount of 7,000 CUC
