Young Cuban Woman Crying with Gratitude and Hugging a Friend

Support the Cuban People

The following information will help if you decide to bring goods to support the Cuban people.

Many of our travelers ask if they can bring anything to help the Cuban people. Our answer is always “Yes.” However, if you are not able to bring anything, there is no pressure for you to do so. We provide this information for those who feel led to bring goods in support. No matter if you decide to bring a few or many items, we are more than grateful that you are thinking of helping people that you don’t know. It means a lot because these are our loved ones and your generosity doesn’t go unnoticed.

Below is a list of some items that are currently tax-free to bring into Cuba. The following items are challenging to find in Cuba and are very much needed. Feel free to bring some or all of the following supplies, as whatever you bring will be a great blessing to many in need. Whichever you choose, one or all, thank you for your kind heart!

  • If you decide to purchase some or all of those goods, please put them in a plastic bag (a plastic bag is perfect) within your luggage. That will make it easier if customs decide to look at it upon your arrival. 
  • If you decide to bring a full suitcase of goods, please pack all of the goods in one suitcase by itself, separate from your personal items. If you do bring a full suitcase of goods, they will be placed aside after your arrival so that you do not have to carry them around during your tour. It is up to you whether you want to keep the suitcase.

Important Note: There is no fear in arriving with these goods, as the Cuban government allows the import of these goods at the moment. When filling out your customs form, there will be no need to claim those goods since it is a special allowance at the moment.
