Are There Many Insects In Cuba?

Cuba does not have an especially large population of insects. But it is a tropical climate and there are mosquitoes, ticks, sandflies, houseflies, bees, and wasps. Make sure to bring insect repellent with you when you go on hikes and other outdoorsy adventures.

We know they’re not insects, but there are several arachnids native to Cuba. Tarantulas live in the tropical forests, but keep in mind that they are not venomous to humans.
