Is Cuba Safe?

Cuba is a relatively safe country to visit, especially compared to other Caribbean South American countries. There is a large police presence in Cuba, and crimes against tourists are punished severely.

Hurricanes and tropical storms are the most common natural disasters in Cuba. Cuba is considered a model Caribbean country when it comes to natural disaster preparedness. It’s fairly easy to avoid most bad weather by simply avoiding hurricane season, which lasts from August to October. October is typically the worst month for hurricanes.
