All establishments and shops in Cuba have a four-hour break in the middle of the day (traditional for Latin American and Mediterranean countries “siesta”). However, in the resort areas “siesta”, for obvious reasons, is significantly reduced. In Cuba, there are stores only for the local population, where the sale of goods is carried out on cards, for Cuban pesos. At the same time, there are other stores that trade only for currency, which are located in Havana and tourist centers. These stores are mainly located either in spa centers or in Havana.
The price level of basic necessities and products in Cuba is quite low. Non-essential goods are very expensive. There is a certain shortage of film and a number of imported goods that are imported mainly from Mexico. Quality rum in Cuba will cost $ 7-8 per bottle, beer in a restaurant $ 1-1.5.
