    Just heard that as of 1st may 2010 all visitors to cuba must have travel medical insurance THAT IS RECOGNIZED BY THE CUBAN GOVERNMENT !
    A list of acceptable companies has not yet been made available so anyone traveling soon should hold of buying insurance incase its not valid!
    Anyone ith insurance they dont accept must purchase their insurance on arrival in cuba (cost not known).

        Some corporate companies offer travel medical insurance, so you may first want to check with your own to see if you're already covered (if so, just remember to ask for the policy to be printed out and bring it along with you to Cuba).

        Also, some credit card companies offer this with their gold card or platnum status cards - just check in case you are already covered (get your policy printed and bring it along).

        I have also found the following travel medical insurance provider, their rate is $25 + tax. Here is the link:
        Palm Financial

        Click on Buy Now, and select Worldwide excluding USA... enter your details to get the price quote.

        This is not great news... but I hope my info above helps!

          Thanks, I got a little worried because someone was saying it was an extra $200, but I have also checked into it also and thank goodness that price I heard is wrong. Thanks again :)
