First off, I just finished reading your book and it’s fantastic. You really give very useful info and debunk most tourist ideologies and xenophobia. I do however have one question regarding the SIM renting. You said it cost 3CUC per day to rent but how do the call and data charges work? I assume the daily 3 CUC is just rental fee and the calls and data is on top of that? Do I have to select a calling plan? That would make sense to my pea brain but I just wanted to ask.

Hi Jayne, the price for the sim rental covers only the rental. It is possible that the Cuban telephone company now has other options, so you would have to discuss details concerning rental pricing for the duration if your trip. You might be able to get a deal if you rent for a week or more
Once you rent the sim, you have to put money on your account. It’s always pay as you go. There are no phone plans in Cuba. So you would put 20cuc and then add more as you need it. Local calls are like 35 cents per minute during the day and 10 cents per minute at night. Texts are like 7 cents each I think. They offer data options too (recently started). The data is expensive and usually works terribly, so it might not be a great option.
I hope this answers your question. Have a great timeJayneGuestSeptember 1, 2019 at 10:51 pmPost count: 195
