Cubans hit with huge tax increases

Customs tax on baggage and cargo skyrocket for all those entering the country.

    Arriving in Cuba has just become a lot more expensive for both residents and tourists who carry more than 35kg of luggage.

    Customs tax has skyrocketed on some items from the equivalent of $1.8 to $10 per kilo.
