Theft of items from checked baggage at Cuban airports is frequent. Bags, including locked suitcases, are being opened, and items removed.

Reports of violent crime are also on the rise. Exercise caution at all times, especially in tourist areas and crowded places. Police officers may speak only Spanish.
