Is Cuba safe for female travelers?

Female travelers in Cuba

Cuba is one of the safest countries in the world, also for female travelers. Sexual assault of any kind is practically unheard of and women are typically free to go wherever they want, whenever they want without worry. That being said, always use good judgement and take precautions when necessary. Women do tend to receive unwanted attention in the form of catcalling when walking by groups of local men and it is best to walk by without acknowledging it.
