What food precautions should I take in Cuba?

In Havana, most foods are generally safe to eat and require similar precautions as you would exercise while traveling anywhere abroad. Outside of Havana and in the provinces, we recommend exercising similar precautions as you would when traveling to any developing country. In the provinces, we recommend eating only fruits and vegetables that can be peeled and have not been sliced. Take extra care to make sure your food is thoroughly cooked. If it doesn’t look or smell good, don’t chance it; send it back and ask for something else.
