Emergency medical coverage while in Cuba

Included in the cost of every tour is emergency medical insurance from the Cuban agency ASISTUR. All island visitors are required to have this policy in place upon arrival to Cuba.

ASISTUR medical coverage is only valid for the dates of your stay in Cuba. This coverage is limited to emergency medical issues that may arise while in Cuba. This policy does not include non-emergency treatment or non-emergency services for pre-existing conditions.
