Somethings you just cannot photograph
There there are some things in Cuba that should not be photographed. Do not take photos of any military or police personnel or buildings as this is strictly forbidden. It’s not as though you will get into a huge amount of trouble if you are caught, but you will be instructed to delete the photos, and we’ve heard cases of people having their cameras confiscated.
Some photos will cost you
You will find this at the entry of some of the attractions that to take photos will cost you a little extra. This is always noted at the entry, so if you want to snap away, you’ll need to pay the fee.
You may find that in some of the more touristy areas people will approach you to get photographed, generally, women who will be wearing traditional, vibrantly colored clothing. They will require a small fee – around 1-2 dollars to be in your photo.
It’s up to you whether or not you want to pay a small fee for a nice photo, but of course, posed photos such as this do not capture the authentic side of Cuba.
