Conflicting information exists on what type of electrical to use in Cuba.
World Standards EU says
110 V / 220 V60 Hz
A / B / C / L
Collette saysAlthough Cuba also uses 110 voltage with standard American outlets, some hotels only offer 220 voltage. An adaptor (which changes the physical plug) and/or converter (which changes the electric current) may be necessary if you plan to use an appliance with voltage different from the standard within the country you are visiting. Please note, if your appliance has dual voltage you may still need an adaptor for the plug. When packing your electronic items for travel, please review the converter electric current level to make sure it the same or greater than the items you are planning on using. If you plan on utilizing or transporting a sleep apnea machine, please remember to pack an extension cord & adapter plug to ensure proper function.
You will find a mix of electrical currents and plug types used in Cuba. Around 90% of the hotels and casas particulares use a 110-volt current with standard U.S.-style two- or three-prong outlets. However, some outlets are rated 220 volts, particularly in hotels that cater to European clientele. These are usually marked and sometimes accept only two-prong round plugs. For all intents and purposes, you should have personal appliances rated for 110-volt current, with U.S.-style prongs, or the appropriate converters. It is also essential to carry a three-to-two-prong adapter for any appliance you have that has a three-prong plug.

Far Away Places - Cuba: Once a playground for Americans who flocked there to enjoy the beaches, the wide-open parties and gambling, the Castros and the Communist party have changed our island neighbor to a very different place. Cuba has been largely shut off from US view since the US embargo in 1961. Let’s take a peek at Cuba today. You’ll still see nostalgic Eisenhower era US automobiles on the streets and the people dancing to a Latin beat while enjoying free education and health care. Has Cuba become an example of a communist utopia? Maybe, maybe not. This session takes a look at Cuba today. By Terri Dion
