Travelers must declare how much cash they are carrying to customs if it exceeds $5,000 USD per person.
It is more recommendable to use the word GIFTS instead of DONATIONS as donations require other customs procedures to be entered in Cuba. Small amounts of items are acceptable while visiting Cuba. Bring limited quantities of small items because too many of one-single item may cause delays upon entry. If you plan to bring gifts, please inform your tour leader and they will be able to advise you as to whom/where and when you can distribute them most conveniently.
