What's the safety like in Cuba?

I’ve always felt very safe in Cuba - even as a single woman walking alone.

Crime does exist in Cuba but on a relatively small scale considering that many people live in poverty.

Like in any other major city, Havana can have its problems. There have been recent reports or petty muggings. Try to keep away from dark quiet areas if on your own, particularly late at night and always try to take a taxi. 

You should always carry some form of ID or a photocopy of your passport in Havana.

In Havana you'll see lots of Tourist Police to ensure that you do not get hassled. Take care, especially whilst walking around Havana at night.
