Can I eat street food in Cuba?

It’s not uncommon to see street vendors selling small, portable fare. While we don’t recommend eating street fare, please use the same discretion as you would when traveling to any international destination. Check to make sure the food item looks fresh. It’s often best to buy from vendors who are busy with lots of customers. If you are choosing a food item that needs to be cooked, make sure it's thoroughly cooked at a high temperature.
