Outside touristic places (especially Varadero), people only speak Spanish. If you want to tour the country you should at least bring a good phrase book or, even better, take an elementary course in Spanish.

Safety and Security
Traveling in some countries or regions can bring risks with it. That shouldn't always be a reason not to go there, but part of a thorough preparation is to find out about possible risks.
A good place to find information is the web site of the CIA World Factbook Cuba. Always seek advice from your own country's foreign department as well.
