Mom & Son: RTW Monthly Budget – Cuba December 2015
4 Weeks in Cuba – What did we spend ?
WooHoo our expenses are coming down at last !!! $4,000 this month which is significantly less than the last 3 months !
Monthly Expenses (Sept 2015 – Dec 2015):
Month Expenses Location Sep-15 $ 7550 UK & Spain Oct-15 $ 6150 USA Nov-15 $ 6250 Caribbean & Mexico Dec-15 $ 4000 Cuba
How did we spend those $4,000 ?
Accommodation really made a difference this month, we stayed in “Casas Particulares” (Home Stays) all month, living with Cuban families in their homes which was super fun as well as very cheap 🙂
Interestingly food was nearly as expensive as the accommodation, Street Food is virtually the only food you can pay for in Cuban pesos (which is cheap) but most of it is wheat/gluten based (pasta, pizza, pies ….) so we couldn’t eat as cheaply as Id hoped.
Total expenses for December 2015 = $4, 000
How about our daily expenses ?
Our daily average for a Home Stay was $55 night although in reality it was more like $40 for a nice room with aircon but we did spend a couple of days at a resort in Varadero which bumped our average up.
