took Cuba trip on 25 November 2016 What to bring

It was wonderful. A few ideas. Our Cuban tour director mentioned that some little luxuries are non existent; i.e. mens cologne, deodorant, shampoo, razors and razor blades and shaving cream. Items are rationed and the shelves are bare.
Tauck does not mention any gifts, so do some reading.

I arrived the day Castro died. Interesting.
US dollars can be selectively used, but no credit cards. The hotel exchanged $ to Cuban convertibles and back again without not too much penalty. I brought a lot of Euros which had no penalty.
