We're leaving on the 27th to go to Varadero (First timers) I read alot about Cuban's liking to trade Taxi Rides for things they can't get there. I also like to leave gifts for the maids and give to children. What kinds of things do they like? I read hats, soaps, calculators. But what kind of hats? Canada Hats? I have a 15 year old son, I was thinking of bringing his used clothing, shoes, sandles. Is that acceptable??
I've only ever been to Dominican and the locals went crazy over used clothes and shoes.
Any ideas on what items they need would be appreciated.
