Power for Appliances?

Hey everyone just wondering if anyone knows if I need a converter to use my hair dryer, curling iron, etc. Not really for myself but travelling with two young girls who need to utilize this stuff on a daily basis…lol. If I need a converter what type do I buy and from where etc??? Thanks ahead of time.

Leaving in less than three weeks to Playa Caleta, Varadero

Yes you need a converter for any appliance you intend to use in cuba. Buy at any travel type store or radio shack type store. They will know the type you need. can’t recall at the moment the type I used. Have fun

You will find some 110v outlets in Cuba. For example, at the Sol Pelicano in Cayo Largo, there are outlets for 110v and 220v (clearly marked) in the rooms. I recharged my portable DVD player just by plugging it into the wall - piece of cake! I had brought a converter though, just in case.

sunforme, many travel appliances have dual voltage capacity, in which case you might need only an adapter. But be sure to bring a converter as well, just in case. I bought mine at Canadian Tire.
