Keeping tabs

This last uncharted corner of the Caribbean is opening up due to policy changes that could boost Cuba's superyacht industry and the best way to explore it is by yacht. But, as Risa Merl discovers, you need to get there quick before this country frozen in time changes forever.

Insider tip: Keep tabs on utilities

“It can be expensive to get water and electricity and you can end up with a huge bill,” warns Jerry Berton, of Cuban specialists cubaseas.com, who says one client was charged $2,800 for three days on a 23 metre yacht. “Take a photo of your water and electric metre so there’s no discussion about it when the bill comes.”
