Electricity & Plugs in Cuba

June 17, 2015

Cuba uses the 110 V at 60 Hz and 220 V at 50 Hz voltage systems in parallel, but the 110 V is standard.

Socket types used in Cuba are: type A, type B, type C, type L.

Usually, the 110 V system is most popular, but hotels usually use it in parallel with the 220 V.

The type C (otherwise commonly referred to as the European plug) will work normally, as will the type A (Japanese) plug - with the respective sockets.

Interestingly, there are sockets that combine the type A with type C.

Strangely, there are wall sockets in the bathrooms of hotels, but these tend to be exclusively 110 V plugs and they only work with low wattage appliances, such as hair dryers and shavers.
