Recharging is helping. Recharges connect Cubans living on the island with the rest of the world.
With a recharge, you turn your money into phone calls, text messages or even mobile data, benefiting your family and friends in Cuba. This way, you allow them to be in touch with you anytime they want to or need to.
Who can purchase a recharge?
Anyone outside of Cuba, as long as they have access to the Internet and an electronic payment method to make the transaction.
That payment method can be a credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discovery, American Express), Prepaid cards or a PayPal account.
There are simple recharges, which you can do every day. Although it is best to take advantage of promotions, which usually last 5 or 6 days and are normally available up to twice a month. The time interval, as well as the terms and conditions of the promotion in general, is determined by ETECSA.
In addition, now, from abroad, you can buy combined plans that include: data (for all networks), minutes for national and international calls and SMS. Find out all the details here
