You'll love Cuba. I was there in 2016 and it was really interesting. But I only saw 1 British car, a newer Land rover, if I remember correctly. I don't know how you are planning on getting there, we went on a "mission" of course as the US still had pretty strict requirements for visas. We flew on a charter from Miami and if you are planning a similar route, be warned the luggage weight requirements are pretty strict, we would never have been able to get heavy front end parts there. You may also have trouble getting them through customs, but I don't know too much about that.

I have an opportunity to go to Cuba in the near future and have researched the British Car scene there and next to the Cadillacs and Buick Roadmasters left behind by the Mafia in 1959, and a bunch of Chevys, there are a few British Sports Cars in Cuba. They don’t get the inflow of British parts that the American parts get so I’m thinking of taking a few interchangeable parts amongst British cars such as tie rods, bearings, etc. that they might make use of (along with some new baseballs for the kids).
I know they are very creative in making those cars still run but I thought a few harder to get parts, that you just can’t take off the washing machine, might be nice.
I’ve heard suspension/steering parts are sought after due to the potholes ever present. So I have some Spitfire tie rods that might also fit MGs and some other such parts that might be interchangeable.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Maybe U-joints? I do have to take clothes so nothing too heavy please.
