Does the Hotel Raquel have any kosher food?
Does the butcher shop sell anything other than meat?

I dont believe so. And I dont know if you are able to buy from the butcher (you might need a ration card or something).
And AFAIK the butcher is usually not open.

Dont try to buy kosher food there, if anything bring way more than you need and give it to the jews there.
I'm not who you think I am.

Will be in Feb in Miami for 10 days. Thinking of taking a one day tour of Havanna with my wife and kids (age 1-14)
I see that I can fly early in morning, that will get me in at 08:00am and leave 9pm with aa (booking with avios)
It would make it much easier traveling without luggage and not having to stay over night
Do you think I can see enough of the jewish and regular sights in a day?
Any other tips you can give me before planning such a crazy daytrip :-)

I'm also trying to find out current requirements. Seems you can visit under the "Support of Cuban People" category but I'm trying to find out if you need any sort of proof for that. If not, it's basically same requirements as pre-Trump sanctions. Some travel via a transit country to avoid that but if it's not necessary I would fly direct from USA.
