Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is an increasing problem in the Caribbean. We investigated the molecular epidemiology of MRSA isolates on Cuba. The predominant clone was of the spa type t149, followed by community-associated MRSA USA300. We report the first molecular typing results of MRSA isolates from Cuba.
