      Hi, does anybody know how to get from Morón to Cayo Coco? I didn't find any car rentals in Morón or bus services. Is it possible to hire someone to take us there? And how to come back from the island if we don't have a car? We would like to go there at February 18. Thanks for any tips!

      Vintage taxi fares for long distances

      by GroundhogDave Online Now Jan 9, 2014 at 2:04 PM

      I'm looking for some information on the prices of hiring vintage American taxis (maquinas/yank tanks) to go from city to city across Cuba. Can anyone give me examples of fares they have paid for taking trips greater than 100km?

      I know this isn't the cheapest or most effective way of travelling across Cuba. I know buses and trains are cheaper, but this is for a specific project, so I'm not interested in travelling by bus or train or renting a late model Asian/Euro rental car.

      I'm not expecting AC, a comfortable ride or a reliable vehicle. I'm a vintage car enthusiast and while the cars I drive look great, they are unreliable headaches that cause me great amounts of stress. So I definitely know what I am getting myself into :)

      Thanks for your help!

    • Booking a hotel in Cuba

      by selina22 Online Now Dec 5, 2013 at 12:40 PM

      When already in Cuba having a room for whole stay, I would like to know if it is possible to call and book an other room for one night stay in another city (and is it maybe the most expensive way comparing to advance booking)? We would not like to do that beforehand, not knowing when making those trips.... I have understood by internet it is impossible while alreaydy in Cuba?

      Money in Cuba

      by Oranier Online Now Oct 10, 2013 at 2:58 AM

      Can one draw money at ATMs somewhere in Cuba or do you have to take all your money with you?
      I heard there are two currencies, one for locals and one for tourists, and also a parallel price system. Is this true and how does it work?
      Is ii advisable to take dollars or euros with you to change into Cuban money? Which one is prefered by money changers? Can you change money in the street or only at banks?

      by Elgreco77 Online Now Aug 27, 2013 at 1:53 AM

      Hi, can anyone advise on the road conditions and driving times please? I'm getting mixed reports. We have 4 spare days from Holguin and would like to see a bit of the Eastern side. We've previously done the west from Trinidad to Pinar del Rio and hired a car before. If you think it's too far and not worth the trip where would you recommend instead? It'll be late December.

      Hey! I am travelling to Cuba next week and will be travelling for 3.5 weeks. I will start in Havana and then work my way East around the island.
      I know that they use Cuban Convertible Pesos in Cuba.
      I am from Ireland and have an Irish Credit card, Debit card and Euro currency.
      Can I reliably use ATM's in Havana & Cuba in general?
      Where are the easiest places to withdraw/convert currency?
      Do I need to bring any Euros/Dollars with me?

      Thank you so much!

      Getting around

      by sha55 Online Now Dec 10, 2012 at 7:16 AM

      My partner and I want to visit Cuba in February 2013, from the UK.
      We would obviously like to spend time in Havana and would also like to take in Trinidad and hopefully Santiago, with some beaches along the way.
      We have at least two weeks to do this.
      My problem is I have spinal difficulties and cannot sit for long periods of time especially on bumpy cars or buses.
      We were thinking about taxi so we could get out and stretch our legs etc but have no idea how ,who etc.
      anyone have any experience of this? Know anyone they can trust? A tailor made holiday looks too pricey but we wonder if there was another safe more economical way of doing it?
      Any replies would be much appreciated. Oh also comfortable mid priced hotels.
      Many thanks

We all like swimming and fairly active holidays as well as good food and plenty of sun bathing. I thought over the Christmas peroid would be good as it seems that it is outwith the hurricane season or Easter time. Any suggestions re places to stay, things to do, things not to do and the best time to go would be appreciated.

      Has anyone stayed at this resort?
      I'm presuming we check out at noon on the Thursday but our flight isn't until past 10 pm. Are they good with holding onto the bags until departure time? Do you still get fed dinner that day?

      Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
