Hi guys, I am looking into options on travelling from Varadero to Havana and back. Any tips or suggestions?
My wife and I will be travelling around the Carribean for a month in July on our honeymoon. We are looking to visit Cuba for at least a few days and I was just wondering where, how and if their were any safety considerations about Cuba that I should be aware of other than the obvious?
Hi 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
I hope to take my family to Cuba to celebrate several special birthdays. I have a 14 yr old and a 16 yr old son and a much older husband. Where do I start? 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. Thanks Anna
any advice for 2 women in their fifties visiting cuba, where to eat, dangers, money changing etc
Okay so now I'm excited. I've booked our trip to Club Kawama in Varadero for April 7th, returning April 14th. 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. Stay tuned for pics posted when we get back :D
Hi, we're planning a trip to Varedero Apr 9 and have never been to Cuba. Is there an 'unofficial' currency exchange where you might get more bang for your buck? What day trips are there to do in the area and how much do they cost? Any hotels to avoid? Looking at 3 star hotels on exitnow.ca. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello to all! Is there anybody who knows if there are flights from Santiago de Cuba to Montego Bay or Kingston? All replies greatly appreciated
We are planning to travel around Cuba by car and we have heard that until recently, US Dollars were generally acceptable as currency for anything, anywhere in Cuba. This appeas to have changed and now travellers are urged to use Euro or other currency instead (we are going from Italy), instead of dollars, especially outside the resort areas. Can anyone comment on this from recent experience? Will they accept Euros anywhere in Cuba? Thanks.
My time can be very flexible to go visiting Cuba in late Jan or any time in Feb. Just wondering if there happens to be any festival or any carnivals during that time? Also we'd stop in Mexico, so the same question in Mexico. thanks!
I have just booked for a "Pearl of the Caribbean" tour, six night's taking in Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Vinales Valley etc. Has anyone here done a similar tour, or can give any advice, or know of any "tip's and trick's" to make this trip evn better than it appears. Thanks Phil.
I am looking into booking a trip down south in late Jan/early Feb. Does anyone know what the weather is like in Cuba at that time? A few people have told me conditions are similar to Florida at that time. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks.
We stayed at the old Club Guardalavaca four times back in the 80's, when it was the only hotel there. Have been wintering in México for the last 14 years but would like to go back to Guardalavaca again this year. From the pictures it looks like this area has changed a lot since then, is it now part of the Club Amigo complex? Also, has anyone stayed for longer periods, say 3 or 4 weeks? Are accomodations available in private homes, such as a bed & breakfast type of a deal? Al
Can we use the Canadian dollar to buy the convertible peso ?? Does anyone know this for sure?? If so what is the exchange ?
We are visiting Cuba (Cayo Guillermo) in February 2005 to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary, I would be grateful if anyone has any tips about trips etc. Can we use a visa card when we are out there, I have conflictin reports that we can only use certain ones, I know you can't use American Express but have been told we can't use any MBNA cards. does anyone know if this is true. Also a couple of people have said we should take little presents out with us, things such as small soaps and pencils! Anyone know what the weather will be like and is there any problems with mosquitos?
I'm getting married in Cuba in April. What do I need to get together for this. I don't want to mess my wedding up by not getting a silly paper signed etc. Also, has anyone ever been to the club villa resort in varadero? How was it? I've never been to a hot country, what's the one thing I should definently bring there?
My partner and I are planning a 2 center trip to Cuba in February 2005, possibly spending 10 days in Havana and 10 days in Varadero. Is it worth spending this much time in Havana or will it be better spending more time at Varadero?
