My wife and I are planning a short trip with our 1 year old son to Cuba. Could you please advise of any nice places to go and relax? We are not looking for over the top adventures and just to get away from the Canadian winter and relax in the sun for a bit.

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?
I understand that a type of visa/tarjeta de turista is required for Cuba, is this included in the airfare if I buy it online with Cubana Air? If not, how do I get one? I have an Australian passport but will be travelling from Mexico.

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!

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?
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.
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.
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

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 ?
