I'd love to observe some flamingos during my visit in Cuba in late December and early January.
Which places do you recommend? My guide book mentions Ciénaga de Zapata and Refugio de Fauna Silvestre Río Máximo, but are there others?
We plan to go from Santiago de Cuba wetsward until we reach Havana, so all places between these cities could be visited, so I'd appreciate any advise or hints.
Unfortunately we do not have plenty of time, so I'd be especially curious wether there are some spots, which would not make it necessary to sacrifie a whole day (as for Ciénaga de Zapata) and which are geographically near the main tourist sights.
Was checking pictures on Trip Advisor and someone posted one of a animal he called Black Bull. Is there such a thing as he said only comes out at night and looked about the size of a cat. Was so dark you could not make it out. Tried to Google it but no luck. He said they were harmless. Help.
Are there any reliable sites, where I can book online a transfer from Varadero airport to Havanna in advance? I'll arrive too late to catch a public bus and I do not want to waste a night in Varadero...
I realize, that there are other possibilities like persuading official hotel busses or private transfer, but we want to go secure, so we tend to bite the bullett and pay the approximated USD 90,00 for an governmental taxi...
We'll rent a car and our planned trip will go from Santiago de Cuba via Bayamo to Las Tunas. We'd curious to visit the landscape of Sierra Maestre. Do we get impressions by simply drive through? Or is it necessary to take a tour from Villa Islazul de Santo Domingo for instance to Commandancia General de la Plata? What a about a lmirador to spot Pico Turquino?
If simply driving through is not possible or not satisfactory enough, we deliberate to make a day tour to Gran Parque National Sierra Maestra.To climb up Pico Turquino is certainly too exhausting for us but a tour to Commandancia general de la Plata could be doable. How long does it take? Where and at which time we'd have to start? Or are there any other recommendable day tours?
Although Cuba is malaria-free there are some reports of Chikungunya and Dengue. So do you think a mosquito net is necessary for individual travel during christmas season?
I posted this question in the Santiago-forum, but I plan to visit the wohle island...
I'm going to Cuba with my friend on Friday. I haven't booked anything apart from the planes ticket yet. We were thinkg about spending the first five days in Havana, and the remaining five in Varadero.
We haven't booked the accommodations yet, so I just wanted to know if you had any good addresses to recommend :)
Thank you, Romain
