Is anyone travelling from Toronto to Varadero May/June 2013?
Hi, I am planning to go to Cuba for my honeymoon. We plan to spend 4 nights in Havana & 6 nights in Varadero in May 2013.
1> In Havana, whats better in terms of quality & location between Iberostar Parque & Nacional De Cuba ?
2> Which is the ideal resort in Varadero - lots of choices but can't decide eg. Paradisus Princessa Del Mar, Iberostar Varadero etc.
Please advise. Any additional tips would be great. Thanks

i finally did it, i.e. i booked my flight to go to CUBA for the holidays. i will be leaving Montreal to VARADERO on DECEMBER 21 (arriving at 9pm) and returning to Montreal from VARADERO on JANUARY 5 (leaving at 12h25pm). i am planning on staying in 'CASAS PARTICULARES' in VARADERO on the first 2 nights (december 21 and december 22) and on the last 2 nights (january 3 and january 4) because of my flights. SO, for the other 11 nights, can i wait until i get there to book the rooms? i have not planned everything yet, but i was thinking of going to the west to do some biking, maybe going to Trinidad. also going to the playas del este. and i thought of spending DECEMBER 31 in LA HAVANA. does that seem like a good plan? thanks in advance for your advice.

If anyone is travelling to Varadero in the next while from the Toronto area please let me know. My Cuban friends are in desparate need of cloth diapers and I would like to send them before our next trip in March (you know how fast babies grow). In turn for taking this relatively light package, the drop off place is in the centre of town at one of the best restaurants to eat in (where my friend is the chef). I'm happy to provide the introductions. Cheers and happy travels...
I am hoping to go with my family (us parents + 2 tweens) during the end of December. Is the sea water warm enough to stay in the water for an hour or so, or is it stay in the pool while watching the sea? I've heard Florida sea water is cold during this time of the year, so I am trying to lower my expectations.
