      Flamingo watching

      Cienfuegos Dec 7, 2014 at 5:12 AM

      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.

      Are shuttles/buses equipped for an infant car seat (21 months)? Do they provide infant car seats? If we bring a car seat, can we install it on the shuttle or bus?

      Transfer from Varadero to Havanna needed

      Varadero Nov 26, 2014 at 11:36 AM

      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...

      Gran Parque National Sierra Maestra and Commandancia general de la Plata

      Bayamo Dec 7, 2014 at 5:23 AM

      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?

      Mosquito net needed in Cuba?

      Santiago de Cuba Nov 26, 2014 at 11:32 AM

      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...

      DECEMBER 2012 AND JANUARY 2013 IN CUBA!

      by Suzanne_M Online Now Nov 18, 2012 at 10:56 AM

      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.

      Help! Canadian left films in Vinales. Can you return them for me?

      by Cloudwlkr Online Now Jul 7, 2003 at 10:50 PM

      Help! I left my film in Vinales! Can you mail them to me? Can you help me? My hosts in Cuba said they could mail the films back to me, but apparently this is not permitted by the government. Disappointing to say the least. I'd be very greatful if someone could visit the casa I left the films at, take them out of Cuba, and then mail them back to me in Canada. If you're worried about the films really being films, you could develop them there, and send the negatives (and prints) to me. I am willing to pay for the cost of shipping (and developing if needed) and a reward for their safe return. They contain many great memories of Cuba! If you need a place to stay in Vinales, the place where I left the films was very clean, private, and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly! I can say honestly that they provided the best food that I had on my whole trip! The casa was: SR Herbierto Botin Gonzales y Sra Marisol Delgado Garcia. Calle Camilo Cienfuegos #20 Vinales CP 22400 Provincial de Pinar del Rio You can phone ahead and make arrangements through Herbierto's mother at: Sra Blanca Gonzalez Naveda Calle Salvador Sisnero Interior Edificio Colonial No. 2 Apt0. No. 12 Vinales, Pinar del Rio Detras del la Policlinica Tele: Country Code: 53 Area Code: 8 Phone Number: 9-33-19 Sra Blanca is the one I've been in contact with regarding the films. Again, if you can help I'll be eternally grateful.
