    • Beach for kids

      Cuba Aug 15, 2016 at 2:35 PM

      We are a family of four, kids 3 and 6. We are planning a two week trip to Cuba in February. At least one of these weeks we would like to stay at a really nice beach. However we are having trouble finding something that matches our taste. Varadero seems too touristy for us with too many resorts. We would prefer a small hotel close to or by the beach and with a choice of local restaurants at walking distance. We are not looking for an all inclusive. We have looked at Cayo Largo, Cayo Santa Maria and Cayo Saetia. Any input would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    • Sol Palmeras or Sol Cayo Guillermo for my family?

      Cuba Aug 11, 2016 at 9:26 AM

      This August, I'm planning a vacation for my family (husband, myself and 2 kids 15 and 8) and I'm wondering which hotel would be more suitable for my family? I realize that Sol Palmeras and Sol Cayo Guillermo are totally different in terms of locations and layouts but any suggestions, please? Thank you!

    • Is there a problem yet with Cassa particular lot is getting overbooked?

      Cuba Aug 24, 2016 at 10:33 PM

      Last year I went and reserved my first Casa from abroad. From that point on, each Casa just hooked me up with the next as I traveled for two weeks. It was great and very flexible.

      Is this still possible or will I have to pre-book all my casas in advance from abroad in order to be sure I'll have a place to sleep?

    • Accessing money in Cuba

      Cuba Yesterday

      I'm departing for Cuba in a few weeks and I've been reading up on ways to access money and despite reading quite a few posts on various websites and forums I'm still having trouble getting a clear understanding of what I should do. Since I'm going for 10 days I don't really want to take enough cash to cover me as that would mean carrying >$1000 on me. So I have an Australian debit Mastercard from Bankwest which I understand might not work in ATMs but might work if I go inside a bank to withdraw cash. Obviously that would be a better option but I don't want to rely on it if it's not true. Has anyone had any recent experience about this issue?

      Recommendations need for traveling in Cuba for 2 weeks

      Cuba Aug 18, 2016 at 10:35 AM

      Dear VT’s friends & members,

      I need your help to organize a trip in Cuba for 2 weeks, in January 2017.
      We’re a group that want to travel around Cuba and to see the most spectacular things: old cities, historical monuments, local customs, restaurants, beaches, culture.
      So we need some recommendations about what to see and don’t miss, how to travel around, which places are good for staying more than 1-2 days, where to have accommodation (hotels or local house rent), etc.
      1. Is it possible and safe to rent a car and drive in Cuba?
      2. Are the roads in good conditions?
      3. It is better to take local transport buses between cities or to ask to the local tourist companies?
      4. What places do you recommend to don’t miss?
      5. Famous locations and monuments in Havana?
      Any other info will be highly appreciated!
      Thank you in advance for your kind answers.
      Best Regards! Gabriel

      I've read that tourists are sometimes picked up by immigration authorities in Ciego de Avila, Cuba for taking pictures, etc, and forced to sign a letter promising they wouldn't do what they were picked up for again. Has anyone had such experience or know what's actually going on?
