      checking luggage

      Cuba Feb 3, 2017 at 3:38 PM

      we are flying into Havana Feb 18th. I have been told by one person not to check luggage as it can take 1-2 hours to get. My other friend went to cuba this summer and said it was really fast to get their luggage. Does anybody have feedback? Does it matter which airline? We were really hoping to bring an extra suite case to check full of school supplies to donate.

    • Visiting Santiago.

      by Fisher1961 Online Now Jan 31, 2014 at 3:40 PM

      Hi. We are staying in Guardalavaca in March and wondering the best way to get to Santiago. The bus seems to take a long time and from what I can see we will have to connect in Holguin. We did fancy hiring a car but people have mentioned the bad roads and parking in Santiago. We do want to stay overnight and usually enjoy exploring independently but it looks like an organised trip might be the easiest option. Does anyone know how much these excursions are? Alternatively would it be practical to hire a car and driver. Thanks.

      by gwedgie Online Now Sep 17, 2008 at 7:50 AM

      First time to Cuba, travelled the caribbean a bit. What can we expect at x-mas time? Do they close the store etc for a few days? Staying in the hotel part of club amigo atlantico, have heard to update to a villa? We are a fam of 4 and somewhat adventurist, so don't plan on spending much time in our rooms anyway. As long as they are clean. What can we expect for typical weather during this time? HOw do we get from our hotel back to the Holguin area for a day of shopping? Bus, taxi, bike, car rental? Is it better to find our own way to the dolphin area and book it ourselves? so many questions...would appreciate any info
      Thx from Canada

    • Running

      by Sammystar Online Now May 5, 2008 at 1:00 PM

      This might sound a little odd but I am a runner and am planning on taking my running shoes on holiday for a little early morning easy running.

      I have never been to cuba and wondered whether it would be safe for a lone female to run off the complex or whether I will have to be content with running laps of the hotel where I am staying, The Blau Costa Verde?

      If anyone could offer any insight that would be most appreciated.

      Looking to book a holiday to this area of Cuba during May 2006. Could anyone sugest any places of interest to visit whilst staying here? Had considered staying in Varadero so that we could visit Havana from there, but thought it too touristy, but also realise that Havana is too far away from this resort without making it a twin centre holiday.

      Any information would be gratefully received.

      Thanks in advance.
