    • 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?

      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

    • Accessing money in Cuba

      Cuba Aug 28, 2016 at 7:49 PM

      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?

      Cayo Largo DIY Fishing Ban

      Cayo Largo Apr 5, 2009 at 5:05 AM

      There is now a complete Do it Yourself fishing Ban on Cayo Largo.

      There have been reports of harassment, equipment confiscation and fines for people caught fishing from shore.

      The culprit is the Avalon Fishing Club who has bought exclusive fishing rights to the whole area.

      You can fish with them for3000 to5000 for week

      Don't go to Cayo Largo if you want to fish for fun

    • Stray Dogs?

      Cayo Largo Jul 23, 2008 at 9:07 PM

      I have been to other Caribbean destinations where there are stray dogs, being an animal lover this was hard for me to see and spent my whole vacation feeding them. Being as this is an island i was hoping there would be no stray dogs or at least a lot less. has anyone who has been there seen stray dogs around?

      Getting there by boat

      Cayo Largo Sep 17, 2007 at 2:33 AM

      Dear all,
      is there another possibility to get to Cayo Largo except by plane from Havana or Varadero? We travel by car during the first week in Cuba and end up in Cienfuegos. We would like to drop the car there and get on a boat to Cayo Largo in order to avoid driving back to Havana and getting on a plane.
      Any ideas? Even Lonely Planet speaks about planes only...
      Thanks and cheers!

    • how to get there

      Cayo Largo Mar 26, 2006 at 1:33 AM

      how can I get to cayo largo? are there flights leaving from havana or trinidad? hoow much does it cost to get there? is it possible to find casa particular in this island or it's a place only for package tourists? I'm a backpacker. I've only found a few all inclusive hotels on the net, the rates are about 100 CUC a day, too expensive for me.
