      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.

    • Kid-friendly off-resort place to eat, drink & hear live Cuban music?

      Holguín May 31, 2015 at 8:00 AM

      We'll be travelling with our two year old to Holguin (we're staying at Blau Costa Verde if that helps) and we are interested in checking out local stuff off-resort to experience Cuban life. Are there any suggestions for places that are ok to bring kids where we can relax and listen to amazing live Cuban music while eating local fare and enjoying some drinks? Is live music more of an evening thing than a day thing? We're ok with being off resort into the evening if that's the case (and if it is safe?) but wonder if there a rule/law about having kids (even well-behaved ones!) in restaurants/bars in general and/or after a certain hour (asking because there is in Toronto, Ontario). Thanks for any tips/advice in advance! :)

    • Visiting Santiago.

      Guardalavaca 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.

      Getting from the Airport to the Hotel

      Holguín Dec 11, 2013 at 5:28 AM

      So I've booked a flight into Holguin without getting a package deal, which means that there will be no nice comfortable tour bus waiting for me to take me to Guardalavaca. Different websites tell me different lengths of time it will take to get me there (45 minutes - 1.5 hours), and so I still can't decide if it's better for me to just take a cab, or find some other way. Does anyone know if there is a bus terminal or something in Holguin city where I can purchase a ticket to get me to the coast? Or is it better for me to just take the plunge and pay what I feel is a very high price for a taxi? -Lulu

    • Up to date 2013 2 wheel travel around the country?

      Holguín Sep 29, 2013 at 6:37 AM

      after 40 years of riding motor bikes over most of Europe and North Africa I would like to rent a a small bike this Xmas to see a bit of Cuba.Trouble is that most stories I have read seem to be out of date! So is it possible to rent say a 200cc bike - Morocco is full of Chinese Honda -copies called Dockers.Have they got to Cuba yet?
      mopeds? well ok but really they are too small ,and have weak brakes to be effective so I think are more dangerous than a proper bike.
      so any up to date info please - and as a country boy i don't want to be in cities much so thinking south side of the island
