Understandably, politics may come up when people talk Cuba. We accept that and believe it's both naive and unhelpful to pretend it's not a part of travel and Cuban experience.
However, if you wish to start topics on Cuban or U.S. politics then you have come to the wrong place, as this is primarily a forum for travellers and locals to exchange advice and connect.

i'm thinking to go in june for a couple weeks. my first couple questions are:
a) will there be a need or benefit to book in advance? i will arrive to havana early in morning. unless there are great casas that fill up early, when i travel i usually prefer to walk around, find a general area that i like, then pop in a few places as i pass them by and pick the best. this question is for other cities as well. are there cities where i really should book in advance due to lack of vacancy?
If anyone is around and has any interest, you can see my exhibits and meet me in Cueto, Holguin and Holguin Cuidad in May and June.
Galería de Arte Municipal – Cueto, Holguín 5 – 30 May, 2016, the opening reception and introduction of the artist (really it is just me) is 2PM 5 May
Biblioteca Provincial "Alex Urquiola", Holguín 3 – 13 June, 2016, the opening reception and introduction of the artist (again, really just me) is 4PM 3 June
The exhibit is a series of my photographs and writings…
I have been trying to find the most cost efficient way to get from Havana airport to Varadero. We arrive at like 1:30pm. I have seen on http://www.taxivinalescuba.com it is $95. Is this pretty much the going rate or can i get a better deal on a taxi when we arrive at the airport with some bargaining?
We do not want to go through Havana city (Viazul).
Is there any other options direct from the airport? Charter buses etc?
Thanks in advance
Hey everyone! Off to Cuba in a week. I hope I didn't miss an updated thread on the viazul buses. The last I read from a couple months ago that they are pretty full. Is this still the case? Are online prebokings necessary? We are kind of on a tight schedule somewhat.
I even see various buses from Havana to varadero for example are full when trying to book online.
Any information would be great. Thanks in advance.
thanks for reading.
I have been checking hundreds of forum, travel books, topics...
I have only 11 days available to visit Cuba. I am ready not to sleep for 10 days, renting a car (I read it's better to rent it from here, right?) and flying around the island (is it possible I do not find any flights option to fly to Cayo Largo? just solwayscuba.com, but they expect you to have an hotel in habana and Cayo Largo, otherwise, no solutions available).
I usually try to find the less…
