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 received a letter from my Aussie daughter that fares on this cruise reached as high as $9000. Hard to believe, even for first class. That's for one week, I think.
My boyfriend and I (both in our early 20s) will be travelling to Cuba in June and we want to travel round the island for our trip. Currently we have this itinerary planned:
Fly to Havana from UK arrive in the evening (stay 4 nights)
Playa Giron (or Playa Larga, which is better?) (2 nights)
Trinidad (3 nights)
Camaguey (2 nights)
Baracoa (2 nights)
Santiago de Cuba (3 nights)
fly to Havana (1 night)
Fly from Havana to UK
We plan to use the buses between towns, I understand the bus from Camaguey…
There are a couple of really good independent tours offered by local Cuban tour companies that I've made inquiries about by email but I haven't yet had a reply. One was a month ago, one was a week ago. I imagine they are quite busy but how long should I wait? Should I try phoning instead?
My friend Liv and I spent February in Cuba. Two weeks into that trip--about 19Feb--I posted Cuba Trip Report, Part 1, which was a text-only presentation. Part 2 is a collection of annotated photos, with a minimum of text accompaniment.
I hope you enjoy it.
Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I will be in Cuba from August 11-22. We fly into Havana and will then drive down to Santiago de Cuba (probably with a "backtrack" to the Vinales area as well). We have a 4x4 vehicle rented and are ready to really see the country! We are the type that like to be on the go constantly, seeing as much as we can. That said, what are some off the beaten path places we should definitely check out? Seriously, we're up for just about anything there is to see or do that is…
we are an Austrian couple (34 and 32) and traveling to Cuba the following weekend (07.05.2016). After 3 days in Havana we would like to travel on to Viñales. We ran late, so there are no more rental cars available. Is anyone traveling on this route on the 10th May and would like to give us a ride? Of course we can share the cost for the car!
Thanks and safe travels!
I am considering a 2-3 week cycling trip in Cuba this July. Before I get comments about it, I'm not worried about the heat, I've done it many times in summer in places like Greece, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Africa, Colombia and it doesn't bother me much. I'm interested to know if anyone has tried the train with a bike from Havana to Santiago de Cuba since I would like to start from there and zig zag my way back to Havana avoiding the autopista as much as possible. Would Viazul be a better…
