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.

If you'd like to post travel related news items please post a couple of brief paragraphs with a link to the complete article.

Just returned from a 2 week cycling trip. I wanted to thank the thorn tree members who helped with our planning. We had a fabulous time. We have travelled to Cuba numerous times but always in the western end. The last time was a cycling trip 8 years ago and we found that we were constantly asked for money, our bikes, our inner tubes, etc. We have travelled in lots of other poor countries and were very turned off by this. So we waited 8 years and this year decided to go to the eastern end. I'm…

Hi folks.
Suggestions please to get from Camaguey to Trinidad without having to get up for the early 2:45 bus?
This must be an oft-asked question!

After reading many posts, I am planning on spending Friday-Sunday in Trinidad after leaving Vinales, and Havana for a few days. We won't be going until July, but I am want to pre-book a nice Casa. I am traveling with my young adult kids and I think they will love Trinidad for the music vibe.

I am hoping Cheersterry is online and can give me some advice or a sample itinerary for a weekend in Trinidad.

Thanks in advance

Hello to anyone that can help

I ran into a Cuban last night at a local restaurant. Polite but spoke very little english (I speak enough spanish to communicate although im not fluent) Next week he is crossing from canada to usa at peace bridge. He is here on a visitor visa visiting his Canadian Girlfriend. He is a dentist (not sure if that matters, he has all his transcripts and diploma with him). He is nervous to cross and could use any advice that can be given. I gave him my phone…

I have just finished THREE NIGHTS IN HAVANA: PIERRE TRUDEAU, FIDEL CASTRO, AND THE COLD WAR WORLD, by Robert Wright. At first I though, "Ah, this will be be a recap of post-Revolutionary Cuban history that I already know." But the focus--the difference between Canada's policies toward Cuba and those of the US--makes it particularly interesting to those who care about such things. And it's well-written. One reviewer wrote that it is "detailed but never dull, analytical but never pedantic. It is…
