Cuba with two young children (6 and 1) - crazy?Hi there,
My wife and I are considering a trip to Cuba in late October with our two young girls - aged 6 and 1. I've been to some pretty off-beat places so I've got a reasonable idea of what to expect but are there any opinions? Crazy or inspired?
One week duration and probably focused on Havana. Definitely not looking for a "resort" holiday.

3As long as you are willing to cope with the some difficulties.
daffmeister - for only one week, I assume you will bring with you everything that the little one needs.
orutrango - for four weeks, remember that it is not always easy to find (for example) nappies or the right size. Are you planning to stay in one place or travel around ?

5#4 I'm sure you know how to travel with your children but Cuba is different than anywhere you have been I imagine. At certain times there can be shortages of anything. Diapers, milk, toilet paper, tooth paste, you name it. If you stay around Havana that is less likely but the farther away you get the harder it may become. Bring what you can and stock up on what you need when you find it.

6In Havana there are several places you can go with children, Parque Lenin, Circus on the 5th avenue, the Dolphin Aquarium, the beaches and pools in some the most luxery hotels. Havana is not really made for prams, expect to carry the small child if you wish to do walking in the streets.
Children are adored in Cuba, you will be surprised. There are more than 100 000 born every year and they are healthy like children in North America and Western Europe. The main thing to worry about is to buy bottled drinking water, proper cooked food and the heat. But one week is very short to learn to familiarize yourselves where to buy stuff and eat out, I think.
