review 25 Jan 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

I am particularly interested in the arts, so found these particular visits very rewarding: Las Terrazas community and artist collective; a visit to a live-in camp for young artists in several arts disciplines--dance, music and visual arts; and the community of Fusterlandia, built around the work of Fuster, which is a bit like Hundertwasser in Vienna. Also, the knowledge imparted by our guide of Cuba's history was very enlightening.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Have an open mind. Things are not necessarily as you might expect them to be. Much of Cuba is like the rest of the Caribbean and central America--the smells, the flora, the street life. Exchanging money is sometimes time consuming. (And bring toilet tissue.)

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We made every effort (with the guidance and assistance of our guide) to be sure that we were good travelers and that we promoted conservation whenever possible. We stayed in local homes and interacted with the very charming and hospitable people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a wonderful experience. I have had wonderful experiences all over the world, and this was definitely one of the best.
