Reviews for Cuba small group holiday, 9 days


review 2 Apr 2016

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

The most memorable aspect of our vacation was the devastating effect on Cuba of 60 years of sanctions and 'socialism'. The country is about to welcome large number of tourists and it is not ready. Havana international airport is chaotic: on our last day it had run out of water so the toilets weren't flushing, run out of sterling so we had to accept euros, and possibly ran out of electricity as the air con was off.

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

Tips. Take your own toilet paper, sink plug, air freshener, snack bars and insect repellant. If you struggle with humid heat or have any physical limitations, don't go.

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

We contributed to the local economy

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

This was not a vacation, it was a fascinating but demanding fact-finding expedition. There were 20 people in our group which was rather too many.
