Re: Cuba
Oh, alright.

First went there in 2000.

Great place, it has changed a lot since then.

One of my favourite museums in the word - the Museum of the Revolution. Extraordinary displays. Don't believe much of what you read in there, though. Pure propaganda. Came out laughing my head off!

Trinidad de Cuba is beautiful - Unesco protected old Spanish colonial town on the Caribbean coast. Swim in the warm waters, dive for your dinner.

Great bars and music in most towns, but I'm sure it has all changed enormously. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Re: Cuba
I would spend as little time in places like varadro as is humanly possible.

Go to Havana and stay there. Go to Vinales and stay there for one night. Lnow its a lobg way but Trinidad deserves at least two nights. If youre staying longer go to Santiago, the black capital of Cuba.

Re: Cuba
Amazing place, best beaches I’ve seen , lovely people , great culture but the foods a bit wonky. Unless it’s the freshly caught and cooked lobster of course.

Gav said Cuba was good for single guys.

What does that mean in reality?

Re: Cuba
You tiresome plebian.

Havana, Trinidad, Vinales. Do those three at the very least. Ive also heard some good things about Santiago, but that's a long way from Havana.

Re: Cuba
Went to Holguin a few years ago, had a great time but wouldn't rush back. Food wasn't great but I guess they cant import much, but they had a beer called Buccanero which blew your bollocks off. I gave one of the barmen a tip on the first day and he made sure we were looked after from that point onwards, on our second to last day it was his day off so he came and met us on the beach with his wife and kid, wearing a West Ham top and a Hammers beach towel that someone obviously gave him previously. I ended up giving him a few shirts and a pair of trainers that were honing after wearing them for two weeks and he acted like it was Christmas day.

I’m there at the end of Jan for joint birthday with the Mrs.

3 nights Havana + 7 Varadero....done zero research as Mrs sorted, but staying in somewhere called Royalton Hicacos Resort.

Looking forward to the Varadero bit and naturally the lack of Yanks.

Re: Cuba
I love Cuba. been several times. you must spend a few days in Habana as there is so much to see and it really is pretty safe as well.
last time the wife and i stayed at the former hilton hotel which during the revolution became fidels headquarters. revolution pictures on the walls and for a cigar smoker like myself, it was heaven sitting in the comfy armchairs drinking dark rum and sucking on good cigars.
heaven indeed.
dont forget to have a ride in some of those lovely old yank cars, especially the convertables.
enjoy the absence of gobby yanks all over the place as a previous poster wrote ( sorry i forget who it was), although you do get canadians there, like you do throughout the caribbean.

Best holiday I've ever had. Avoid the coast where all the mosquitoes are.

What does this have to do with West Ham anyway?
