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

It was all brilliant! The best part of Cuba is the constant and superb music everywhere.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Cuba is expensive! The queue at the airport for currency exchange is very long. WiFi access is by the hour. You need a card for each hour (easily obtained but go to an official outlet - cost per card is 80p). The food in Cuba is very basic. Stay in HomeStays, not hotels. Go in one American car! Have a Daiquiri every day!

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

Yes.

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

Brillant!!

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

We enjoyed all the places we went to but... We loved Havana - it's a vibrant place with live music on every street corner and in every bar. Wandering around the streets in old Havana both during the day and in the evening was great and there is lots to see -lovely squares, colonial buildings, palaces, museums, cathedral, harbour plenty of old American cars........ It was good just to find a cafe or bar and watch the world go by. We enjoyed staying with Basita in Vinales and we loved exploring Trinidad

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Do some research before you decide where in Cuba you want to go. With hind sight, we would have had longer in Havana and probably Trinidad. Although the beach we went to was lovely, if we had realised where it was we would have chosen something different.

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

It's difficult to know, but presumably our stays in Vinales and Trinidad in Casas Particulares would benefit the people whose houses we stayed in. We also used a number of Paladares -eating places run by families in their homes

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

We found Cuba to be a most interesting destination. We learned a little more about its complicated political and social history, mainly from our guides who were excellent. I do hope that the people in charge in the future will find ways of welcoming tourists that don't spoil the atmosphere and uniqueness of the country
