CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

A great trip that covers so much of the island, be prepared for hours on the coach though!

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

What we liked: The people, forest walking especially in the Sierra Maestra to Fidel Castro's hideout, the old colonial architecture, and the multi-coloured houses and palaces. Transport - old cars, lorry buses, bullock carts, bicycle taxis, horse and cart taxis.No so good: Standard of plumbing: having to put all toilet paper in a bin rather than the toilet. No water at times to flush toilet or have a shower.  Water dripping from room ceiling - though compensated for by hotel management with a bottle of rum!!Lot of driving but the coach was comfortable and air conditioned and Ernesto our driver was an excellent driver and we did get to see a lot of the countryside.

A full-on journey through an extremely interesting country, visiting historic towns, beautiful coastlines and stunning mountain scenery, liberally sprinkled with tremendous local hospitality always accompanied by rum, music and dancing!

If you want an overview of the whole island, including insights into the fascinating history and culture, as well as sampling the laid back Cuban lifestyle of music, salsa dancing and mohitos, then this is the trip for you.

Be prepared for a tough couple of days travelling on arrival, after that it's great. It's a wonderful country and those changes really are starting to happen, my advice is go!

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

Cuba wasn't quite as I had expected. I didn't realise how big the island was, so there was a lot of time spent on the coach the first week, and how poor and run down many places are.  In retrospect, I might have just chosen the shorter tour and had a week relaxing on the beach and soaking up a bit more of the atmosphere in Havana. But I did love all the rum cocktails, we even had rum in the fruit juice drink at the rest stops en route, and we did see most of the island.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

You can't please all the people all the time, but this tour makes a good attempt at it.  A lot of mileage in order to cover as much as possible of this very interesting country, with a very good guide and driver in a fairly new, air-conditioned, comfortable Chinese bus.  The activities were good, we heard a lot of good Cuban music, most of the accomodation was good and the food very good (it appears to have improved a lot), especially in the paladares (private restaurants).  No complaints.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

It is the sum of the whole parts rather than any single aspect that makes this trip special. Witnessing how the island and its people have responded to Castro and the earlier colonial history is a real eye opener, and makes for a truly fascinating and rewarding experience.
