Wow, how exciting!  I have a friend who is Cuban who goes back often and was going to IM him a link but he’s not online.   Frown

I have a friend who went via Toronto and said they loved it, and the Cubans really want US visitors. I suggested it to DH but he wasn’t too keen on the idea. He said we could go if I get an Italian passport.

I’ve been, I’ve been, I’ve been!! 

I went in 2004 for 10 days when I was doing a semester abroad in Costa Rica.  I spent 5 days in Veradero ,which has probably the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen.  The water is totally clear and it has white sand beaches.  The hotel we stayed in was ok, nothing extravagant but totally acceptable, and it was all-inclusive so we took advantage of the constant access to mojitos 🙂

Then we spent another 4 days in Havana, which was an amazing city in the ’30s and ’40s and is now a strange mix of falling apart old buildings and wierd, 60’s style communist housing…

It was honestly one of the coolest trips I’ve ever been on, based on the fact that it is like a living museum and really feels like you’re going back in time…And the beaches are glorious and almost all the tourists are european, which adds to the atmosphere…

PM if you want to hear more but you guys should GO! 🙂

Wow this sounds like an adventure I’d love to have…too bad FI is a police officer and he’ll lose his job if he travels to Cuba.
