Our trip was a great adventure, mixing guided travel with self guiding was a perfect recommendation. Here is some honest feedback. First trip in old timer car in Havanna: car and guide did not turn up, our lovely hostess organised a car and we then had to share a guide with another party which meant we did not get Such an informed trip as she was sat in the other car for half the time. However, hats off to them for sorting something out for us which we greatly enjoyed despite the delayed start. I would not recommend La Vittoria Casa in Vinales. We had a most sullen and awkward stay and felt very much that they did not want us in their house. The room was clean but not cleaned whilst we stayed, which was in stark contrast to all the other Casa’s that cleaned daily and were fabulous in their individual welcomes. We wished we had more time in Playa Giron, Duniel our host was brilliant and caught fish each day and cooked it for our supper, totally recommend this Casa. You should also recommend visiting Rubens bar/shack on Coco beach for the warmest of Cuban welcomes and the best cocktails. Theresa y Rudolpho Casa in Trinidad was lovely with beautiful calm welcome and serene courtyard to relax in. Excellent local info from them. Ouedja family Casa in Verahado was such a warm and fun welcome, lots of help and info and very comfortable and spotless room and bathroom. The owners are just delightful and made our stay delightful. National park trip in Playa Giron with swimming was brilliant, saw lots of wildlife and guide was excellent. Tobacco farm and cooking trip in Vinales really excellent and very informative. Bictaxi tour of Trinidad very informative and was good to take a peek into the daily living of Cubans. Our guide was very professional and sings really well too!
Good information, really useful app
Would be very useful to have address of all bars/restaurants/museums you recommend rather than just map location on app, as sometimes hard to get there or give taxi instructions.
The guides were all really excellent. The drivers were good but we did feel quite shaken around on the long journey’s by the cars. Horse, bike and scooter taxi’s brilliant.
