It's about 40 minutes (driving) from Cayo Coco to Moron (on the mainland) and according to my leaflet it is 491 km from Cayo Coco to Havana.
The taxi told me its about 5 hours drive from Cayo Coco to Havana.
Sorry ... keep doing this ...LOL
Oops, sorry, what was I thinking, I had Havana on my mind.
What was probably meant is that the Tryp Peninsula in Varadero (not Cayo Coco) is located about 40 minutes from the airport.
I think that you are probably right and that the original poster has posted in the Cayo Coco forum and not the Varadero forum, which tended to mislead us all.
Have you booked your next trip or are you still looking for a good deal?
I actually did mean to post on this forum because I did want to know how far the tryp cayo coco was to varadero, on the sol melia site it says that the tryp cayo coco is 40 minutes to varadero but that more than likely means its by plane....
My apologiesd then.
Nothing booked yet, there just are no deals around. I'm monitoring a couple of dates late August where I know there are more than 9 seats available on the flights, but the prices continue to hold firm.
What with the credit crunch and I quote: 'The UK's annual rate of inflation rose to 4.4% in July, its highest level since records began in 1997' I really thought something might come my way but with these dates less than two weeks away there is no sign of a drop in price.
