Cuba Trip

Just back from three weeks in Cuba. I loved it. Hopefully will go back next year. Voyhavana, on this forum recommended his friend Jorge as someone who could help with accommodation etc. I contacted him and he was fantastic. He organised casas for me ,each one better than the last. He was also always available by phone with help and advice. It made my trip much easier and I would recommend anyone going to Cuba with any concerns about accommodation, travel arrangements or indeed anything Cuban to get in touch with Jorge. It will make your trip a much happier experience. (jorgeguide2004@yahoo.es)

Hi Peter:

How is the weather in Ireland these days? Over here still sunny and warm though it is refreshing a bit.

I am very happy to know that you had a wonderful trip. It is always a pleasure to introduce travelers to our wonderful country through our most treasured resource: our people. Jorge did mention to me you are a very nice guy as well. Hopefull we meet next time.

Eight degrees with clear skies. Slightly cooler than Cuba !

Yes, the people i met around Cuba were wonderful. I had heard that i would be constantly harrassed by hustlers of one kind or another but I've travelled in many third world countries where it was much worse. It is understandable where you have poverty that people will always try to make a few bob from tourists any way they can. A simple 'no' (or sometimes 'yes') was always enough to stop it. It adds to the experience but really was only a small part of a much greater experience. Can't wait to go back.
