Hi Mario I would just like to let you know that the taxi driver was not booked that’s why he didn’t turn up , I don’t think that was your fault but we went directly to exit after picking up our luggage and we went round for ages there was no one with my name on a board !! When I went to get cash my wife wIted with luggage at exit were every one else was being met no one showed so I guess this is down to a member of your staff . I’m pleased you have removed the Casa in Havana from your list I am confident you did make the reservation and it was owner who was very evasive with us it was only when I got your guide book out and said look we booked with you via Mario that she rang Claudia . The Taxi that picked us up to take us to Guidos Casa wS not a taxi but a friend of Guidos with a very small old fiat it was even big enough for our luggage but it got us there nice old chap i used him again when we left and paid him to take us to the Viazul station . With regards to Trinidad and the Casa booking there well I’m puzzled about that one however it was the best we stayed in and her cooking was great we would like to return there at some time in future . So overall we had some great times and some hairy scary ones !! It’s worse when you been travelling for 12 hours and very tired but we learnt a lot and hopefully it will stand us in good stead for future trips thanks again for your advice and tips Kevin .b12kjcParticipantMay 5, 2016 at 7:05 amPost count: 3
Hi. As I thought with playa Larga I think we will take it off our tour , and head straight down to Trinidad for a few days and then work our way back up to Havana we love the national parks and were hoping that they won’t be to bad for mozzys in day and so staying in town or city evenings should be ok with some repellant we saw some pictures of people litter lily eaten alive and it was enough to put us of going to Cuba all together ! But we want to experience all the good things especially Havana the beaches and music so we still want to go . Just one last question as we are staying in Vinales after Havana the next stop was to be Trinidad it’s a heck of a long journey down if we don’t stop in Larga do you have a suggestion to break journey thanks Mario am just waiting on delivery of paperback version of your guide so we don’t have to rely on the kindle being charged thanks again Kevinb12kjcParticipantMay 4, 2016 at 5:22 pmPost count: 3
Hi thanks for the advice , I suppose we get used to the English way of Saturday night is big night out in the week people are working so not so much happens . We think we have our tour sorted and will buy flights this week ,as we don’t live anywhere near London we hav to book early to get a sensible price from our local airport via Amsterdam 1 hour Klm . So thanks for your book and the YouTube videos keep updating if you can we will check regularly befor we travel . Ps. You probably covere this but the dreaded Mosquito not Mojito we like them ! But we here story’s of som people getting horrendous bites all over at some locations not in city’s ie Playa Larga and some island beaches what’s your experience please. Regards Kevin.
