The Best Authentic Cuban Experience
My good friend Jon Barr decided to spend the holidays in Cuba. He loved Havana and even took a trip to Trinidad. He has some great videos up on YouTube. He used the Real Havana guidebook and really got an authentic Cuban experience. Check out his videos!
How To Take Communal Taxis (Colectivos) in Cuba
Jon took taxis to get around Havana. One of the most common questions I get is, “How do I take a colectivo taxi, like a local, in Havana?” Well, Jon used some of the info in the Real Havana guidebook and with a bit of practice he was hailing taxis and moving around Havana with ease. And the taxi rides are very cheap too, costing only 20 pesos Moneda Nacional (less than $1 USD for a taxi ride across the city).

Tips on Exploring Trinidad and Taking a Horseback tour
Jon also took an amazing trip to the small Cuban town of Trinidad, located about 4 hours east of Havana. He took a horseback ride tour of the mountains surrounding the city and got to explore some beautiful lagoons and swim areas.
