  1. With all the discussion about the difficulty in finding an exit from the port, can anyone put together a free hand map to share?
  2. are there return taxis on the back street frequently or could there be a long wait?
  3. Has anyone been to Mahahual while 2 ships are in port? What is the taxi wait and street scene like?
  4. Are taxis easy to get for the return trip to the port?
  5. I have eaten sea turtle a lot growing up as it was legal then. Popular item in Miami and the keys. Depending on the cut and preparation it can taste like veal or a good cut of steak. Last time I ate it was in 85 on a trip to Grand Cayman.
  6. I think that is the best reply ever. Growing up in Miami and the Keys from the mid 40's I agree.
  7. My wife and I wil be in George Town on a cruise in November and I would like to get some recommendations on restaurants near the port that serve turtle steak. Thanks

    Cancelled my 11-16-19 Havana cruise. Hoped there would be some movement but looks not. Booked 11-17-19 Allure w caribbean. Planning a fly trip.to Havana in Feb 20
  10. See my reply to a post above.
  11. Took the Jolly Roger on a Carnival cruise in 2015. It was a really good excursion. Ample water time, good lunch, lots of drinks and a really interesting boat trip along the shore of French Harbor. Lasted longer than advertised and was a great value for the $. The crew was outstanding in pointing out interesting things. If you are a snorkeler take your own gear. The fins they provide are small and really limber making you work in the current.
  12. How clean were the restrooms?
  13. Does anyone have recent experience in booking a casa particular in Havana thru airbnb? Good or bad?

    Plan B!

    Are you booking Villa Cloty? If so I need a direct email for them.

    Great, I plan on flying sw next February. I would apprreciate learning of your booking experience with visa and required insurance process and cost.

    Plan B!

    I start with a 3rd party site then find the prooerty website or email and communicate directly with the owner. Not sure if I will book direct or 3rd party. Depends on cancellation policy.

    Plan B!

    I have not done this yet but will in early 2020. International flights come in to terminal 3 which has cadecas on both floors. I am planning to do 2 days in Havana and 2 days in Guanabo. Villa Cloty in Guanabo and unsure on Havana yet but there are lots of choices. Will leave from fll on southwest and return the same. Liberal baggage and cancellation policies. Found many casa particulars at or under 50 cuc. Many look nice below that but location to havana vieja is a considerstiom

    Plan B!

    If you are going to the Miami area already look at South West flights out of FLL. Liberal baggage allowances and good prices. Book a casa paticular in Vedado and have fun.
  19. I think its time to utilize your research as I am. Do a little more redearch on cada paticulares and fly to Havana. Stiil a lot of flights to Havana from Florida. I'm starting my new reseatch now.
  20. The Cubans are poor do to the Gov't spending $ to help Venezuela and other countries. To the Cuban Gov't the citizens are an annoyance.

    Thanks to all
  22. I went to Havana last year as an exploratory trip. Booked my next cruise there as soon as I got home. Since Nov 18 I have been researching like crazy for our next trip. If it doesn't open up soon, prob fly and stay in Vedado and utilize my research
