Just back from CUBA, sharing photos with my TTOLs
      #1630264 - 02/06/15 10:07 AM (72.51.125.139)

I am responding somewhat to the homes now for rent in Cuba. We spent an amazing 8 nights there. Using an American guide for a "cultural trip", including Havana, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad. We cannot wait to go back.

Click on the links!
Enjoy!

The VW bus, like so many cars in Cuba, was revamped, renovated, etc., amazing for over 35 years old, worked like a charm (but no A/C), not too comfortable so I moved up next to Jorge, the driver. What a trip!

We had a US guy, Frank Reno, terrific, who organized everything. We left on a charter flight (large, reliable) from Miami. Also you can go from FT. Lauderdale. Write me directly with questions, anything I can answer, ok? joansoncijo@gmail.com

Thank you for posting! My hubby and I just looked at your pictures and enjoyed them very much. We had to look at some place warm on this ridiculously cold and windy morning. This looks like a fascinating trip and is now on our list.

Love the idea of the vintage cars. All Classics. Do you recall about the gas situation? Do they refine their own, or get it from where? How much was the gas? It seems the gas would have to be leaded since most of those cars were built (originally) before unleaded gas was made?

I love Cuba and heading back for my 7th trip in April to Guardalavaca. I went to Cayo Coco once but prefer this area. The people are warm and welcoming which the biggest reason for me to return.
But as much as I like there is no place like my BVI.
I'm glad you enjoyed it.
