    So, I do not think there are any other Cuba brides out there, but if there are, please drop me a line and we can chat. I have not picked a resort yet, but I am pretty sure its going to be in Holguin. I am thinking Playa Pesquaro. Any help in making up my mind would be great.

      I am not getting married in Cuba, but I have heard great things about weddings in Cuba in general. It is apprently very hassel free and professional. Cuba is a beutiful country, I have been there over 10 times and would go back again.
      Best of luck!

      Jules, I am from the US and obviously only know bad things about Cuba, however my only advice would be that with Fidel possibly being very sick, a change in power might interupt some services there, consider the political state of the country. But otherwise I am jealous, Edyta's pictures of her trip there looked so fun I bet you will have a blast, and us American girls don't even have that option.

            I love Cuba, so its a good choice, not my first, but a good one.

            I am not worried about what would happen with Castro, they need tourists, they are a poor country, so, they would never let anything happen to that industry. Thanks for the words of advice though, I will ask my TA about what would happen should anything go wrong.

            Jules, I think that my concern is only coming from the fact that we in the US really only know one side of the story, however I would have a conversation with your TA about it. Otherwise I think they will still have tourists coming in and the resorts shouldn't be that different.
            Have you seen Dirty Dancing Havana Nights? Its super cheezy, but they have a lot of great scenery and history of the whole fidel thing and why the US had to get out.

              No, I never saw that movie, because it looked so cheesy. lol

              I don't even really know what happened, that is bad, I know, I should look it up. And, I know you guys only know one side, that is what your government wants, lol, the way of the world. But, it really is a beautiful place and I loved it both times I went there, so, I am sure I will love it again. This place, Holguin, looks a lot nicer. I hope I am right.

                  Holguin is a relatively new resort location, I think about 4 years. So, its newer and a little less travelled. I like that.

                  I will show pictures of the resort when I find some, they don't really have a website for the resort, at least I have not found one yet. From what I have seen, and the reviews though, it sounds and looks great.
