Cuba Welcome Brochure

Recommended Posts

You did a great job Amy!


I will add only two things - how to avoid food poisoning and how to help if will happen. I'm righting article about this but won't be ready until the end of the month.

One of the tricks is to drink a little bit of peptobismol everyday.


Buena Vista Social Club plays every 1 and 3 Wednesday in Plaza America - amazing experience.

Other thing - if you buy anything in Plaza America be sure to count before you will pay.


If you want to rent a car don't do it in the hotel. Cubarcar charge 150 CUC for one day (Hunday Atos, cheapest and smallest one), you can have a car at better price at Miramar or few other rental places in the Varadero.


If you want to give a gift for somebody - memory sticks, old cellphones(with sim card) , old laptops,are really precious there. If you want to help bring them with you and gift to somebody.

Don't give your clothes in the resort, especially to the servers, maids etc. They all will be finishing on the black market.

People who really need them are living out of the resorts.


All the best for your wedding!

Just wanted to add some ideas that I have had for my welcome brochure for Holguin. I am planning on sending this out by email or snail mail 3 weeks before we leave for the wedding (aka, this Saturday), so that everyone has time to prepare.

These are the items I am going to include:

-airport and parking information (Toronto)

-flight times and terminals, idea for tying on luggage – ribbons, bows?

-flight stops in Cayo Coco, we get a meal, 2 pieces of luggage totaling 20kg (44lbs-suggestion is to only bring one piece)

-once we arrive in Holguin

-security check, pick up luggage, have one person get money exchanged and the other get baggage, get beer, get on bus – ride is 60-70 minutes from the airport to the resort

-arrival at resort, check in, drinks

-resort information –restaurants and dress code at night, book early!


-wedding information, day before, day of, wedding dress code

-off resort tours, excursions, scooters, trip to town

-bringing presents for maids, etc


-voltage – need converters

-check out sunwing website for ideas of possible tours: Holguin Tours and Excursions - Sightseeing Attractions in Holguin – Sunwing Vacations.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
