Havana excursions from Varadero
Posted 08 March 2010 - 11:46 PM
Just curious to hear someone else's experience before we decide on a trip. We'd both like to see Havana and figure it'd be a nice excursion away without the rest of our wedding group.
Any thoughts on this would be great

I just got back from Varadero 3 weeks ago and did a couple really great excursions. We did a Havana trip but because we didn't like the idea of going in a big tour bus with all kinds of other people we asked at our resort about other options. They were able to set us up with two vans (there were 15 of us) and an english speaking tour guide that took us where ever we wanted to go...best part of all, it was only $45 CUC per person as opposed to over $100 CUC per person for many of the tour bus excursions. Our guide was fantastic and we had a blast. We got out and walked around alot and saw much of both old and new Havana. Best piece of advice I could offer though is to have some idea of what you want to see in Havana as we weren't sure and spent more time in New Havana instead of the old part. We all said later we wished we had more time there!
We also did the jeep tour and it is so fun-well worth the money! Hope you enjoy your trip!!!!

Not like the usual happy kind of atmosphere you get on other excursions. And I think going in a couple smaller vans would also take care of some of the issues with getting dragged on for money and stuff. I'm assuming people in the city know when the big bus tours come by so they know when to hang around. (Don't get me wrong, I don't mind giving out a few dollars, lol... but it got a little intense they said)
