Getting Ready For Cuba

It is only three weeks until we leave for Cuba with Brooks and Linda! I have a ton of research to do. High on the list is to follow in the tracks of Ernest Hemingway when he said: "My mojito in La Bodeguita, my daiquiri in El Floridita"

These are two restaurants in Havana frequented by the writer. We will be staying in Veradero but will spend one or two nights in Havana in a B&B. I want to walk through La Habana Vieja (Old Havana) and a couple of stops for Papa's favorite libations would add some great flavor to the trip.


  1. As of today, your deal is available for $700 per person, taxes included.

  2. I envy you guys. Can't wait to read the blog while you're there.

  3. Friends here in Mexico seemed to feel a trip to Cuba was muy caro - ?

    Will look forward to your review.

  4. I think compared to Mexico we will find it expensive but compared to Canada, it is a bargain. The same trick of staying away from the tourist traps will work. We will be watching for the "peso restaurants"
