I went to Cuba with Road Scholar in May of 2014. The most fascinating history I read of Cuba from the 30's to the 70's was a book called Havana Nocturne. Actually I listened to it and was fascinated.

Thomas Bruno Jan 26, 2016 at 06:32 AM

We went in January 2015.
Upon my return I filmed a 17 minute video entitled "Cuba Travel Tips" with notes for future travelers. You might find it helpful, or not. YMMV

Its on YouTube:
Mary Ann Nunez Jan 26, 2016 at 01:19 PM

Somehow my name got posted as "Premium". My name is Veronica Darlene and I am in March 11 trip. Any info or hearing from fellow trip mates would be greatly appreciated. How warm are the days? Is it warm enough to get into the ocean on the beach day?
Dorothy Jackson Jan 24, 2016 at 08:16 PM

Several of the folks got into the water, others waded. I bird-watched.
Gennaro F Gargano Jan 24, 2016 at 10:29 PM

The water was beautiful in mid November (80+ degrees) so it should be near that in March.

Judith Screaton Jan 23, 2016 at 08:31 PM

Great pictures. 1950's car, cute kids, the food looks good. People do dress up evenings. Thanks so much.

Thomas Bruno Jan 23, 2016 at 07:42 PM

We went to Cuba January 2015. Some of you have been asking about what to wear. After our trip I made a YouTube video of a slide show. If you want to see what our group was wearing and what the meals were like, you may get some ideas from the slide show:

Fran Warren Jan 23, 2016 at 08:01 PM

Enjoyed you Youtube. Great pictures. Thank you for sharing.
Richard Godfrey Jan 23, 2016 at 09:08 PM

We also enjoyed the slide show and are looking forward to our Feb 12 trip to Cuba. Thank you Tom Bruno for making and sharing your slide show. (My maiden name was Bruno!)
Richard Godfrey Feb 01, 2016 at 03:29 PM

Actually this is Joyce above. Rich is my husband.
Richard Godfrey Feb 01, 2016 at 03:33 PM

I was wondering about recharging my cell phone which I use as a camera. Do I need another kind of plug?
