ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Did you find that the AC was working in the rooms?
Terry Heller Mar 30, 2015 at 09:54 PM

Yes. In fact it was cold. They have a unique system. You out your room key in to turn on the lights and ac.
Susan Sandler Mar 31, 2015 at 01:39 AM

Thank you, Terry....
Elizabeth Ramadass Apr 01, 2015 at 01:51 PM

Most hotels now require your room key in a slot to turn o the lights, etc.

Barbara Rice Mar 30, 2015 at 06:51 PM

Were hair dryers provided in the hotel rooms? If so, how were they?
Terry Heller Mar 30, 2015 at 06:54 PM

Yes and they were fine. I had my own with me just in case but never used it.

I participated in the February 25th trip. I'd like to point out that the majority of Cubans don't have access to the basic comforts (and necessities) that we Americans take for granted. Please be open to experience life in Cuba outside your hotel room.
Barbara Rice Mar 31, 2015 at 10:35 AM

Agreed, but don't know what that has to do with wanting to dry my hair.

For those going as a single ...Road Scholar is a great choice. People are always friendly and do not form cliques, etc. Keep in mind that most of our meals are as a group so we will be sitting together and even at breakfast when people come to eat at different times they always will just sit with someone else in the group. Also the groups leaders eat meals with the group which is another bonus. So anyone traveling alone ...do not be concerned ...I mentioned before that I've been a group leader in Philadelphia for 6 years and I've always had terrific people who are friendly with each other and enjoy meeting new people. Even people traveling as couples or with friends like to be with others ...that's part of the fun of travel.
Pamela Hazard Mar 30, 2015 at 10:39 PM

I went as a single and I never felt it was a problem. Everyone was friendly and interesting.
