Don't you normally have to go to Mexico or somewhere first and then go to Cuba from there and then hope Cuban customs lets you in? I think it's very hard to get clearance from the US to travel to Cuba.

Havana would be a great vacation start. It's a center for the arts and higher education, has some fantastic architecture and Cubans play great jazz. There's thousands of American made cars from the 1950's still in use and Cubans are great baseball fans. I wouldn't expect much shopping but I think you could spend quite a while in Havana without getting bored or running out of things to do.

I would recommend the Holguin area... I've been the several time, specifically the "Sol Rio de Mares/Luna" resort in the Playa Esmeralda area. Wonderful place. Now if you've travel to other All-Inclusive resorts in Mexico and Caribbean, you may be disappointed with the food selection at Cuban resorts but the people, price and beaches make up for it!

Cayo Coco and Cayo Largo are decent if you're looking for a beach getaway type of vacation.

Varadero is over-rated.

As a previous poster mentioned, Cuban resorts, while certainly acceptable in quality, are not up to the same standards you can find in other areas of the Caribbean. Food selection at buffets will likely have less variety and some amenities are scarce or simply not available.

Two of the posters are located in Canada and therefore are probably Canadian citizens who are allowed to visit Cuba. If you are an American citizen you cannot legally enter Cuba unless with a special dispensation from the US State Department. There ARE ways to circumnavigate this (U.S.) dictate but if the State Department gets wind of it you'll be in big trouble and only you can decide whether or not it's worth the time and effort. There are countless other Caribbean islands which you're able to visit legally. Cheers!
