2 centre trip to Cuba from the UK

Jump to last reply

Hi there,
I am thinking of planning a trip for 2 to Cuba in October to November ( hopefully avoiding the hurricanes ) this year. I would like to spend a week in an all inclusive beach resort followed by a few days in Havana. How do you arrange such a trip. Are there packages available or do you have to do it all yourself

My initial attempts to get a flight there were about £550+ per person and involved a night in Kingston at each end, which severly limits my time in Cuba.

Are there any direct flights outside of some dodgy Cuban airline, or do you have to go on a charter flight to go direct?

Also , how do you move about the island to get from the beach resort to Havana, if its not easy or particularly safe to hire a car? Is there a safe and comfortable way of bussing across the island by bus or ferry?

Any comments on any of the above questions , or reccomendation on hotels and resorts will be very gratefully received.
Dave
