Canadian Steve re: Cuba

Jump to last reply

Hi Steve. I notice you are full of knowledge about Cuba and you have a fabulous website of photos - thanks for sharing, they are great. I am a US citizen and I want to go to Cuba in the spring. I have been attempting to contact cubalinda but so far no success, anyway I will keep trying as I know they do not operate like we North Americans (and I live in NYC where everything is fast!).
A few questions for you:

1) Is April or May a good time to go?
2) I speak some Spanish - do you know of any Cuban Spanish phrase books, seems that would help with local lingo.
3) How about food options if you don't eat red meat? I eat chicken, fish, and love rice and beans.
4) Is bottled water readily available? I went to the former USSR in the 80's and it was difficult to get.

That's about all I can think of right now. Please add any comments or tips. I appreciate your assistance.

Happy Travels! Oh by the way if you like Latin countries and have not been to Costa Rica, I highly recommend it. I've been there 3 times and it's beautiful!
Thanks again, Maura
