Travel by rail from Havana to Santiago

Jump to last reply

Has anyone ventured to travel from one end of Cuba to the other by rail? I understand there is some specatular scenery and its also interesting to see mixed farming operations, they are very "low tech" but apparently quite productive.

Can you take a bike on the train?

I am also wondering how one arranges ahead to stay at guest homes, I know they have them, but I'm pretty certain few if any would have web sites or the like.

I am also guessing that I'll have to do some immersion in Spanish ahead of time.

How about safety of water and food?
