Mexico and Cuba

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at travelling to Mexico and Cuba with my 18 year old son at the end of a bigger family holiday on the US West Coast (we are from Sydney). We were really wanting to see Cuba but given we have to travel via Mexico, thought it would be worth checking out.

We really only have 10 or 11 nights starting from and returning to LA. I was thinking of 2-3 nights in Cancun, 5 nights in Havana and 2-3 nights in Mexico City. Any thoughts/suggestions?

We are looking for a more buget/non-resort experience although I'm sure my son would enjoy some partying. Are there quieter, less tourity places to stay near Cancun? Are we spreading ourselves too thin in each place? Would we be better to just go to Cancun or Mexico City rather than both?

Peter
