... GO THERE!!! ... Feel this country!

Get the real Cuban feeling!

Cuba is a spectacular country, with beautiful and very warm loving people. Most tourists will go to areas such as Varadero, Jardides del Rey or Holguin and stay in resorts, but my best advice to you is to travel around the country, stay in Casas Particulares, where you will be a guest in a Cuban family's home. Have dinner in the Paladares, which are small private restaurants and talk to the people, mingle with the local Cubans and see how it is they live ... La Vida Cubana

I've heard somebody say ...
In this country there is no gasoline, but cars are all over the road...
There`s no food, but everybody is cooking dinner ...
They have no money, but everybody is dancing and drinking rum ...


Americans Under Licencee to Cuba
Hello all,
This is just a friendly reminder that if you are interested in attending the Spring Symposium from April 25 through May 4, please don't hesitate. They only have 2 symposiums left for this licensing period and the June Symposium is already full. Remember that they cannot hold a place for you until they have all the paperwork in their hands.

They are looking for "independent" travelers who can travel together as a group. In other words, they need people who can adapt quickly to change and who have a resilient spirit. Also, they are looking for people who have some type of professional or volunteer medical experience and/or who can act as translators. Of course, most of all, they are looking for people who are serious about the mission of the CubaAidsProject and will be responsible in their behavior.

For more information, please see the website at www.cubaaidsproject.com.

Cuba's Beaches

The Cuban archipelago, which is 42,854 squares miles (110,992 square km) in size, consist of the main island measuring 744 miles (1200 km) from east to west, the largest island in the Antilles-the Isle of Youth and around 4195 other cayos and islets.

It is common knowledge that the Cuban sea is of excellent quality. The high degree of conservation of its coral formations and beaches attest to its cleanliness. It has a gentle subtropical climate, the product of warm water cooled by the trade winds, so tempertures range between 75.2 and 84.2 F. (24 and 29C.). There are an average of 330 sunny days a year, with few clouds.

The main tourist resorts (including the ones on the cayos) have international airports, and the excellent hotel infrastructure is complemented with a wide range of extrahotel facilities (car and bus rentals, marinas, scuba-diving centers, shops, beauty parlors, fitness centers etc.), entertainment during the day and at night, excursions to nearby cities, medical attention, and special family and honeymoon packages.

Many places on Cuba's coasts are already famous: Varadero, Guardelavaca, Esmeralda, Santa Maria del Mar, Santa Lucia and Ancon Beaches, which are lovely by tourists from all over the world, and Coco, Guillermo, Largo del Sur, Santa Maria, Las Brujas and Levisa Cayos.

But there are other places-anonymous as yet or little known-virgin beaches which are not the exception but rather the rule. Large or small, they are waiting to be discovered on the Guanahacabibes Peninsula, a preserve of the biosphere; the coasts in the center and eastern parts of the country; and in tranquil Baracoa, at the eastern extreme of the island. You can enjoy them to the full in complete safety. There's nothing quite like walking along a beach for hours with nothing to disturb you.
