Jude: Here is the info from my fiancÚ. If you have further questions, let me know . . . Hope it helps . . . :-))) Laura in Indy *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ if you like living history and seeing cuba go to havana. if you like the beach and want to be in a place like any other resort town go to varadero. havana is very safe, no drugs, nor crime, nice folks. you have to see the tourist areas but there is little begging. take soap, aspirin, vitamins and gum for the kids (chalk too) to give away. do not give away money. the average cuba make $20 a month, don't insult them by lavishing large amounts of cash or conspicuous consumption. there are numerous good, inexpensive hotels in havana. you will have to go via mexico, canada or the bahamas. air cubano is very good and you get free rum and cokes!! i have been there 8 times.
