I have booked on the Cuba "La Isla Grande" singles departure leaving on July 19th.
I would like to hear from anyone else who is going.
I will be going and have just paid the balance!
Great to hear from you. I was getting worried I thought I was going alone !
Hi Christine and Colin
I will be going too. Very much looking forward to it.
Good to hear from you. Have you been anywhere with Exodus before ?
No it is the first time. I used Explore before. What about you?
I went to India and Peru last year with Exodus. And in February this year I went with them to Sri Lanka. They have all been absolutely brilliant holidays - exhausting - but brilliant !
Wow! you have done some travelling! I have never been to any of these places but Peru is on my wish list.
Peru was fantastic. Amazing scenery. We went from the Pacific coast over the Andes through mediterranean and alpine climates , snow covered volcanoes , then down to Cuzco. Highlights of the trip were the sand buggy in the Atacama desert - mad ! Machu Picchu at dawn, and seeing the stars on Lake Titicaca. I would definitely recommend it.
This trip looks good. I have been reading the travel books. Havana has some amazing architecture. We should see a lot of Cuba. We go away from the main tourist places. I am just sorting out what to take. Since we move every day it is best to pack light however it does seem to get chilly at night so I am taking my fleece just in case. I was going to leave it. Also I need something smart for the Tropicana night club at the end, so I am packing a pair of shoes - getting it all under 20 Kg is going to be tricky especially with all the insect repellant and sun cream !
Hi Christele & Colin,
What do you think the dress code is for the Tropicana? Starting to think about what to take now!
I think it is smart casual. I found this one :-
" Re: Tropicana Dress Code
Tourists can (of course) get away with wearing anything, but at 70/80/90 CUC per ticket the Tropicana is by far the most expensive and most famous cabaret show in the country so you should at least be wearing long pants and a collared shirt. No Cuban would ever considering going in shorts, and neither should you. "
I am taking collared shirts and cargo trousers, I might try to fit in an ordinary pair of trousers. I am taking a pair of shoes. The problem is fitting it all in the case. We had the same problem in Sri Lanka. We stayed at the Hill Club. The men had to borrow jackets and ties to go to dinner. The ladies brought dresses. Apparently it gets chilly in the Tropicana in the evening, since it is outside and there is always a breeze.
I might pack a frock or a nice top! Not long to go now.
Due to health problems I had to cancel trip to Cuba. I am gutted!
Have fun and I may see you on another trip with Exodus before long, hopefully!
I am so sorry to hear that you cannot go. I hope that you get well and you are able to go away somewhere in the near future. I would love to meet you on another trip. I certainly plan to be making more while I still can.
Sorry you won't be with us in Cuba, hope you are well soon.
Just to wish you a great trip. I wish I could come.
Have a fab time!
Thanks Christele, I hope that you can go some other time.
