Going to Havana for 5 days in November then on to Varadero for 9. Have been told that the beggars in Havana are very intimidating and that they grab you when begging. Does anyone have any experience of this? We will be two mature women on our own and have really been so looking forward to our visit to Havana so don´t want anything to mar our trip. I am a fluent Spanish speaker so well able to tell them to go away!!
