A group of us are going to Varadero in March. I was thinking since it's pretty close to Havana that a trip there would be a good idea? But I have some questions I was hoping you guys could help me with? Thanks in advance! :)
1. We are staying at Iberostar Laguna Azul. Do these resorts offer a standard Havana trip excursion? I know that some resorts organize some excursions? If so, how much $$ is it would you say? Is it also a big group thing where everyone sticks together, on a bus maybe also? etc?
2. I heard that you can also hire a taxi? What would it cost for a taxi there and back? And I understand that you can hire them for the entire day?? & they can sometimes double as a tour guide also?? Any thoughts, advice or experiences with this would be great?
3. I am interested very much in the history of Cuba... just finished reading like 4-5 books & biographies on Cuba... Do these tours take you to historic sites in Havana that have to do with the revolution, Fidel or Che? Or is it more just site seeing beautiful scenery, etc? Any ideas where to go or things to see with regards to this would be greatly appreciated also!!
