Wow, what's happening with global warming, Mardi. Cuba seems to be shrinking fast!

Hello terbear,

We flew from Holguin to Havana in February, it takes 1hr 45 mins, it was in a twin engine ~ noisy but a hell of a lot quicker than a bus ride, mind you when we got to the airport for the return flight we were delayed by a couple of hours, but I can recom'd the Ham and cheese toasti!

Have a wonderful time, we did

terbear,

There are daily direct flights from Holguin to Havana, either ask your travel agent or 'google'.....

Forget the bus as Holguin is not on the direct "Viazul" Santiago de C - Havana route, so you'd have to get a bus to Bayamo and hang around to catch the next Havana bus.

You are correct - you must visit Havana before the US embargo ends!

We were told there are three schedule flights a day to Havana from Holguin : early morning, 230pm and 11pm. Also the Cubana from London stops at Holguin enroute to Havana (which we caught) only problem was it was delayed by 12 hours from London so we missed part of our stay in Havana. Probably best to go schedule flight.

Rep told us the bus was at least 6 and half hours and on those roads I doubt if it would be a fun time.

You will love Havana though, its well worth the trip.
