margarita or cuba - which is better????

we went to cuba last september and absolutely loved it!! we stayed at the iberostar Daiquiri which was fantastic. we are going to Margarita this september and are staying at the LAguna Mar. we were just wondering if anyone had visited cuba and margarita to see how they measure up to each other, as obviously we dont want to be dissapointed!!!

1. Re: margarita or cuba - which is better????

I have been to both country's in the last few years and have found both country's very safe, they both have different cultures and life styles. Margarita is much hotter and more predictable weather. Cuba has a lot more beaches but MI has a few good ones. (Playa el Agua). Prices in MI are very cheap. Angel Falls tour is a must but don't let the price scare you it is worth every penny. Porlamar is no Havana but it has more variety and is very safe ( no beggars) and a very large flea market. Cabs are the cheapest way to get around and I mean cheap.

I have been to both too. I stayed in Varadero Cubo back in 1996 and enjoyed it very much.

This year we went to Laguna Mar and it was superb also. Resort is really nice and tes entertainment staff are excellent.

I did some trip in cuba ( pina del rio, havana, caves etc ) but unfortunately didn't do any in margarita as we have a 3 and 4 year old now..

I certainly don't think you will be dissappointed at all.

We are looking at Margarita for next year - Dunes Hotel - we also have done last year and are going again in Oct.

Friends have done both and say they would not go back to margarita again - so now we are in two minds what to do.
