Anyone Taken a Spring Floating Recliner to Cuba

Just got a couple of these from Costco. They're about $30 each and look like they should be fun in the ocean. I never noticed them in Cuba before. Any opinions before we pack them (or not)?

Yes, take one nearly every time we go.

Never had a problem in the pool or the sea.

It is a fun game at the end of the holiday to roll it up and get it back in its bag.

My girlfriend brought one with her one time and used it too. There were 10 of us that went and we all enjoyed using it. She packed it in one of the guys suitcase because she was out of room in hers.

I don't have the weight for one of these either so I bring a blow up one that gets left behind for someone else to use after I've gone.

Cheers

Pack them for sure....fun in the ocean and in the pool ! We're noticing more and more people with them every year.

Do all your fellow travellers a favour - use them in the ocean but keep them out of the pool! Could tend to be very annoying....

Sounds like a great thing for the ocean though as I hear the waters are very calm!!

Don't worry, you're safe... we're beach snobs.

Surely not an issue if the pool is large??

RHE had 'floaties' at all 3 pools on our last visit - we used one for our drinks as a 'booze barge' and toured around the pool in the afternoon! Not sure if this is still the case?

No I wasn't referring to the regular floaties you see in the pools - no problems there! It's the big roaming cities that you see some people bring and can't help but run people over in the pools.

Didn't mean to sound like a prude haha!

Hee, I can't imagine having the room to pack one of the big ones!! I try and not run into anyone in the pool when I'm on my raft...but it is a great way to meet people :)

Cheers
