I went to Cuba in November and stayed in an all inclusive – Iberostar Varadero – not my favourite way to travel but it was a relaxing week, with my husband, with whom I don’t travel much. The resort is great – food not so good – “communist industrial” as a friend called it. We had a lovely tme with a driver and guide going to Havana in a 1957 cherry red Chevy BelAir. The guide taught English at a university and makes very little money. The driver had a degree in mechanical engineering and his wife was a doctor but he still had to drive a taxi to make money. The people are its greatest asset – very friendly and helpful.
