DECEMBER 2012 AND JANUARY 2013 IN CUBA!  (7 Answers)

i finally did it, i.e. i booked my flight to go to CUBA for the holidays. i will be leaving Montreal to VARADERO on DECEMBER 21 (arriving at 9pm) and returning to Montreal from VARADERO on JANUARY 5 (leaving at 12h25pm).
i am planning on staying in 'CASAS PARTICULARES' in VARADERO on the first 2 nights (december 21 and december 22) and on the last 2 nights (january 3 and january 4) because of my flights.
SO, for the other 11 nights, can i wait until i get there to book the rooms? i have not planned everything yet, but i was thinking of going to the west to do some biking, maybe going to Trinidad. also going to the playas del este. and i thought of spending DECEMBER 31 in LA HAVANA.
does that seem like a good plan?
thanks in advance for your advice.

Ferry from Trinidad to Tobago (and return)  (1 Answer)

I'm looking to get an idea as to how the schedule works for the ferry. Currently the website has a schedule posted for March 2011 (when we'll be traveling).

It looks like for most of the month there are several times per day that you can catch the ferry back from Tobago, however are the dates we are traveling (March 26th - April 1st) there are only 1 or 2 times listed.

Will the site be updated with more times later or is this just the way it is?
Trying to figure out the best way to make the most of our time and have a little flexibility! Do you recommend flying? Any suggestions or additional information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :-)

Two centre holiday option in Trinidad?  (3 Answers)


We are in Cuba just for one week. We have already booked the first 3 nights in Havana old town centre. We would like to spend perhaps 3 nights elsewhere before returning to Havana for our flight home.

Trinidad seems a good place to go but it seems to be quite a distance and not easy to get to. Any advice please?

We don't want to spend lot's of time on the beach but would like to snorkel while there.

Would we be better off doing day trips from Havana or going to Varadaro or perhaps to the West?

Any advice most welcome, thanks.

from trinidad to venezuela  (7 Answers)


in november i will visit a friend in barbados, i also want to visit another friend at venezuela, caraca. Since i'm a student, and my budget is low i want to spend as less money as possible in the trips. i think that the cheap way to go from barbados to caracas, is to catch a plain to trinidad, and then a ferry to the continent. This friend from caracas told me to try to find a ferry from trinidad to isla margarita, that, has he said, is the cheapest way to go to caracas.
i'm tired of looking for at websites, for some information of ferrys from trinidad to venezuela.
can someone please help, cause if there is a ferry i need to know as soon as possible if its a diary or a weekly ferry.

i would appreciate a lot for an answer as soon as possible...

thank you very much and good trips...

More info needed (desperately!)  (1 Answer)

I am traveling to Trinidad/Tobago in December and will stay 3-4 days before heading to Venezuela....or at least this is my plan provided that someone can give me more information!!! Is there really just one way to get to Guiria, Venezuela? I read about a ferry that departs once a week from Port of Spain, but if it really does only leave once a day on Wednesday I won't make my return flight! Is there any way to go with a private boat/fishing boat? And lodging...I am on a pretty tight budget. Is there any way to spend around 8-10 USD per night? Any suggestions? Thanks so much for your help!

Anyone know updated ferry information for Venezuela to Trinidad?  (1 Answer)

We are currently travelling around South America and move to Caracas on 21st May. We get married in Tobago on 31st May and need to be there by 26th or 27th May to complete those last minute preparations before the family arrive on 28th and 29th. We planned our wedding on the assumption that there is a ferry service from Guiria, Venezuela to Port of Spain, Trinidad on Wednesdays (as per Lonely Planet, Venezuela). However, we have been unable to find the ferry service or get any information about how to make a reservation. Does anyone know if the service is still running or how we go about making a reservation? We will be very grateful for any help as time is running out. Muchos gracias.

Accomodation in Trinidad  (5 Answers)

Trinidad sounds a lovely place! There don't seem to be any hotels in the town centre, though. All the guide books only mention hotels outside, mostly at the sea. Can anyone recommend a nice hotel or B & B in the centre? Also, is there a way to get from Havana to Trinidad by public transport? Thanks in advance! Beatrice from Germany
