A pretty deep dive into several diverse locales in western Cuba, travelling in a small group on a good 24 passenger Chinese built mini bus with a fabulous, knowledgeable, intelligent English speaking young guide named Mickel. Staying at B&B's, or Casas Particulares as they are known in Cuba, was OK if you're not expecting a Hilton Motel. Each one had good clean bedding, strong, but oddly inflexible A/C system, a room safe, and was situated in a good location. Plumbing was usually good but water pressure could pose a problem occasionally. , Water is a common problem in the 'worker's paradise' where everyone is equal, as in equally poor. The Cuban Convertible Peso, pegged to the USD rules; the regular peso of the people is dying a slow death. Rather than recommend this trip, I say that it should be MANDATORY for any American who has an unearned gov't entitlement, especially college grads who have Federally insured loans. I have neither but I still am digesting the experience two weeks later. Cuba is at a crossroads; it can stay the course and wind up like Venezuela, or veer toward private ownership, and prosper like China has done. I blew a kiss to the air when I landed home in FLL. Great trip, but I would like to understand why such an inexpensive location (casas were $20-$65 per night) was over $2500. That was the sole reason I gave it only four stars out of five. Terry G.

While I would travel with Globe Drifters again and do recommend them, it was Mikel, our Cuba tour guide who really made this trip a cultural experience. It is extremely obvious that he has developed relationships with people in order to enhance travelers experience. And, I lost my passport and Mikel went out of his way to attempt to track it down at the airport where I believed it was lost. He did not have to do that and when he couldn’t find it, he stayed with me the entire 3 hours it took to get a new one. In that process, he remained calm and deciphered how to best get me a new passport. If you go to Cuba with an interest in learning about the country, you will have a great time. If you are interested in bringing items to share with people I’d recommend, bars of soap, toilet paper, tampons, baby wipes, and sunscreen.
