    Varadero Warnings and Dangers

    One thing you really don't want to eat when you're in Cuba is a hamburger. They are, seriously, the most disgusting things I have ever eaten.

One caveat: Some of the burgers at the resorts are edible, if a...

  • Cuban cigars

    Varadero Warnings and Dangers

    Everyone allegedly has a relative or best friend working in a cigar factory in cuba. A cigar addict myself, I know they are fake for sure. The only time I would buy a box off the street is if I was planning on handing them out to people who don't smoke cigars as gifts.

    Varadero Warnings and Dangers

    Remember that these scooters are driven hard and not a lot of money for repairs. We drove 70K into the countryside and one scooter had mechanical troubles. We limped it back Varadero and it died. Don't get stranded! I got stung by a bee outside of Caderas, so be aware of that. Finally, don't get drunk and ride. I have seen a few people at the...

    Varadero Warnings and Dangers

    When you first get to the Cuba sun, please wear sunscreen. We got burned the first day and it's not the best experience for the rest of the trip. Also remember to wear shoes or flipflops when you walk near vegetation. There are cactus in Cuba and it hurts when you step on their pins.
