Discovering Old Havana & Cuban Art

... strongly that her sister wasted her potential by leaving Cuba at 19 without finishing her studies in biochemistry. Cari believes had her sister stayed in Cuba, she would have had more opportunity due to the free education and assistance of her relatively upper-middle class family. Instead, when Cari’s sister arrived in Miami, she could not afford to continue her coursework so she took a job at a laundromat where she ...

... dels EEUU s'acabés. La gent guanyen una mitjana de 25-30$ al mes. Es veu gent fent cua a tot arreu. Nosaltres també ens hi hem acostumat avui que hem volgut comprar una SIM card per tenir telèfon. Cues i cues. No hi ha internet per telèfon i l'skype no arriba: no sabem si és part del bloqueig dels EEUU o del control del govern Cubà.

Però no es veu misèria. No sé si és per la música, pels colors vius que ...

Emotional Roller Coaster

... in the lobby bar for some drinks and to get connected on the WiFi (pronounced WeeFee there). The roller coaster had one final g-force to give us.

Earlier in the day we had driven to a house where Janet was trying to locate her friend Carmen’s brother with whom they had lost contact 12 years ago. Carmen had sent Janet a Facebook IM that morning while we were in the hotel. The phone number she gave us hadn’t work but our driver, noticing a digit ...

So Havana is done and dusted, i spent the first two days there ******** a brick. Pretty sure developed schizophrenia from being paranoid of everyone and everything that moved. I can be quite certain that it will be the strangest place i will go on this trip, communism is one whacky party. Started off in immgration where i thought i was going to be detained for hours on end just so the policia could laugh at me sweat, but that was a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tropicoco Havana

    Tropicaca!

    from

    The Hotel Tropicoco was OK... The rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff were wonderful. The wait staff were in the restaurant were great! The beach is beautiful. What was wrong: Yes - the Front Desk staff were miserable, The hotel facilities, service at the beach ..pretty non existent... the beach bar is truly a joke! The Food...Horrible! Very bad - maybe it was just the week I stayed ..the hotel was pretty empty and everyday I wondered if the buffet would get worse..then came the sardine/fish pasta recycled delight! Thank god for bread and butter (and beer). Even the fruit was not fresh, pineapple with dark spots, rubber papaya etc. The animation was good on some nights. The animation hosts would take us into Havana for night-clubbing. They take you in other ways as well.. so watch your dollars! I would not recommend this Hotel if want to explore Havana. Its too far away...and it can be expensive for a taxi ride back at night. The buffet alone is enough to make me never go back to the Tropicoco!

    Great place, great price, wonderful people!

    from

    Everytime I go to Cuba I go to the Tropicoco. Very simple, pleasant and especially clean hotel. The waiters in the dinin room and every where else are wonderful! My favorite is Rene, he treats us very well!

    Great affordable hotel

    from

    This is a very nice hotel. It's bright and airy, with an open atrium. I have stayed here twice. The first time was not great, but they have renovated since then, so the rooms are more modern. The hotel is very clean, the staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and the beach is gorgeous. The food was pretty bland, but it was suitable. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel to Havana city every couple of hours. You can also walk up the very steep hill, and catch the #400 bus into Havana. It's a bit of a wait, and sometimes crowded, but it costs only 40 cents in Cuban money. The hotel offers tourist excursions as well. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Fair place

    from

    The Tropicoco turned out to be far better than I initially expected.

    My Two Trips To Cuba And Tropicoco Hotel

    from

    From My Standpoint My Two Stays Were Excellent. The Hotel Staff And Management Were Also Eager Too Please. I Have Several Albums In on My Website If You Care To Browsw The Typical Tourist Attractions And The Everday Life Of Cuba Please Visit >> http://community.webshots.com/user/jamesnoland, << You Will Also Find Other Albums That I Have Compiled Since The Spring Of 2003. Happy Viewing

    Great place

    from

    This was our second trip to place.No complaints exept for new rules the goverment had .We met some locals who invited us over to there house for super it was great but on the drive back the police stopped us and charge him for driving us around .They needed a special licence of some kind.I also didn`t like the idea that the locals couldn`t get in the beach disco.The room was kept very clean.the survice was great..loved it.Going back to this place as soon as I can but this time we will take a cab from the airport instead of the bus you get with your package.MONEY WELL SPENT

    Decent Surprise

    from

    I arrived at Tropicoco about 2am, and the place looked dark and mouldy.

    OK place considering $ and Havana

    from

    I stayed in this hotel for Christmas 02 (Dec 21-28th).THE HOTEL: I liked it. Big spaces, not crowded, has a bit of tropical side to it. THE ROOM was better than expected, considering this is a 2.5*. THE AREA was nice. A couple of hotels around. THE BEACH was Good. Yes, you might find some broken glass on your way to the beach, but I think I saw it once. The sea is great! No big waves, very warm water (And I tried many places: Atlantic ocean, Mediterranean). THE FOOD: that's the bad part, not only in this hotel I think, but in Cuba in general. The breakfast is very poor, otherwise it's OK. I can't imagine eating there for 2 weeks! There are a couple of restaurants in the area. Some of them good. Drinks: OK and some included. Not the best but it gets the job done. ANIMATION: a bit poor. Some dance classes, etc but not much. The big problem is that the area is quite isolated so not much to do in the evenings. Advice: go to Havana a couple of time a week, as well as on some evenings. Great city! I took a tour bus, great! Havana nights are special too. Free buses from the hotel 3 times a day (20 min ride), or taxi for about 15$ (very convenient for the evenings). You can also get quite a few souvenirs for a cheap price.Overall: If you're low budget try this hotel. If you can afford a few hundred $ stretch, maybe try some of the 3.5* hotels in the same Area (Santa Maria del mare). The only real complain I have about the hotel is the food, as well as the people who come here (not the coolest crowd I have met). Lot of people from Quebec, which is cool if you're Francophone, but not necessarily what you want if youre looking for a complete exotic adventure. The great advantage is the accessibility to both Havana and the beach, as there are not beaches in Havana.Cuba is great. I'll try it again sometime. Maybe I'll check the Havana/Varadero packages.

    Horrible

    from

    This hotel may have been a nice place years ago but it hasn't been kept up at all. The patio around the pool was dingy and dirty. The small pool itself was foggy. No nightlife what so ever. The bar closed at 10:45 even though the website we booked through (not this one) said the bar was open until midnight. Our room flooded when it rained heavily one night and it seemed like the staff was annoyed that we asked someone to come and mop it up. The beach across the street is a public beach and you'll find broken glass all over the beach. There is no 24 hour emergency health centre in the hotel as some websites had stated.

    We demanded another hotel after one night there. The only good thing I can say was that the food seemed pretty decent. Avoid this place.

    Price for price Tropicoco was ideal

    from

    Price for price Tropicoco was ideal. I paid under $800 CAN and I found the service and the hotel fine. The room was excellent ... always clean with TV, a/c etc... The food was ok, nothing really special but adequate. I was also able to meet a number of local Cubans (in and around the premises) which I found interesting. The beach area is a typical 'public' beach and I thought this was OK as well ... I met quite a few people. The ocean water however is not the greatest for 'snorkeling'.
