TIPS

Stop at Puente de Bacunayagua for the best Pina Colada!! Your driver may stop automatically, if not, it's worth asking.

All Cuban beaches are public so locals may visit as well. Bring item such as school supplies and toiletries for the less fortunate.  I have also been asked for shoes.

Get to buffet at opening for dinner or risk items running out, opt for a-la-carte

Take own toilet paper to public washrooms

Bring snorkel gear, bug spray, water shoes

Understand low cost vacation = lack of food quality/choices and you will be fine
