Anybody traveled there?

We booked kind of a last minute deal so we are heading to Veradero on Wednesday. Not only have I never been there, I haven't even been to a commie country since the 1980s. Any travel tips you may have would be appreciated. Particularly, about how much money I'll need (bank machines rare, credit cards not regularly accepted), and eating for vegetarians (it is a big carnivore kind of country and even the beans and rice dishes are cooked with animal fat).

I feel like such a :drekkus:

I hear the hookers are extremely persistent.

Thanks, but the wife should discourage them.

I hear they have good cigars

The shopping at Gitmo is nice.

Great! Americans and Drekkus. Not exactly what I was hoping for in Cuba travel experts.

They have really nice music too! Look for a place called the Buena Vista Social Club (damn socialists!)

And the cars are very classic!!
