Vacuuming Fidel Castro's house would be an interesting activity!!!! Not many people can say they've done that! haha, okay I'm just having a little fun.
On a more serious note, I have friends that have spent time in Varadero and Santiago, Cuba. I remember them saying they had a real sense of relaxation in these two cities as they seemed more slower-paced. I wish I had more detail, but this was in conversation a while ago, so you might want to look into flying there as I do not have any more updated information.
Looking forward to your Trip Report with lots of photos!!!!!!!

Quoting longhauler (Reply 5): Any ideas why it closed, or what happened to the aircraft?
I have no clue unfortunately. I was there in February and took a taxi from Havana to the museum one day. When we got there all that was left was a cleared lot. The driver was kind of confused too, but it was definitely the right place. It was a nice taxi ride through a beautiful tranquil suburb though, in a classic Chevrolet and super cheap.
I took a domestic flight in an AN24 when I was in Cuba. I got my museum experience right there.
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home

Quoting Loran (Thread starter): In terms of non-aviation, I’d be interested to take a train ride across the country. Apparently this is possible within a full day? Has anyone done this before?
I don't know about a train ride, but renting a car is very easy and not all that expensive. The highways are very well marked and very good quality. I drove from Havana down to Pinar del Rio, a nice drive and a beautiful area. Gas was cheaper there than in Canada, and they accepted by Ontario Driver's Licence.
Also, if you have time, spend some time in Havana itself. Lots and lots of history and lots of friendly locals looking to point you in the right direction.
