Scene from Varadero. Rear-end of a tourist, heck, maybe a Canadian.
Arthur Frommer lists Cuba as No. 13 on his list of 20 best travel deals, at least for Canadians. Here are the details:
Cuba: $535 for most departure dates in September, $645-$675 in July and $755 in August, from Signature Vacations, including round-trip airfare from Toronto and all taxes and fees, for a full week of all-inclusive arrangements (room, meals, drinks and sports) at a Varadero Beach hotel. In July and August, you’ll receive a standard but comfortable room for seven nights at the beachside Hotel Club Kawama (in a breathtaking seaside setting). In September, on weekend departures, Signature Vacations will provide airfare, hotel, meals, fees and taxes for $535 per person, but at the 242-room Sunbeach Varadero. The 35-year-old Signature Vacations, a division of Sunwing Tours, is reached at 800-268-7074. Keep in mind that Cuba now requires you have a medical insurance policy.
