It is roughly a 6 hour journey to Varadero from Trinidad. This is the most touristy part of Cuba and is full of 5* all inclusive hotels. However we wanted to have a livelier New Year considering how quiet our Christmas was! We stayed in a 3* hotel for 3 nights but then found a Casa for 3 nights. Casa's are illiegal in Varadero but if you ask the right questions it is possible to find one. They are half the price of hotels.

After going to the wrong bus station we had to take a 20 minute cab ride to the correct terminal. Apart from that travelling around Cuba by bus is very easy. We arrived at about 2pm and were met by Mirian whose Casa (house) we were staying at for 6 days. We had a section of her house to ourselves and the other part was occupied by her family.
