          Heading here on July 7th for 4 days and we are very excited. I have been to Cuba many times and all over. We are in a junior suite, should we upgrade? Can you upgrade when you check in? Is it cheaper to upgrade prior with our travel agency? We have never done the butler service, is it really worth the extra? I see some beautiful pools and bars that are for royal service only and I would hate to kiss the opportunity to explore all. I am at a lose? Do we need water shoes? What are the top 3 restaurants?

          You don't need to upgrade, a junior suite is very good, you can upgrade when you check in if you feel you want to, and I think its cheaper because you get vouchers when you check in- the butler service isn't worth the extra... More

          HI, how many CUC's should I get to account for tipping, etc and is the airport the best place to get them? Can I get them with my credit card or do I need cash to exchange?

          There is a bureau de change at the resort. $50-100 is more than enough. Employees find it difficult to change USD, etc. They are only paid 25CUC's per month so they are very grateful for tips. Hope this helps??
