Veelgestelde vragen

  •  

    Are water bottles provided on the Cuban bikes?

    We don't provide bottles but all the bikes have one bottle holder and the second one could be added on request (depending on availability). The support vehicle follows the group all the time and there are stops whenever the group needs it when you can refill.

    I want to take my own saddle - what is the seat post diameter?

    Many clients bring their own saddle but there is no need to bring it with the seat post. Please take just your saddle.

    Any nightlife tips for Havana?

    Havana has a great bar called El Floridita, which was a regular drinking spot for author Ernest Hemingway.  I definitely recommend trying a strawberry daiquiri or two!
    Another excellent bar is the Casa de la Música for a salsa show in Trindad. The live music and local dancing will conjure up images of the Buena Vista Social Club, with its lively and fast-paced jazz, rumba and salsa.  Be prepared to dance!

    Any Cuban shopping tips?

    Souvenirs are available at all major cities and towns in Cuba.  They range from wooden handicrafts, local paintings to the classic Cuban Cigar.
    Havana has a souvenir market on a Thursday afternoon, which is great for local artists showcasing their work, however Trinidad seem to have the better quality souvenirs, especially of the hand carved variety.  I would recommend Cienfuegos as the place to buy your cigars!

    What is the food like in Cuba?

    Food in Cuba consists mostly of rice, fish, meat, beans and plenty of fresh fruit.  You can't go to Cuba without trying the famous Mohijo or Cuba Libre, but beware that they don't use measuring glasses so they might be stronger than the ones you have tried at home!  Fresh lobster served with salad is also a lovely treat if you visit the island of Cayo Macho. There is also plenty of safe bottled water available throughout Cuba.

  •  

    Do the bikes have any bags or panniers fitted?

    No, they don't.  It is possible to fit panniers if you really want to, but there is hardly any need as the support vehicle follows you all the time and you will have access to it every hour or so. Please note that if you want panniers to be fitted to your bike you would need to bring your own ones with you to Cuba, together with an appropriate bike rack (fitting a Trek 4300 bike).

  •  

    What make are the bikes in Cuba?

    We currently use Trek 4300 bikes with V-brakes.

  •  

    What sort of tyres do the bikes in Cuba come with?

    All the models have semi-slick tyres which we believe are the most convenient for that trip. However if you prefer to use different tyres, please bring your own and they will be fitted.

  •  

    Some days look quite long. Do we need to be experienced cyclists?

    No. The leader carefully breaks up the distances covered with refreshment stops and lunch. The terrain will vary but clients are always free to hop on the support vehicle that shadows the whole group, if they feel like a break. Saying that, you do cover more ground than you think, especially with a tailwind behind you!

    What do I do about money when I arrive in Havana?

    Cuba unfortunately has very few ATM machines, making it slightly more difficult to manage your money supply while in Cuba. Cuba has dual currency system: Cuban Peso (CUP; it's unlikely you will ever need it) and Cuban Convertible Peso (CUC; the one tourists always use). It's best to take all spending money in Sterling cash (Euro or Canadian dollars will also be fine), which can be easily exchanged upon arrival in Cuba. Travellers cheques are accepted at major banks but incur a 5% commission, and some smaller outlets cannot accept them.  Also, along with credit cards, they must have no association with an American bank i.e. Virgin Credit Card or American Express travellers cheques, as they will not be accepted anywhere in Cuba.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
