Getting There
Aero Caribbean turbo prop
takes you to Isla de Juventud
from Havana. We were stranded
for 22 hours on the Island
prior to return to Havana.
Airline did not inform us of
flight changes and delays.
Getting to Cuba was via
Mexico. Booked travel through
Responsible Cuba Travel. They
made dive resort reservations,
and domestic flight and taxi
transfers. Highly recommended.
