student looking for fellow eng-speaking travellers out there

Postby grega » Tue Nov 22, 2005 8:00 am

Hi, i'll be backpacking in Cuba throughout Dec, alone and for the 1st time. i can imagine i'll be quite clueless on my 1st week or two.
i'd like to meet fellow Europeans/Canadians out there if possible to show me around or just hang around for a while. what are my options? :-)

I find it a little odd that no one replies as obviously there'll be plenty of backpackers there throughout December. or are they of the unsocial variety?..
anyway, i'm off in 3 days!

Sorry you didn't find anyone... Perhaps it's the wrong forum. I believe Lonely Planet has a forum which specializes more in backpacker type information, maybe you'd have more luck there.

Anyway, have a great trip to Cuba and please post when you get back to let us know how it went.

i'm back and it went pretty fine. i was almost never alone either, thanks to both fellow tourists and friendly locals.
travelled through Pinar del Rio, Cayo Hutias and then eastwards (Matanzas, Varadero, Santa Clara etc.). had no money to venture further south than Trinidad though -- as most of us know, Cuba is very expensive for tourists.
