I thought the hotel was the best in Havana - it was excellent quality. The food stops were very good. I learned so much about Cuba and her people due to the great places we visited - for instance, spending the morning at a health clinic and shopping for the evening meal at the local market.

Everything ran like clockwork except one of our inter Costa Rica flights was cancelled at the last minute. The local Alexander & Roberts contact was very apologetic and was able to book us a private charter flight to get us to our next destination on time. We were really pleased with this high level of service.
