Plans in the works

My family are planning to go to Varadero in November. It is our first time to Cuba.

I would like to know what is the best way to go to Havana from the resort (Sanctuary Grand Memories).

Also would like to know the approximate cost going through the resort , private company?

Is the resorts closes to the local bus?

Your help is much appreciated.

Only bus you will see by the resort is the double decker bus that tourists use to go around Varadero and it costs $5 each and you can get on and off all day .

Best way to to to Havana is finding a private driver or taxi that will take to Havana cheaper then buying excursions from the tour companies at the resorts .

Cheaper and also much more enjoyable because you set the itinerary and the pace.

Public relations person at your hotel will be able to direct you towards a private car tour of Havana. Some other recommendations will also appear on this thread.
