    Moving to correct thread.

    Now on to the most important topic for newbies to know: WiFi.

    To get WiFi access you have to buy ETESCA cards. One hour or 5 hour. Each hour is 1 CUC. No discount for buying 5.

    Fastest way to buy is at Ingleterra hotel. They are a reseller for ETESCA. Cards are same as the ones you get at ETESCA office on Obispo.

    The WiFi hotspots I tried suck and they are overloaded with users, slow and motivate you to shoot yourself or kill somebody.

    The ETESCA cards don't work in other fancy hotel hotspots. They have their own higher priced packages. Parque central is 4 CUC per hour but comes with a soft drink. You will spend more while having coffee at Inglaterra.

    Meli Cohiba is 2 CUC per hour.

    Airport is 1 CUC for 30 min card.

    Changing Money. I took Canadian dollars and that saved me bunch of money. Most part of my trip was with a non mongering group. (Lickynuts, please don't laugh).

    Airport change place always has long lines. Bank also takes time but at least I am not at the fucking airport sweating.

    The most efficient place I found is on Obispo. They are crazy efficient for commies. I chatted a cute teller and she was glad to chat and take a break. She told me it is better to bring Canadian even if it costs 3% to buy Canadian in US it is worth it because of 10% surcharge on dollar and this is on top of 3% Cuban exchange cost. Basically you buy 87.5 CUC for 100 USD sold. By selling the $100 USD and buying Canadian in a US bank and then buying CUC, I got 95 CUC. Worth it if you are changing in thousands.

    BTW, she also told me that there are serious discussions of eliminating CUC this year.

    ETESCA and Money and cost.

    I by mistake posted some ETESCA card info on Havana forum which is more appropriate here. I will try to move it.

    Someone suggested to use USD and try to "Navigate" and leverage the off market trading power of USD. That would be good info to have for long term mongers.

    Totally agree with couple of you that said Cuba is hard and expensive. Arguing against that is like my friend from Siberian city saying he likes living in Siberia. He like is and thrives there does not mean that it is not Hard and expensive. Cuba works for few who have put time and effort into it. I got super lucky thanks to DiavelLoco.

    Re apartments. I did find an Apartment for my mongering day with wifi. They are very few. I was told that you need some sort of back Chanel connection or bribe someone for a home owner to get wifi approved in their homes.

    I have zero intention of taking part in an argument here. Just stating my observations.

    I've been to Havana s few times as well as Colombia. I liked both places. Prices are cheaper in Colombia without the policia hassle.

Cuba can be quite enjoyable if you approach it from a different perspective.

    All of which is opposite in Colombia.

    I'm surprised you don't recommend Cuba for mongering. Seems like it has lots of potential, from what I've gathered.

    What are some reasons that you don't recommend Cuba?

    Conversely, why Colombia?

    Veradero many have all inclusive, but is not girl friendly. I would go to DR for women.

    Hey Free,

    Here's is a link from Lonely Planet blog about recent developments in Cuba.

    https://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree********americas-cuba/cuba/cuba-s-recent-fuel-shortage-problems-for-tourist

    Mondo.

    p.s. Seems weird but the asterisks will not print! tried to write it down and it goes automatically to asterisks again which won't take you to the link . So, just Google it with a search related to this or go to Lonely Planet site.

    Steve, would you mind messaging me too? (I'm a new member so I don't think I can PM yet) but I'm strongly considering Cuba and would like to hear recent info about the above.

    Lmk thanks!
