    Currently (January) there is a transportation crackdown. Most of the gypsy cabs and lots of the collectivos are gone. The lack of collectivos andgypsy cabs mean that the regular taxis start at $7 for short rides. Also way fewer bicitaxis.

    There is beer in restaurants (mostly Sol, Presidente & Hollandia) but almost none in the stores. Ended up in Miramar to buy a couple of cases of Presidente, though there was some beer in Galleria de Paseo. Also no eggs and not much chicken to be found.

    The lack of transportation has affected the number of chicas at the clubs. Ya there are some but most girls found are from close by. That means worse in Miramar and still the same in centro and vieja.

    btw............es winter time in Cuba too! That means the malecon is very very windy at night. You think Cubans are hanging around the malecon at night when I see them wearing coats during the day ? Daytime temps were 27 C. If you can speak Spanish, daytime is always the best time to be finding chicas
    Why would they need to import flour? You can make flour from almost any grain. Shortage of eggs and chicken?

Trust me, I would not be rolling down there so many times, if it was so boring. Smh.
    I trust your Spanish is at least functional?

    Cuba scoop.

    The girls are still in Cuba and they still like to fuck. With the new president he has this get tough policy to show he means business and everyone is nervous. Eventually everyone will relax and it will be good hunting. Probably best to be a low key monger as they are paying more attention to who is with us. Can't blame the girls for being cautious especially when threatened with three years in prison. Get the number and have them come to your place. Maybe not a good time to be hanging out in public to protect the girl. Or go online pre trip and line up girls and numbers for your arrival. The local girls without a phone might have to stick with the local trike guys so use them and pay the premium.

    But don't pay the trike guy more than 10 cuc for the intro, 5 cuc would be even better but those guys can sense if you are desperate. If a trike guy says 50 cuc for the girl he is a crook, most guys on trikes pay these gurls 10-15 cuc for sex.

    I've seen Havana go up and down in the last 6 years and it's just the natural rotation. Ask the locals about the new spot and check it out because I've seen spots that take over a year to reach tourists and the internet. Example; Pica flora or Saint John's was a cabaret on the 14th floor of the St John's hotel for years, then they changed the format and working girls started going. No one posted about it for a year until Grownman started going, then it became the spot. Hell I would sit at Sofias cafe which is two doors from st John's and never knew it was for working girls. Guys still talk here about salon de rojo but it hasn't been shit for awhile. La grunge has working girls night, gay night, and couples night so you got to tap into the local gossip to know what's going on.

But still I thought my time there was worth it. I hope it hasn't really gotten this bad there.

    I'm sorry to hear you had a bad time but I can't say I agree.

    Yes Havana is not easy point and click mongering like Pattaya or Sosua. But if you put in the work the results can be great, as I and several other BMs who were there in November and posted can attest.

    You can find some very cute, young, and fresh girls who will rock your world with real GFE experience for 50 bucks or less. Not hard core putas but part times who are doign it for a little bit of extra cash.

    But don' look to the bars or clubs. Those are a complete waste of time.

    The key is to spend time at the hotspots. Certain sections of the Malecon, La Rampa. Be friendly, smiling, and gregarious. You don't' need a lot of spanish but a few phrases help. And above all be patient. It can take some time to find the right one and there will be a lot of dead time on the calle when the police presence is high and the girls are scared to talk. But if you take your time you will really be rewarded.

    Collect the numbers for the good ones and call them over to your casa for repeat sessions. Bring modest gifts (chocolates, cheap perfume, clothes) and these girls will love you.

    Boring Havana Trip (-off)

    +1+1+1 on all the posts about how bad Havana has become. Nice to hear I'm not alone. I was there in 2002 and loved it and have been trying to get back ever since.

    I was there last Feb, and took a room over in the "new town" by the US Embassy because some guidebook said it was the good part of town. Stick with old town. No taxi would touch me for under $10 for a 2 km drive. Hope I wasn't blasted by whatever they are nuking the embassy folks with.

    The rip off and hassle was never-ending. The Cubans I met were so angry and sad. I'd walk in a bar and sit there for 5 minutes before anyone would bother to talk with me, and I've got money! I'd just come from Puerto Rico where it's smiles all over, what a contrast. I couldn't wait to leave. I never want to leave when I'm on vacation.

    I flew out of Varadero, which was also terrible. Not a single bar on the beach out of some sort of "beach natural law" I'm guessing.

    How terrible was it? I got to the airport 4 hrs early, just so I wouldn't miss my flight. Flying home never felt so good.

    I wish you better Cuba, I know you're all fighting to just get by, but I ain't going back any time soon.

    I think the only way to do Cuba is with organized tours. Those folks hopping in a convertible old USA car for the day and paying $150 are going to have a blast. Used to traveling latin america? You're going to go crazy.

    Sorry for the debbie-downer post. I changed my USD to Euro's to avoid the conversion fees, and walked home w 300 E, money that could have been well spent, but wasn't. #SAD!

The tourist money has made them real crazy in the last year. The malecon is dead! I walked it twenty times at night. 18 months ago there were dozens and dozens, now there aren't any birds at all. Even the amount of youngsters having a good time has dropped. There are police everywhere and this year they have dogs. They also turn up in a white lorry with about 15 in at a time. Arresting the locals for absolutely anything. Man, what a police state this is.

    Outside hotel National the hotel National taxi and security guy said the price of taxi to Varadero was 150 cuc. He said it was the ' Law' , well across the road three yellow govt taxis all quoted 100 cuc!! Everyone is ripping tourists off. They target Americans and Asians. They prey on you because some of these tourists are very very gullible. They have no respect for you whatsoever and are just stealing from you. It's as plain as that. The city is also very dirty and the broken roads and pavements are a serious health hazard especially at night. I won't be going back. It's the theft that got to me. The rest I can put up with, but all this fake socialist none sense is a joke. I know one thing though, Donald getting Bolsonaro to kick 8000 Cuban doctors and their paid salaries out of Brazil is going to hurt like hell. I met a lot of very unhappy Cubans during my long stay. Some people are getting very rich and a lot of poor people can see this and don't like it. Good luck Cuba, you are going to need it!!
    Yep Havana is done now, I threw in my hat after my visit 3 and a half years ago. Too many rip-offs and trouble with enjoying the ladies and having to feel like you have to constantly watch your back. Too bad. Prayers for the common Cuban along with Venezuelans.

    Ya. Havana is a shit show, but it gets under your skin. I like it and I hate it.

    Cuba is going into the toilet. Their ability to import goods has declined significantly. You can see it on the store shelves. You can see it in the shortage of cans to even package their own beer production.

    This situation got a major impetus a few years ago during a corruption crackdown. They fired alot of middle managers who were corrupt BUT those managers stole a little bit, comparatively speaking. When those managers were fired and not replaced, everyone below working in the stores stole just about everything. You could see it in the streets at that time, Cubans had disposable income, they were spending it at the clubs, at the restaurants. The problem was that all that government inventory generated very little income to the state, the state had little money to rebuy goods for sale. The spiral that you are seeing today is the result of that massive firing.

    Exactly, I've ranted about the Police situation a couple times here, nothing short of highway robbery going on in Havana. The taxi drivers are a huge problem as well.
