Just checked AI’s this am (as usual) and for the first time in memory, Cuban 3* and Cuban 4* are more expensive than DR and close to Mexico and others.
I won’t be returning to Puerto Plata at any price but it seems to me that prices for Cuba have risen this year and other countries are lower. When I can book on the Mayan Coast in Mexico at a 4* with far better food & drink at the same price as good Cuban 4*, there is not much to think about IMHO. Not sure if this is just another weird blip or a real trend.
Not trying to start an anti-Cuban fight but I’ve been to a lot of AI’s and the comparison of food & drinks in Mexico vs. Cuba is not even close.
