Cycling in Cuba is a great way to get fit, get around, see lots & have an adventure! People are very friendly & helpful. Brings snacks if you are cycling! Staying in casa particulares will almost guarantee you get a good feed if you have your meals at the casa but the motels & hotels serve up less satisfying meals.
West of Santiago, Cuba is a remote, beautiful stretch to cycle with hardly any traffic, no Casa Particulares and not much food! Bring energy bars, peanuts etc from home. It's worth bringing a water filter as well since we could not buy mineral water at the motel we stayed at. There were lots of mosquitoes at night all along the coast so bring your insect rep. Some parts of the road next to the sea had been washed away but you'll be fine on a mountain bike everywhere. We had racing bikes and had to take it slow to avoid punctures but it was only stretches of 100 meters, no more. Happy cycling!
