Bellagio, I hope so too but doubt it. I will enquire when I check in at departure and make sure I take a note of it. Then if there is any problems on the return (which I anticipate if we haven’t paid before leaving) I will contact Westjet and let them know that they messed up. Last November people were angry about something, rather small in my opinion, on our flight. A few days later I was surprised to receive an email from Westjet saying that they messed up and gave us 20% off on our next flight. Well thank you very much, waited for a seat sale and used those coupons….$943. return from Vancouver for 2 people!

I’ll be watching all the forums for the next week for more information.

CubaJack, that’s what we’re hoping too. I did have the agent put a note on our file that we will not be checking our emails while we’re gone, so if they don’t notify us before we leave there could be a problem of who / where we pay upon leaving. WS agent contacted their help desk and they didn’t know what was going to happen. If I haven’t heard from Westjet before we leave maybe, (even though we are not Westjet Vacation customers) I’ll find a rep at another hotel before we leave to find out more.
I spoke with WestJet regarding the departure tax. We booked in January, departing April 27 returning May 22. Was on the phone for quite some time as the agent. Seems we are in a "gray zone" and WestJet at this point has no idea if we’ll be paying in CUC’s upon departure or CAN $ upon check in. Her advice was to make sure we had 50CUC and Canadian $. I think Bellagio is in the same "gray zone" as us, anyone know what are other airlines doing.I suspect this will all play out while we’re away. We’ll be sure to get to the airport (both ends) early in case we have a problem. I cannot imagine WestJet eating this, especially since we only paid $943 CAN (air only) for both of us return from YVR.
Just saw this on WOW Cuba’s FB page. ¬†One less line up when leaving Cuba, I can handle that!"Airport departure tax changes coming soon. We received notification today that the airport departure tax counters in Cuba will be eliminated beginning May 1, 2015. Effective immediately, the $25 CUC airport tax will begin to be charged by airlines as part of the airfare/fees collected in advance. Sounds efficient enough to me!"

Hawkins cheezies, the little bags, so good with beer in the afternoon. Generally don’t eat them at home so it’s our vacation treat! When we’re cycling we always have Clif bars and a couple of bags of peanuts for quick energy. There is no way I’m gonna eat a peso pizza and then try to ride with a stomach full of dough!

I have no problem helping people with cycling, keeping in mind that we are not heavy duty cyclists Most of what we learned before embarking on our first cycling trip I learned from other forums. I will however, not answer questions that are so vague (ie. where should I cycle) that it is evident the poster has not done any research him or herself. I’m not being nasty, I just cannot get over how many people post such questions and it is obvious that they have done no research themselves.As for the PACSAFE. After our first cycling trip I had read about them on another forum and began to research. I felt that we really needed to keep our documents, money, credit cards and cameras safe. Apparently they are knife proof and very durable. Well wasn’t I the lucky one who went to a shop in our town and found them on a clearance! I think marked down 70% from the regular retain. We ended up with the one that is like a hanging toiletry bag, it is able to hold everything we want and we have a special cable lock and lock it to the bathroom sink or as another poster mentioned, to the bed post and under the sheets!I suspect you could take it to the beach and lock it up but we’ve never bothered. We do however use it inside safes when they are available. Ours would also fit a iPad mini as well as cameras, passports and money.

Hope that helps

Johnny, we have one. Have used it for our cycling travels, text me and I’ll tell you about it.
