Arriving in Havana

Long queues at Havana Airport immigration - took 2 hours from disembarking plane to getting in a cab. They are individually testing each person for a temp being scared of Ebola. Even at each stop on the ship the Cuban health authorities come aboard and temp test every person on their forehead before going ashore. Paid for Cuban visa at Cancun airport $US25 cash only before departure. Booked business class on Air Cubana (an extra $100 per person) but skipped a 2 hour check in queue as a result - well worth it for this alone. We were not asked for our proof of insurance anywhere (although we did have it), not even boarding ship. Cabs are a fixed price 25 CUC to anywhere in Havana (about a 30-40 minute ride). Pay the driver at the end. Cabs at the airport were plentiful. Some (few) are airconditioned, otherwise the windows are open all the way!
