Marina Hemingway availability

Aloha
I am trying to get info on availability on marina Hemingway.
I have tired to email the marina but keep getting a mail not deliverable message. I have tried two different email.

rpublicas@prto.mh.cyt.cu
comercial@prto.mh.cyt.cu

We are wanting to see if they will have availability for the first week of
March. I have heard the cost is about .50 a foot.
Thanks for any info you may have about availability.

Re: Marina Hemingway availability

Was just there-they were very far from full even with the Miami-Havana race. I understood from the long termers there that that was often the case (until america Cuba relations open fully). You might be safe to just chance it if you don't hear back.

Overflow dock space lacks electric and water but is cheaper, and if it doesn't matter to you ...

Re: Marina Hemingway availability

Brownoarsman thanks for the up to date info. That will work great for us as we don't need power or water.
Thanks to everyone else as well. We will keep tying to get more info.

Re: Marina Hemingway availability

Just as a heads up in case you haven't traveled the region; carry your own toilet paper with you everywhere you go. The conditions at Marina Hemingway aren't great. The city is apparently having a water pressure problem, so the toilets don't always flush (or people aren't flushing them, or they aren't plumbed for inflow). Feces and other detritus was often piled above the rim. I say the rim, because few, if any, of the toilets had seats.
The showers always seemed to have pressure (not sure how when the toilets were out) and hot water. However, I'd recommend wearing shower sandals, as where do you think all the gents who forgot toilet paper run to clean up?

Pro tip is to knock politely at the women's bathroom at the hotel acuario by the pool, always nice and never occupied. Or, the bathrooms at the little restaurant by the yacht club are nice, but not open all the time. There, just saved you a couple miles of very desperate walking! Enjoy the trip, watch out for the touts, and most tourism services including taxis are negotiable (15-20 CUC is a good floor price from Marina to downtown habana). If you have a chance, change your USD to loonies or euros before you go-Fidel has a special 10% tax on USD exchanges.
