Mail within Cuba - (5 replies)

Does anyone know if the mail system within Cuba is reliable? A friend who is going would mail a package for me from Habana to Santa Clara, but I'm not sure about the reliability of the mail inside the country. Thanks.

3. correos Cubano

I already posted that it took months for one of my postcards to go about 65 miles in Cuba. Also, I introduced my Cuban friends from Guantanamo to Cuban friends in Havana. Each has sent the other a package as a present and neither one has been received. It is now 4 months and counting!

4. mail

I mailed a dictionary from a mile from Dorval Airport in Montreal 4/2 to Playa Larga-near Zapata Swamp, I was told by a second hand party that it arrived around 4/20. I have no way of verifying whether this is true.
