Varadero & Matanzas

posted in: Beach life, Cuba | 0

“Although we have not spent a night in Varadero, we drove around this peninsula to try to understand what drives many people to this place. Everything here seems to be developed for mass-tourism. Huge hotels, a surplus of sourvenir stores and only tourists on the Streets. The white sand beaches are beautiful and if you like being pampered in a hotel for a week, you are the right place. But that is it”.

Cienfuegos

” We intended to enjoy the Bay of Cienfuegos for a couple of days but once there, we changed our mind. The dolphin-casa we wanted, seems to be located in the middle of a tourist hotspot, in between the many other casas on the square kilometer of Punta Gorda “

” Trinidad is a lovely colonial village. Very quiet, peaceful and home of very friendly (and slightly obtrusive) inhabitans. A peaceful tranquility is part of the atmosphere in this village surrounded by a beautiful green valley and rough mountains “

” South West of Havana, Autopista Este-Oeste takes you to two pieces of heaven on Cuba; Las Terrazzas and Viñales. Natural beauty and resources decorating these areas. Along with the friendly Cubans you will have a true Cuban experience “

Havana

” Havana, capital of Cuba and host of more than two million inhabitants. A terrific start of a journey through amazing Cuba. As soon as you leave the airport, it seems like time stood still. A decor of an ancient history movie. Everything is old; buildings, houses and people. The average car needs to be pushed forward the Flintstone way and more vehicles are stationed aside the road instead of on top of it. Fresh rain has just fallen down and a beautiful rainbow decorates the view. We drive into the narrow Streets of Old Havana while staring breathless out of the window of our cab. This country is completely different from everything we have ever seen before and easily exceeds our expectations. My heart is beating full of desire to discover this country “
