Here’s my first post about my favourite destination, Cuba which I am very excited to share with you! There is something about this small island that makes you forget about everything else and just makes you go ‘la vida loca’. I don’t know if the best part is the crystal beaches calling out or the never ending dancing sessions or the fact that it makes you feel that your in 1950’s. I could go on and on about the local food delicacies and the hospitable attitude of the local people and still not do justice to it as it something you have to experience yourself. But what I can tell you are two of the must places to visit.
Havana, the capital of Cuba is a vibrant city with a rich historical background. The old part of Havana has got these amazing museums with historical exhibits that gives us insight on the Cuban revolution. The newer parts of Havana or ‘La Habana’ as the locals call it have a string of tourist attractions and white sand beaches.
Varadero is a resort city about an hour away from Havana and is filled with tourists nested in the fourteen 5 and 4 star resorts trying to catch the sun whilst sipping on their ‘Cuba libres‘. The resorts themselves pride in providing multiple entertainment forms to their guests but this may not be for you if your looking to jump headfirst into the local culture.
Well… I feel I have blabbered enough, but please do feel free to contact me if you want to know more about this beautiful country. Watch out for my next blog post where I will be writing my experiences at the magical Canadian Rockies.
