Best Beaches in Cuba

Best Beaches in Cuba One of the reasons (and there are thousands of them) why we love Cuba is because no matter in which point of the island you are there are not more than 100 km to some beach. And this is the luxury not many countries have. If you ask people, what beaches […]

Che Guevara, Plaza de la Revolución, Santa Clara, Cuba

Santa Clara: Hasta siempre Comandante Che Guevara

Ernesto Che Guevara has been my hero since I remember. First of all, he was born in Argentina, already enough to land in my circle of “love you forever.” Second of all, he had a passion and was an eternal dreamer. And I’m not writing it here to support communism or any other political agenda. […]

Things to do in Trinidad

From Cienfuegos to Trinidad we took the Viazul bus. One has to be at the bus stop 30 minutes earlier to “check in,” which is to change your receipt to the actual bus ticket. We as well had to check-in the luggage for 0,50 CUC per piece. The drive from Cienfuegos is not long, moreover […]

How to get there If you are planning your trip through Cuba and you are certain that you want to see Playa Larga and Trinidad, a two day stop in Cienfuegos , which is between these two cities, is definitely a great idea. There is a very comfortable Viazul bus connection from Playa Larga to […]

Cuba, Bay of Pigs

Playa Larga and Ciénaga de Zapata

About flamingos, flying fishes, food poisoning, and how we didn’t see crocodiles. Charles Dickens once wrote: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” and those worse times started for us around 2 am. One thing you have to know, my husband is not the one getting stomach problems during our […]

Our colectivo, Love travelling family in Cuba

Bay of Pigs, Playa Larga

About broken colectivos, dead crabs, mermaids, and how we didn’t see It coming… On  April 15th 1961 Americans started to put into life their masterplan: invade Cuba and overthrow Fidel Castro. It was a total fiasco from start to finish: planes missed their targets, Castro found out about the invasion in advance and “cleaned” the […]

Havana Vieja, Cuba

Havana diaries

OH! THE PLACES YOU’LL GO! We’ve been to great places, we’ve seen a lot, we’ve followed the dead and the alive, and now it’s time to do the most important thing in Havana: throw out your tour guide and follow your heart Being busy while visiting all recommended attractions, we often forget to have a […]

Plaza de la Revólucion, Che

Vedado

How do we start writing about Vedado? Well, it was a borough of Havana we liked the least (in comparison to the two others we stayed in for longer: La Habana Vieja and Centro Habana). In Vedado all old-Cuban-style glamour and charm is somehow lost under the concrete. Streets are overcrowded, busses and cars too […]
