Love travelling family and our hosts Viñales, Cuba

Viñales, Cuba

Viñales, Cuba When people ask us which three places to see in Cuba, we always answer Havana, Viñales, and Trinidad, as each of these places has its own unforgettable flavor.

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).
