CUBA! {PART FOUR – CORAL BEACH}

On the last day of our trip we went snorkelling at Coral Beach. We had to hire a cab to drive us there as it was not close to our hotel. It was an interesting experience and definitely not like any snorkelling experience I had had before. We hired a ‘guide’ to take us out […]

CUBA! {PART THREE – HAVANA}

On the Tuesday, after our Seatour, we headed out from our hotel to a private tour to Havana. The tour was quite affordable considering it was a full day and it was private, which meant we did not have to fight through a group of people to hear what we were being told.  THE CAR […]

On the Monday after we arrived, we went out on a Seatour (we booked it through Sunwing and the excursion was called “Seatour Zone 1”). It was a day of snorkeling and then a few hours at private white sandy beach (‘Cayo Blanco’) with a buffet lunch.  It was a lot of fun going out […]

Today was more of a relaxing day. First, we got up to make it to the Salt River by 9am. We brought our own double tube and portable miniature pump. We did stop 1-2, which is about 2 hours. We would’ve went further but my legs were starting to feel like they were burning, even […]

Day 1 Arizona Vacation: Arrival
