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 […]

CUBA! {PART ONE – THE RESORT}

From February 8-15, 2019 I had the pleasure of going to Cuba! I LOVED it! You do not go to Cuba to shop, to eat at super fancy restaurants, or to stay at 5-star resorts. Then, why do you go to Cuba? You go to Cuba for the beautiful scenery, the beaches, the old cars, […]

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 […]
