So much culture, each little restaurant I visit was full of music and fabulous decoration. Cuban Colonial Zone is beyond beautiful. This are Cuban criollas!

 

About my trip.  I stayed in 2 different hotels. One in La Habana, Cuba. Hotel Parque Central 5Star absolutely beautiful. I also went to another city called Varadero.

I visited La Bodeguita del medio,  La Floridita, la casa del Daiquiri, Rosalia de Castro, Parisien Cabaret. Habana Vieja, Moderna, Plaza La Revolucion, La Universidad de La habana, la Imagen de Che and a city tour of the  Habana Moderna!

 

The last three days of the trip we stayed a Iberostar Laguna Azul all inclusive.

Varadero is well known for having clear water beaches! And it is true! Varadero has amazing beach ao warm and very clean! I loved the beach! We enjoyed it!

I decided to stay in Hotels because I did not want to take the chance to go to explore in a country that I have never been before. You go for what you want!

The first three days i stayed in Hotel Parque Central located it at La habana! 5 star hotel! Beautiful and cozy! Amazing food and drinks! My reservation included Breakfast and Dinner!

We did a city tour for three hours and then we ate in La Vitrola! This restaurant was included in my tour! Live music, Food was amazing and drinks too! Besides Mojito Cuba is also known for having great Daiquiri! Oh My God guys you must try!

Here are few pictures of La Habana Vieja. Cuba has a lot of history! I can not remember everything but one this is that Cuna stole my heart!

This is a coco taxi! Very common method of transport in Cuba for turist. Most of Cuban people walk!

10 CUC for rides!

Cuba es un pais super seguro!

Le tengo super miedo a los aviones! Si, pero me encanta viajar, conocer culturas, conocer gente nueva, en esta ocasion le toco a Cuba! Un pais lleno de cultura y arte! Siempre me han gustado las aventuras! Trato siempre de escoger destinaciones para visitar cada ano. Este ano en la lista tenia a Cuba. Sin lugar a dudas un pais maravilloso! Donde hay muchisima gente chula y agradable! En esta ocasion mi esposo cumplia años y por eso decidimos ir! Fue su regalo pero tambien el mio jajaja! Lo disfrute tanto como el! Pueden notarlo?

Quisieras ir a Cuba, esta ha sido mi mejor opcion de todos los tiempo. Cuba es uno de los paises mas visitados ultimamente. Se disparan visitas a cuba en los primeros 5 meses que lleva el ano!

Cuba ha sido sin lugar a dudas un pais que ha dejado muchas memorias en mi! Cuba esta lleno de mucha cultura, muchas personas con talento, mucho arte, playas hermosas y lugares fascinante para pasar un rato agradable! Una de las cosas que mas me gusto es la antiguedad de la ciudad, los carros antiguo y la amabilidad de las personas!

Mi primer noche visite Rosalia de Castro! Un show con musica en vivo y por $30 CUC  entras y te dan 3 tragos de bienvenida! Adivinen el trago MOJITOS!

El segundo dia hicimos el City tour a pie por tres horas, donde caminamos toda la habana vieja y luego hicimos un recorrido en carro descapotable en este momento la lluvia no nos dejo diafrutar del Paisaje pero la experiencia fue super chula! Visitamos la imagen del Che (la lluvia no me permitio tirar una foto pero si le tire a la imagen).

Los ultimos tres dia del viaje fuimos a Varadero a 2.5 horas de la habana, el hotel era todo incluido. Lo mas sorprendete es la HERMOSA PLAYA que tiene Varadero! Aguas cristalinas y muy limpia!

Algunos consejos!

Agua solo de botella

Solo dinero en efectivo

Asegurese de dar propinas! Las personas alla viven de eso!

El internet es limitado! Cuesta 1-2 CUC por 1 hora en lugares especificos!

Les recomiendo hacer un tour, es mas seguro y asi pueden disfrutar mas! No necesitan mas de 5-6 dias para hacer todo esto!

Si desean saber quien me hizo el tour escribanme a mi Instagram @scarlemmateo y con gusto le paso la informacion!

Universidad de La Habana
