I'm not ready to forget the richness of the landscapes and the kindness of Cubans
Tourist currency really makes you feel like a tourist
My first big trip of 3 week in backpack to explore this island which has the reputation of being lulled by music, the sea and the kindness of Cubans.
It is truly an island of contrast where, unfortunately, inequalities are present. Tourism is the main source of income for Cubans, so Cubans can sometimes be oppressive with tourists.
During 3 week, it was too short to visit all the Island so we had to make choice ! We decided to don't go in the south-east of Cuba. Being in a rush to travel is not a pleasure, I love to take time.
If you have 3 weeks, I would advice you to go :
We avoided the skip Varadero, too touristic even if the beaches seems very beautiful.
Despite everything, there is a very good atmosphere on this island where the smile is present on every face.
Gran enamoramiento de los cubanos, su amabilidad, su forma de vida, su sonrisa y la música!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Don't make too much plan regarding the booking of your Casa Particular because you will always get a contact from the previous casa
How was the food?
Cuba is not known for his gastronomy but you can always find something ;)
What tips would you give a friend?
If you are a girl, be careful because the Cubans can be oppressive, they like to flirt with tourists
Bus or Taxi (always negotiate)
Cuba has 2 different money (one for tourist and one for locals) ! So don't be surprise if you pay more for some things
