My Cuba Tour - Day 1
After a week in Havana learning some Spanish, talking with the Cubans, having good drinks, dancing... I was ready to start my 15 day Original Cuba Tour that I got from Cuban Adventures.We were a small and varied group of 6 people included the tour leader guide (Tatiana), I put her name in brackets because she is a case apart! The most crazy and funniest person I have met in my life. The nationalities in my group were 2 Australian, 2 Romanians and 1 Brazilian.
|We were leaving Havana|
|Here is my group, we were getting in the Bay of Pigs|
The Bay of Pigs now is a calm and nice place for snorkelling. That’s the things I like most in Cuba, all it Revolutionary history mixt up with this awesome environmental Island.
|Yes! The water is completely transparent|
This little break for a quick history lesson and a bit of rest was good because, I could get better know the group and enjoy this little piece of Cuba without pollution, completely natural.
We arrived in Cienfuegos in the evening. We left our bags at the Casa particular, had quick stop for a coffee and went for walking in the boulevard. It’s in the central city (Pueblo Novo) one of the main tourist places. After we had a good explanation about the city and take some photos we went back to the Casa particular have a shower, dinner and straight to bed.
On the next day in the morning we
went to visit the Palacio del Valle in Punta Gorda, it’s a peninsula with a lots
of 1950’s houses.

Cienfuegos has the most European architecture city in Cuba. It was founded by the French and also is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is really pretty and charming. However, it’s feel to me a little be different to the other cities in Cuba, I couldn’t identified or related the place with the rest of my tour in Cuba. I recommend to go visiting the city for a day or two.
