VARADERO – CUBA
Varadero: the place to refocus the mind and re-energise the body. So, obviously that’s exactly what I did.
Worlds away from Havana, Varadero is a strip of resort after resort. But take a break away from the touristy life with a 2-day excursion. View the beautiful city of Trinidad and stay overnight at a hotel in the jungle. Cuba doesn’t have any wild animals so you’re safe from a lion jumping out and eating you for tea. This overnight stay doesn’t only mean your worlds away from Havana, but you’re also miles away from that 5 star resort. Let me put it this way, I didn’t take any photos of the hotel ’cause we were too busy catching cockroaches. Yeah, gross. But considering we’d just been in Havana, seen some the poorest people, and we do have a 5 star resort to go back to, it’s not really something to complain about. Plus, the adventure was totally worth the basic board…
Cuba has it all. Sun, sea, beach and city isn’t all this beaut country has to offer. For all you stimulation seeking companions out there, this is where your kinda life kicks in. If like us, there is only so much sun soaking, beach babein you can do, and you’re just itching to unleash your inner adventure, then you gotta do hike in Cuba. From trekking around, cave climbing to jumping into picturesque waterfalls our outdoor desires were fully satisfied.
If anyone knows the definition of how to have a good time, it’s Cubans. And oh my, their vibe is infectious. Jump on the catamarang boat, swim with dolphins, sunbathe on the beautiful island of KO Blanco and then have a boat party. The best bit? Free RUM (obvs)!
