I just got back from my trip to Cuba yesterday, and I’m so excited to share my experience in Varadero and Havana Cuba with you. I haven’y created a travel vlog in a while so I’m sooooo happy to finally have a vlog for you to watch!
Here is the full Cuba Vlog:
Here are some important details from my trip:
-We took a direct flight from Fort Lauderdale to Varadero on Southwest
-You can purchase a visa at the airport at check in. This process takes about 10 minutes
-Our hotel we stayed at is the Barcelo Sol y Mar all inclusive resort. The food was terrible, but the location was great and it is walking distance to downtown Varadero where you can find more decent food 🙂
-We took a Cubatur day trip to Havana with a bus tour. It was a good experience, bring plenty of water and snacks, maybe an umbrella for rain or for shade (it gets HOT) and good walking shoes.
The beach in Varadero was AMAZING! The water was crystal clear and the sand was super soft.
Old Havana has a mixture of neighborhoods that are luxurious and gorgeous and remind me of modern day Spain, to some areas that look like they have not been updated since the 40’s.
Antique cars are EVERYWHERE. They at so much color and culture to Cuba and I loved seeing the unique cars, especially ones with polka dots or pink ones.
Che Guevarra is a very popular figure in Cuba, you can see images of him like this one everywhere.
Our tour guide told us that Cohiba and Montecristo are the best Cuban cigars. I didn’t purchase or try any but visiting a cigar shop in Cuba is a must.
