  • We got to the place where you can make a "interesting"boat ride for the "fee" of 12 CUC per person in the hope of enjoying the nature of Cuba. They took us on a boat by an artificial channel of 4 km. without any interest. The canal flows into a pond which we crossed hastily without seeing anything or hear any kind of explanation. We landed in a reconstruction of what would be a tahino village. The only explanation we were given was: "here's the bar and here have the souvenir shop". We are about 45 min. in wandering by a group of huts without any grace, one of which was a group of workers dressed up as Indians using mobile; to spend inside cottage painted us a few stripes in the eyes and we pass some branches for the body saying that it was to remove the bad epiritus. All without grace and with a degree of cutrez seldom seen. After this we returned to the pier and it is already. To see the crocodiles I have to pay other 5 CUC and one is shattered and unsafe facilities (the Wired is corroded by the lower part in a good way). That Yes, the souvenir shops and restaurant are very visible. In short, a haggler as many who are in Cuba. They think that they can charge what gives the win to tourists without giving any service. Employees show a lack of interest and a few desire to please that it would make them stay without working anywhere in the world. The nature of the area is certainly wonderful but does not show it. The cutrez can be to endure only if prices are consistent. ESPABILA CUBA!

  • Cienaga de zapata is the largest wetland of Cuba and the Caribbean and biosphere reserve. It is located in the province of Matanzas. You can go from Cienfuegos by 2-way, one by Yaguaramas and the other by the National Highway (departing from Havana should enter through the village of Jagüey Grande). It is an impressive place, here you can appreciate the beautiful coasts South of Cuba, its pristine beaches, as well as interact with its flora and fauna. Aboriginal settlements that seem to be taken from the stories of our books you can visit. There are many sites on the tour that I propose to visit, among them are the museo Playa Giron, Punta Perdiz, the Cueva de los Peces, Playa Larga and Guamá, places that you will always remember. I recommend it 100%.

  • Have state a few days in Varadero as complement to our stay in the Havana. We made the break into the area of Cienaga de Zapata, a beautiful and different natural enclave. We caught the boat that we transfer by treasure Lagoon to the island where you have recreated a Taino village. It was beautiful even though you must be careful with large mosquitoes. It was beautiful and interesting. The impressive crocodile farm. After a dip in the Caribbean, at Punta Perdiz where you can see lots of fish if you do snorkeling.
