A few kilometres from our next stop is Playa Giron, part of the more famous Bahia de Cochinos or Bay of Pigs, known for the historical importance in 1961 when the newborn socialist government got attacked by an American offensive in this same area. Fortunately, for Fidel, the capitalists were defeated and the place is […]

We took the recommendation of our host, El Maestro, and decided to do a tour around the spectacular nature of Vinales in the back of a horse. Poor Joao, it was his first time to trust his bones to a furry creature. Maestro called a friend specialised in this type of touristic roundabouts and by 2pm we […]

After staying in the metropolis, some days in the nature are more than welcome so, following the normal Cuba tour, we headed to Pinar del Rio, a province in the eastern extreme of the island that is famous for the tobacco plantations and the production of rum. The bus trip couldn’t show more the contrasts between the two […]

We had a similar feeling in Jamaica, and now in the Cayman it’s exactly the same, animals just wander freely around the islands and can show up anywhere. Ok, in South of Europe we have cats and dogs, in the north foxes and squirrels, but in the Caymans we have lizards, chickens, land crabs and […]

We reached our first big destination, our intended hub of travelling, our headquarter for Central America travelling, and last but not the least, our paradise. You smell it when you arrive, the peace in the air, the relaxation of the people, the good vibe, the ‘yes I have a good life’ face on everyone. We […]

After leaving Jamaica a after taste of sweet and sour comes to the mind, unfortunately more sour than sweet. Maybe we did not go to the right places, maybe we did not do the right things, maybe we did not study enough but the truth is: we were happy to leave. This top 10 of […]

After the long road trip that went without any critical incident we arrived to Kingston, the Jamaican capital where we would take our flight to Cayman Islands. Because we were driving we could cross the city south to north and have a taster of it, the result was our rational decision to stay put. We […]
