I can easily say that Cuba was one of the best trips in my life. It’s so much more than just paradise beaches. We fell in love with kind people, salsa, street music, ropa vieja, old cars and beautiful nature. Life without constant internet connection was great, communicating in broken Spanish and sign language was fun and dancing the night away in a local cave was just brilliant. We felt 100% safe during the whole trip, and walking home from parties in the middle of the night was just like walking in my home town. The attention on the streets didn’t feel intrusive and hearing how beautiful we are a few times a day was a really great ego boost.
Our trip started and end ended in Havana. At the beginning, we were still a bit lost, and we overpaid for most of the stuff, but when we returned at the end we haggled like a

We stopped at Playa Larga for one night, so we split a long ride from Vinales to Trinidad in two parts. We didn’t expect much from it, but when we arrived to our
You must visit Trinidad if you go to Cuba, I promise that it will not disappoint. We spent our first day at Playa Ancon that looked just like paradise, and spent the remaining two days exploring sugar cane plantations, went horseback riding to the beautiful waterfall and tried a local Zipline. Here we tried our first salsa lesson, that was taking place in the teacher’s living room and it was quite a funny experience. After the lessons we danced the night away in Rincon de la Salsa and the next night in disco Alaya that is located in a cave. Lot’s of cave parties for us!
We spent two nights in Varadero for heavenly beaches, but sadly we didn’t have the best weather. Beach was great, but that’s about it. If you’re thinking about skipping Varadero, do it! You can find even better beaches in Cuba. We decided to find the best spot on the beach with bar and cocktails, but that turned out to be a hard job since most of the beach is reserved for resorts! Because of that we spend almost half a day on a hop on hop off bus, that promises the best beach views, but it’s really just a bus that goes from one resort to another.
