16 Sep, 2018 in Cienfuegos

Coming down from Havana and Vinales to explore a bit of central Cuba, I only had a day to spend in Cienfuegos, but even during that day I was able to see and explore quite a lot, much in thanks to my very friendly and efficient Airbnb host. After taking half a day to explore Castillo […]

28 Aug, 2018 in Cienfuegos

Coming down south from Havana Cuba to explore the southern coastline, I had very limited time to visit Cienfuegos and see the area. I arrived at my airbnb with a lovely local host, and asked for help in trying to make the most. With his help, I was able to really see a lot of the […]

14 Jul, 2018 in Vinales

When visiting Cuba I landed in Havana and spend a few days exploring, and I then headed out for a circular tour of Cuba, starting from northwestern Cuba in the Vinales region. It’s a beautiful country side with lots to see and explore, and some people linger for long. I did a daytrip from Havana […]

14 May, 2018 in Cienfuegos

I arrive in Cienfuegos without a plan, last minute down from Havana, and made my first stop at the Airbnb to leave my luggauge. I was greeted with a cold lemonade, a quick overview explanation of what’s available in the area. After figuring things out in the Cienfuegos area, I was heading town towards Trinidad and asked […]

14 Mar, 2018 in Trinidad

Trinidad was definitely one of the highlights of the trip to Cuba. An old colonial Spanish style town, lots of old buildings, bustling with cafes, restaurants, markets, and music. There are quite a few things to do in the area (e.g., Torre de Manaca Iznaga & Los Ingenios Valley), but there are also quite a few […]

23 Feb, 2018 in Trinidad

Trinidad is a lovely colonial town, but with a dark history. The day following my arrival I took a private taxi guide to take me around the nearby highlights, without really looking into what it’s going to be about. To my great surprise it was a day dedicated to the sugar slavery taking place in […]

5 Feb, 2018 in Varadero, Visions

The last stop on my trip to Havana, just before wrapping up the two weeks roaming around this fascinating land, was in expat mecca Varadero beach east of Havana on the northern coastline. It’s essentially a very long beach stretch with fluffy white sand and translucent blue waters. I was based a bit outside the tourist […]

28 Jan, 2018 in Santa Clara

Santa Clara is often skipped when traveling in Cuba, and I can understand why. Compared to the other destinations in Cuba, it’s unimpressive, and the tourist highlights may seem disappointing. Perhaps the only reasons people do make it over is to hear a bit about revolutionary hero Che Guevara and visit his exaggerated Mausoleum and the near by […]

17 Jan, 2018 in Trinidad, Visions

After starting off my Cuba travels up north in Havana and Vinales, I made it down to explore the center of Cuba, stopping over at Cienfuegos and El Nicho national park, and finally arriving at the very lovely Trinidad. It’s a very nice colonial town, with lots of arts, restaurants, cafes, live music, and magical […]

Coming down from Havana and Vinales to explore a bit of central Cuba, I only had a day to spend in Cienfuegos, but even during that day I was able to see and explore quite a lot, much in thanks to my very friendly and efficient Airbnb host. Once I arrived, a taxi driver took […]
