“Our week was packed with adventure.”

Traveling to Cuba with Steve was a wonderful experience for my father, Frank and I.

We especially were impressed with the accommodations and the location of our casa within walking distance to the Malecon and Old Havana. The view of the city and the bay was world class. The owners of the apartment were so gracious and friendly.

Guiding us through the city and recommending places of interest, restaurants and historical sites was invaluable. With your assistance we were able to do an excursion to the countryside and visit the most beautiful and interesting scenery. We even had lunch at an organic farm overlooking the valley from the porch of a primitive home.

Seeing the oxen, horses and donkeys carting people around was quite amusing. Visiting a tobacco plantation was a first.

Our week  was packed with adventure.  Some highlights were enjoying the musicians, seeing a Tropicana musical show at the Hotel National, visiting the home of Ernest Hemingway, dining Cuban style and using the bicycle taxis to get around.

An exceptional bonus was the opportunity to spend the day with a photo journalist that was there to do a story on historical building restoration. We were escorted by an engineering professor to several sites that are currently being restored.

Thank you for this memorable journey!
