My Trip To Cuba

MY CUBA EXPERIENCE

I recently went to Cuba on a fam. (in the travel industry that's the abbreviation for familiarization trip). Travel agents are required to do these frequently so we are up to date on what resorts/destinations have to offer our clients.

To give you an idea as to what we do while we are there I am going to share some of my itinerary that I had while in Cuba with you (it is to long to go through all of it).

Day.1 ~ Flight from Toronto to Camaguey.

Transfer to the Brisas Santa Lucia Resort (arrived @ resort @ 8:00pm), Dinner than bed.

Day.2 ~ The day starts @ 7:30am with Breakfast than a Hotel inspection of Brisas Santa Lucia, followed by hotel inspection of Club Santa Lucia.

Than we were off to one of my favaourite memories of Cuba, an excursion to the Rancho King where we were entertained by a Cuban rodeo and our ever comedic host Vincent. He also escorted us to an elementary school to have a look and see how they are taught; upon exiting the school we were than welcomed into the home of some locals to share in some coffee and treats. After our fantastic excursion we had one more resort to inspect The Club Caracol. 

Day.3 ~ 8:00am Check out of the Brisas Santa Lucia and do a 2 hour drive to Cayo Coco and check into the Sol Cayo Coco.

The day goes as follows...Inspection of the Sol Cayo Coco, inspection of Melia Cayo Coco, (lunch @ the Melia), Inspection of Hotel Pestana Cayo Coco, Inspection of Iberostar Mojito (dinner @ the Iberostar) back to the Sol Cayo Coco and bed.

Day.4 ~ 8:00am Drive to Tryp Cayo Coco have breakfast, inspection of said resort than off to inspect the Sol Cayo Guillermo (have lunch there) now off to inspect the Iberostar Daiquiri drive back to Sol Cayo Coco and have an hours "free time" so basically shower and get ready to head off to inspect the Playa Coco and have dinner there. Back to our resort for bed.

Day.5 ~ 7:30am breakfast than check out of our resort and head off on an 8 hr. drive to Varadero with a stop at the La Granjita. After a very long day of driving (with a few stops along the way) we finally make it to the Melia Marina Varadero @ 5:00pm. After checking in we do an inspection of the resort than we are off to inspect the Paradisus Varadero and have dinner there. Finally make our way back to the Melia for some much needed sleep.

Day.6 ~ 7:15am breakfast and than the games begin again for another long day..Hotel inspection of the Hotel Delfines, Palma Real, Barcelo Solymar, Villa Cuba (we also had lunch here), Sol Sirenas Coral, Iberostar Playa Alameda (dinner here) than back to our resort for bed.

Day.7 ~ 7:30am breakfast, Hotel insection of Blau Marina Varadero, H10 Ocean Varadero El Patriarca, Brisas del Caribe, Superclub Breezes Varadero (lunch here), Iberostar Laguna Azul, Paradisus Princesa del Mar and it is now 5:00pm and we return to our resort to shower and get ready for our special farewell dinner and speeches. No need to go to sleep as we have to check out of our resort @ 1:30am to make our 2:15am departure to Havana Airport.

Needless to say it's a VERY busy week but I loved it and am now that much more knowledgeable about Cuba and the locals.  Thank you to Hola Sun for hosting this Fam!
