These are the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen...and there are miles of them to explore! If you're looking for a relaxing holiday with crystal clear blue water and worm white sand, this is the place.
The Sol Pelicano hotel was decent enough, the rooms were clean, the beer and wine was plentiful, the staff was great and the food was quite good.
Again, the beaches are fantastic, and the reason to go. You do need to be aware of the nude beach though! If you walk down to the beach and turn right, people have there bathing suits on, turn left and walk a hundred feet and your hitting the clothing optional area, and in most cases the option is naked (not just topless).
I have to admit, I am not much of a nudist, but with miles of beach with no one around, we found ourselves naked more often then not! Turn right down the beach, across the rocks and you have your selves a great area to get rid of those tan lines or whatever else you want to do whilst naked and alone with your girl in the warm sunshine on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)!!!
The food was always great. The main complaints about Cuba are usually the food, but no worries here. They even had blue cheese one night!
The entertainment staff was good, activities were fun, but the pool is not heated and we found it a bit chilly if the sun was not out.
You can head into town by bus to the local disco (hotel staff), it was a good experience and lots of fun. You also need to head to the other beach Playa Sierena via scooter, jeep, or train and have the mojitos! The best I ever had!
We took a day trip into Havana. It was nice to see, but the flight back on the converted Cuban Cargo plane was a little sketchy. If your tour operator says they don't have the excursion you can simply go ask the Air Canada rep to book it for you (we went with Nolitours and that is what we did).
All in all it was a wonderful trip and we will be going back again!
