It’s easy to acquire a romantic notion of Cuba, and especially Havana, given all the images of the hot-colored classic cars, the cigar-smoking mafiosos of motion pictures, and the tasty drinks and lively music of places like the Buena Vista Social Club. And somewhere off in dreamland are images of beaches that U.S. citizens are […]
As excited as we were to visit Cuba for the first time, we were even more psyched for plans to hike its National Parks and see a variety of places across the western half of the island. Like a lot of people, our concept of Cuba’s topography was sketchy. Mountains? UNESCO Biospheres? Protected species? Yes, […]
Looking back on all the photos I made while we were in Cuba, I wish we’d stayed longer, and that I’d made even more. It’s a fascinating place, and visual in the extreme–especially the people and the colors. We’ll be going back, and seeing more. Soon I hope. In the meantime, hope you like these.

And, there’s rum. Mojitos, daiquiris, and shots of dark Havana Club Añejo, all chased with a strong Bucanero […]

We’ve been doing a fair amount of hiking on our Cuba Unbound People to People tour of Cuba. Including a steep descent through a national park path to this stunning waterfall at Vegas Grande. A couple of our tour mates brought their bathing suits for a refreshing dip in the cold water after the sweaty […]
This is a rather quick post. There will be others from both of us with more detailed impressions of Cuba. However, internet here is extremely rare and slow. So, while I have some in our hotel, I’m just going to let you have a first look, though ten photos I’ve processed so far. BTW, we’re […]
