CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

La Isla Grande is a full on exploration of a fascinating and curious country. It covers a lot of ground and involves some long days on the bus but in terms of giving an overview of the whole country it represents an excellent option!

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

Hallo Exodus Team,Since I got back I've not stopped telling all my friends how wonderful Cuba is.  I explained that this wasn't your 'Thompson's' style holiday where you don't get to see much of what Cuba is really like.  Instead it was a 14 day real life Geography lesson, where instead of being boring it was learning all about this country in a uniquely exciting way.  And all mixed in with great sea swimming where you just melt into water that is the ideal temperature, sometimes with tropical fish (no sharks!) swimming around you.  The there is the food.  Who said that Cuban food was basic. The Cubans know how to cook!  I guess that a lot of the great experience that I, plus the rest of the group I travelled with had, is down to hard work of the local team, who find the good restaurants and places where the down to earth Cuban music is played. Well done.PS Cornwall isn't bad either!

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

What we liked: The people, forest walking especially in the Sierra Maestra to Fidel Castro's hideout, the old colonial architecture, and the multi-coloured houses and palaces. Transport - old cars, lorry buses, bullock carts, bicycle taxis, horse and cart taxis.No so good: Standard of plumbing: having to put all toilet paper in a bin rather than the toilet. No water at times to flush toilet or have a shower.  Water dripping from room ceiling - though compensated for by hotel management with a bottle of rum!!Lot of driving but the coach was comfortable and air conditioned and Ernesto our driver was an excellent driver and we did get to see a lot of the countryside.
