We are home, relatively rested and still reliving the memories of our spectacular trip to Cuba! Thank you so much for the incredible itinerary....the sights, the timing, the locations were all perfect! It's hard to choose a favorite....every place, every activity is a contender!
Our group definitely enjoyed the New Year's Eve party at Odette's lovely home. That evening will be one of our most memorable NYE nights ever! The entertainment was spectacular, food delicious and hosts delightful.
Our lunch with the professor was most interesting! What a nice guy! And, so interesting to hear his perspective on issues and Cuba's future. Everything went seamlessly and we appreciate your time and everyone else at the company that helped.
Finally, I think I speak for our entire group when I say the trip would not have been the same without our good fortune in having David as our guide and Yasnier as our driver! Spending our week with them most definitely contributed to how wonderful our trip was! Cuba is a wonderful country and we are all so glad we went....and happy we chose Cuba Travel Adventures Group!
