    Spontane Abreise nach Baracoa

    December 10, 2019 in Cuba ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Da uns Santiago de Cuba nicht zusagte und die Casa auch nicht wirklich gut war, entschlossen wir uns kurzerhand nach Baracoa zu fahren. Also ein privates Taxi bestellt und eine der besagtesten schlimmsten Strecken in Kuba in Angriff genommen.Read more

    Boca de Yumurí

    December 11, 2019 in Cuba ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Heute ging es mit Guide zur Kakaoplantage, zu einsamen Stränden und viel wilder Natur. In viel Ruhe konnten wir die Natur genießen und uns über das kubanische Leben erkundigen, da der Guide in der damaligen DDR arbeitete.Read more

    Parque National Alejandro de Humboldt

    December 12, 2019 in Cuba ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Am Morgen ging es von Baracoa aus zu Kubas eindrucksvollsten Nationalpark, der mach dem deutsche Naturforscher benannt ist. Viele endemische Tiere und Pflanzen wachsen und leben nur in diesem Ökosystem. Auf dem stark eisenhaltigen Boden stehen mehr als 600 Quadratkilometer unberührter Regenwald, mit Ausnahme von ein paar Wegen, die mit natürlichen Mitteln errichtet worden sind. Vor knapp 220 Jahren erkundete Humboldt dieses Paradies, das schon seit einigen Jahren zum Unesco Weltkulturerbe gehört.Read more

    Baracoa

    July 21, 2019 in Cuba ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    ברקואה קובה, הגענו בטיסה של מטוס קטן עם פרפלורים חיכה לנו שם נהג "מונית" לא סתם בגרשיים.
    בא לקחת 5 אנשים עם 5 מזוודות ומויצילות באופניים !!!! למחרת יצאנו לטיול יום בו ביקרנוו במטעי קקאו, קפה ומשם בסירה נכנסנו לאזור טבע פרעי עם קניון ונהר לשיט ורחצה
    לסיום עצרנו בחוף ים מקסים עם עץ קוקוס נדיר עם גזע אחד שמתפצל לשני עצים. לטענת המדריך זה העץ היחיד שהתפצל לשניים.

    New Years Day!

    January 1, 2018 in Cuba ⋅ 🌫 0 °C

    A lovely chill day at Maguana beach with white sand and palm trees - 20km west of Baracoa.
    I hired a top quality plastic sunlounge which had seen better days for $2. Later on they charged me $1 for picking up the lounge and taking it to the spot on the beach I had picked.

    Marge sat in a hut and we were charged $3 for her chair. I think they just made numbers up.

    We are learning in Cuba to order ahead if you have any chance of eating when you want to and it worked like a treat. Some places you can wait for hours. Very tasty chicken cooked perfectly and salad. The tomatoes here are full of flavour and we are eating loads of them.

    Eventually back to town and a miracle occured at 5.30pm in the telecommunications office - no queue!!! So I rushed in and loaded up on internet cards. You can buy them from guys on the street but the price is double. So I saved about $7!! Yes this is how much we have to watch our pennies! We tried another ice cream parlour and gave dinner a miss. The servings here are huge so its either two meals a day or you share a plate.

    I walked around the town abit. Nice little town with some ugly soviet style unit blocks down by the water. The waterfront strip or malecon as they call it is just ugly concrete and soviet style unit blocks. Prime real estate!

    New Year's Eve

    December 31, 2017 in Cuba ⋅ ☀️ -12 °C

    We are staying in a lovely casa which is spotless. The hostess is very nice and has the most amazing collection of dresses.

    Bit of a chill day so after a leisurely start we head off to a hotel on the hill which has view and the main attraction wifi.

    Whenever you see lots of people standing around looking at their phones (usually in plazas) you know its a hotspot. There is no free wifi in Cuba. You buy an internet card for so many hours at $1US for an hour.

    We planned to catch a taxi but only a jeep was available which was impossible for mum to get in. After various charades the driver finally accepted this and got some random guy on the street to drive us in his car!

    Unfortunately mum left her backpack in the car. Nothing really of value except the actual backpack, mum's cancer council sunhat (borrowed from me) and my travelling umbrella which I also use to keep the sun off.

    So I bolt down the stairs that led to this hotel to where we caught the car but no luck finding this guy who I am not sure I would recognise from any other guy. Then I queue for an internet card but in cuba a queue doesn't mean much as the guard is letting lots of people skip the queue so I give up on that.

    Then back to the hotel. We attempt to order lunch but most stuff is unavailable (an indication it is state run!) so mum has a fruit salad and I have a nectar juice. State run.

    Then we sign onto the internet - yay! After leaving the hotel we hit the ice cream parlour and I walk around town abit.

    Dinner is at the tour guide's cousin's place abit out of town. The family didn't look very infused to have us even though we were paying quite alot for Cuban standards. We even had the sullen teenager who was obviously told he must sit through the whole thing!

    But the food and presentation were good. Our tour guide also gave us some salsa lessons. Next back to town to the only nightclub to see in the new year. Its a rooftop terrace with a view of the town square. A show was on.

    So happy new year to marge and I and everyone reading this blog!
