Off the beaten path
Sorry we missed this part of Cuba. Looks grand. I think your a budgeting well. Happy travels.

El Mirador, Soroa

Fabulous jungle!
The beauty of the jungle and waterfalls--incredible; the rain of the jungle--not so much. Good thing you're from rainy Vancouver and take it in stride; less so for us rainphobe Californians. Love your Ipad with books so much more than the 15 books in my pack, and reading on a jungly porch in the rain--perfect! I've read that the casas charge the same no matter how many people, ie $25, which I've never paid in my life. Is this frighteningly true?

Accomodation
Yes! As a single traveller, Cuba was way more expensive than it would have been for a couple, since you're paying the price of the room, not per person. I spent a lot more money on accommodation than I normally do!

We may need to return to Cuba
We didn't go to this town and it sounds like you have discovered a gem. Although I will say we loved Trinidad. In part due to the people we stayed with, as you know that makes all the difference.

The Boulevard

Cute, colorful streets
I've duly recorded this charmer for my trip to Cuba--my favorite places are often these small, untouristed ones. But when you told of those conversations, that must be a bit loud since they take place inside and outside of a house, it rather confirms what I've heard of Cuba--constant noise, constant music. Ok for three weeks, but yikes--somewhat intense.

The Boulevard

Choose your rooms wisely...
Yes Tara, you're right about the noise. I really noticed those conversations, hence writing about them, in Sancti Spiritus because my bedroom was right off the street. I wanted to be that close to the centre, so put up with it, but I'm normally a peace and quite kind of gal myself. I therefore spent a lot of time on the rooftop! People all live very close in these towns, add in the animals, children, very loud diesel engines from ancient vehicles, and it can get loud on the street. Thats where the quieter rooftops come into play!

Great music on the street in Trinidad!

Fantastic
Trinidad was our favorite town in Cuba. Thank you for the memories. What a great country.

Looks like my kind of place...
Between the puppies, those colourful streets and mojitos that make you sway after one sip...I think I would love Trinidad :)

Gorgeous photos
I had heard that buying bus tickets in Cuba required skills :) Havana looks fabulous, looking forward to your adventures in Trinidad.

The lady with the coins has some US coins thanks to us! Glad to know her enterprise/racket is still going strong.
5th June 2016

You guys would!!!!! Just helping out a collector!!!

Great little scam. Especially when the only tourists that go to Cuba are Canadians and European! Sure, she doesn't have any Canadian dinero. lmao
5th June 2016

That's what I thought too, in Cuba you're surrounded by Canadians! But still, She had a good thing going!

Sweet street dogs and annoying men
Welcome to Latin America where the dogs and the men all want you to take them home, and no where on these continents, can you put TP in the toilet! Trinidad looks so charming, I figured that if I had bus drama, I'd just visit Havana and here. However, good to hear that your next non-touristy place is also fab.

I could have definitely spent more time in Trinidad! Would have liked to check out the hills and the planation land in the surrounding area, next time!

"You want friend?"
I also enjoy travelling alone, and your romantic waiter reminded me of a similar experience in Penang. A couple of times I had dinner in a hawker center - The Red Garden - and I would get my dinner and order a bottle of Tiger beer from the beer waiter. (Yes, that's a real job.) Every time he would bring the bottle and two glasses, just in case I wanted his help finishing my beer.

So helpful those waiters! Thanks!

Old Havana Scene

Freak-out!
Having to plan ahead and wasting days trying to buy bus tickets--yikes! Thanks for the warning--I'll come during the lowest, rainiest season I can, so hopefully, I can just be my last minute self! Fine photos!

Old Havana Scene

Definitely!
Hey Tara, definitely do not do Cuba in January, I was shocked by having to plan ahead haha! In one of my last Cuba blogs I give tips and tricks for cuba travel, stay tuned!
1st June 2016

Fun! Good thing Javier/Julio showed up. I'm excited to read about the island, I didn't get there. Enjoy Trinidad, it was a photographers dream. Hike the hills if you can, it's beautiful up there.
