Holidays in Cuba
Just had to send an e-mail to say what a fantastic time we had in Cuba.
The rep in Guardalavaca (JODI) was fantastic.
One of the trips we went on was on our last day in Guardalavaca before we flew on to Havana, it was, we were told, a new trip that only The Holiday Place do. The trip was billed as "Inside the countryside tour".
We were given the option to drive our own 4X4 jeep as part of a convoy with a tour guide in the first & last jeeps.
We set off at 07:30am & did not return until 17:45pm.
What a full fun packed day it was, it started with a short drive to a lagoon where we were divided into pairs and given a jet ski (more of a mini sit on speed boat really) & set off on a ½ hour self drive jet-ski trip around the mangroves & out to sea.
From there it was out into the country to a cigar factory & then a hat making factory where we all received a free cigar & free straw hat.
Then it was off to a farm for a cup of real country style Cuban coffee, then to a ranch for a drink out of fresh coconuts, & a fruit buffet before a ½ hour horse ride, then lunch which was fresh spit roasted suckling pig accompanied by rice & salad, it was so good my eldest son who is almost 17 had FOUR helpings.Then some locals turned up for a afternoon Cuban party with live music.
Finally a drive back through the mountain villages where we could give presents to the children before returning to the hotel.
If I rate the "Inside the countryside tour" out of ten it would have to be 10+ !!
Please could you pass my thanks to Jodi in Guardalavaca & also forward this e-mail on to your Managing Director so that someone up high knows what a great job is being done by the resort reps.
Many Thanks for a great holiday.
