Many tourists from all over the world are attracted to Cuba – a distant and incredibly beautiful state located in the north of the Caribbean Sea. Before you go on vacation, it is recommended that you familiarize yourself with some of the features of this state that vacationers will encounter.
1. So, when planning a trip to Cuba, it is important to know that a flight to one of the major cities of this state (Havana, Varadero) takes an average of 12-13 hours (if you fly from Moscow or St. Petersburg). Accordingly, you should thoroughly prepare for such a long flight: stock up on entertaining materials (books, magazines, tablet, etc.), take earplugs, moisturizer, candy, necessary medicines, wear comfortable shoes and socks (to be able to take off your shoes in airplane).

The coast of Cuba, many years ago, was appreciated by Christopher Columbus. Cuba is a lot of small islands that are washed by the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. They are located between the Americas. The prices here are very low, so more and more tourists go to these places in order to have a good rest and enjoy the beautiful nature and the burning sun. But there are things that every guest of the islands should know about. These rules came in handy for our family and I will tell about them so that future tourists are thoroughly prepared.
1. Vaccinations. Before flying to Cuba, almost everyone is offered vaccinations against hepatitis A, diphtheria and tetanus. This was done many decades ago and is practiced today, although infectious diseases are not common now and the chances of getting sick are minimal. I note – they offer vaccinations, but in some way do not insist on them! If you want to make them, take care of this a month before departure, so that the body has time to develop immunity. The reaction is different for everyone and I do not want to spend the whole vacation in bed with temperature. Before departure, it is better to arrange the simplest insurance. Continue reading
What is Cuba? Cuba is a dream for a Russian tourist, a destination where many people would really like to go.
The increased interest on the part of our fellow citizens in this island is due to both rational and completely irrational reasons. So why is everyone so eager to get there?
1) This is unusual. Rest there is nothing to compare. This is not for you to fly to Turkey / Egypt / Spain / UAE. This is not even Thailand. This is a place that you can tell about acquaintances and unfamiliar people, and they will listen to you and listen to your every word; after all, these are stories about rest on the other side of the world, where “everything is different.” And it’s really “different” there. How exactly? You can talk for days …
2) This is cool. This is the island of freedom, on which rum, girls, cigars … and all in unlimited quantities. The dream of any bachelor Continue reading
Cuba for an ordinary tourist is a dream, a paradise, where all romantics want to visit. Firstly, this country is very far away, and this is not Egypt or Cyprus, where you can easily get a tour at a bargain price, it is expensive, but unusual. Secondly, it’s cool, because in most of Cuba it is associated with cigars, rum and beautiful girls. And thirdly, it’s really very beautiful there, beautiful places simply fascinate all tourists.
And so my dream came true in the summer of 2014, I spent two weeks on the island, which will forever remain in my memory.
My husband and I traveled on our own, preliminarily studied all the sights, travel features, carefully collected information. However, as it turned out later, we were not prepared because we had missed so many details.
We flew on a Moscow-Havana flight. Continue reading
Ayia Napa we chose on purpose. We wanted to relax in the beach-bar-disco mode. It’s difficult to come up with something better for this format. Based on their tasks, they settled not far from the port. In walking distance, we had everything we needed. Five minutes to the beach, ten minutes to the street of bars, immediately at the entrance to the hotel taverns of various orientations started, almost under the windows the amusement park rustled.
For those who want less noise, the Nissi district is probably more suitable. Walk to 40 minutes to go there. Therefore, there, probably, it is calmer and more children go there. Although the beach itself has loud music, a bar, a lot of youth. It is believed that Nissi Beach is one of the best beaches in Cyprus. We visited Nissi Beach once – we took a taxi. Nothing special. Yes, good sand, beautiful sea. There are a lot of people. Our city also had a nice beach and warm sea. No longer go. Continue reading
