afraid of sea urchins
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.

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
