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
Tour trip stood out as the most “burning”. On Friday at eleven in the evening the tour package was confirmed, and on Saturday at four in the afternoon I went to the island of Aphrodite.
Cyprus met me with an evening stuffiness and a gentle breeze. I drove alone and was going to devote my vacation to the excursion program. Which in the end did. This was facilitated by the extremely unfortunate location of the hotel. But, given the “burning” timelines, I had no choice – I went to where there were places. The hotel was located between Larnaca and the tourist zone, on Dekelia Road. Nearby is one store, one cafe, another hotel and … everything, perhaps. The beach is across the highway. Here the beach, in comparison with the rest of the Larnaca coastline, is better – bulk pebbles. On all coast in these places – silt, clay. The beach can be said to be wild. There is no tourism infrastructure. There are even no sunbeds with umbrellas. But just from this I didn’t suffer much – I managed with a towel. Continue reading
After seeing the weather forecast in Cyprus at the end of May, we decided that it was time to go on vacation! The sea was quite warm (about 24 degrees), and due to the fact that it is shallow in Larnaca, the water near the shore was like fresh milk. During the day the air warmed up to 35 degrees, but the nights were pretty cool, so they did not use air conditioning in the room.
Since it is quite expensive to eat in Cyprus, we chose the all-inclusive system, fortunately, at the beginning of the season the prices are very pleasant. We lived at the Crown Resorts Henipa 3+ * hotel, seven kilometers from the center of Larnaca. The rooms are modest and in need of repair, but a large green area, excellent food and high-quality alcohol in the bar compensate for all other shortcomings. The sea is across the road, the beach is pebble, but a meter after entering the water, sand begins. There is nowhere to go especially in the evening, so we went for a walk in Larnaca or Ayia Napa (1.5 euros one way on a city bus). In Ayia Napa it is noisy and fun, in Larnaca it is much calmer.
