Holiday Snaps of Cuba - You NEED to go here!! (picture overload!!)

Its a joint "must have" between my mum and I that we try to go on a holiday every year together.  OK, so to some this may sound like "WHAT!!??" but my mum is fantastic.  Shes my best friend, shes such a laugh, we bounce off each and get on like sisters - that's why i love going on holiday with her! Shes sodding gorgeous and doesn't realise it, but I'm trying to convince her..!!

Anyway, this year we were really lucky to go to Cuba - an area called Holguin towards the south of the island.  This was an amazing holiday.  It didn't cost as much as you'd think (although don't get me wrong, it was more than 2 weeks in Tenerife) but totally worth it. All inclusive at a gorgeous hotel, 5 minute walk to the beach, 3 pools to choose from and surrounded by unspoilt Cuba life.

It was that amazing, that my mum wants to go back next year - might not sound a big thing, but my mum has travelled ALOT and to ALOT of places and her philosophy is "the world is too big to go back to the same place"...this is the FIRST time EVER she has wanted to go back somewhere, so it really is THAT good!

So i thought id show you a few snaps of it....none of myself or mum as we both hate pictures of ourselves, but trust me, i think the Dolphins more than make up for it!

Sitting comfortably? Good - let the picture fest being!!

So What do you think? Is it what you thought of when you think "Cuba"?
It was the most amazing holiday and the most gorgeous place. The people are just lovely and always happy (well, they were when tourists around, but i get the vibe that they're like that anyway!).

Beautiful Hotel, beautiful beaches, the pool was even gorgeous (we normally go to the beach, but the pool was perfect!), great temperatures (in Egypt last year it was like going into a freezer - i hated it!), the food was fresh and tasted great! I honestly cant think of a bad thing....apart from the golf carts didn't tend to stop for you if you were walking back to your room!! But if that's the only thing that was wrong....!

Its looking like we might go back next year as we really did love it, and totally recommend it to anyone who asks!
hope you liked the pictures - we actually had over 700 (including short videos!)

  13. Wow. Simply beautiful! I hope that the political barriers that keep me and my fellow Americans from being able to visit Cuba will one day be settled so we may all benefit from the beautiful things each nation has to offer the other. Thank you for allowing me to see what its like in Cuba!
