Today we start out our tour with a trip to San Pedro de la Roca Castle Santiago de Cuba which was a great fort. We had a chance to see these women performing. I have a video of their performance down below. The next stop was a visit to the San Juan Hill and the Cathedral Santiago de Cuba. We also got a chance to see a local dance group perform as well. Once again videos are down below.
Today we drove to Our Lady of Jagua which is a fortress that was built in the 18th century. After a brief visit to the fortress, we saw local performers. Please scroll down below to see some of the videos from the performance.
After the performance, we stopped at a local restaurant and had a quick bite to eat. The food was delicious!
Today we arrived at the Port of Havana. The first thing John and I both noticed was how dirty the water was. It was full of oil it looked like black mud. The first thing we drove by was the American Embassy with all the famous flagpoles in front of it. There were no flags blocking it, but the poles were all there. We then drove about 3 hours to the Vinales Valley and visited the home of a cigar farmer and got a cache to see him roll a cigar which was pretty cool. The next stop was the Mural de la Prehistoria and took a few pics of the big mural.
The coolest part of being in Havana was the World Famous Tropicana show. If you are planning on going to Cuba make sure you purchase the tickets ahead of time.
