WOW JUST WOW!! THIS WAS A ONCE IN A LIFE TIME EXPERIENCE! Maylen was our guide and Omar was our driver for the full duration of our trip. We got the opportunity to see a huge part of Cuba and experience the culture in a completely immersive way. I have never experienced such incredible hospitality! Maylen is extremely educated speaks flaunt Spanish, French and English. She is highly knowledgeable and shared so much of her experiences and life with us. We walked away feeling as though we made a new friend. You can tell this is her life’s calling. Omar is amazing driver and saved us from a few other crazy drivers and he even built his car from the ground up. He and my husband really enjoyed there common love of cars. A few highlights of our trip; we got to have lunch overlooking the Vinales Valley this was one of those moments where you felt like the view was something from a TV show. Then the 1st place we stayed was in Vinales at Villa Los Croton, Tatti and Renee where our hosts and they made us an authentic dinner and breakfast. Their Pina Coladas where truly the best I have/will ever have! When talking to their son about fishing, he generously volunteered to take us down the road to a privet pond where we could fish. He set us up with bait and fishing poles and just left us to hang out for as long as we wished. Such a special experience! Then we were off to the rocky and fish filled Caribbean Sea where we went snorkeling in the beautiful blue waters. For the last day of our trip we stayed in Varadero, did a little gift shopping and hung out on the most unbelievable white sand beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

My husband and I went on the adventure tour and it was an amazing experience. Maylen was our guide and her knowledge and experience as a tour guide was very impressive. She clearly loves showing off Cuba and was a great ambassador for her country. She successfully tread the line between being a professional guide and also talking with us as friends. This is important given the trip is for three days and you spend a lot of time together. The trip was well-planned and we managed to see the beauty of Vinales as well as the beach resort of Varadero, among many other fascinating places. If you have the time, it is absolutely worth getting out of Havana and getting a taste of the countryside and other parts of Cuba. Yunietxi and Maylen take out the planning for you. You simply need to enjoy your time. We would highly recommend this trip!!
