Holidays to Mexico and Cuba. Combine the beauty of the Yucatan Peninsula with the beauty of the Caribbean and what do you get? A twin centre holiday of sun, sand, and unbeatable scenery in Cancun and Cuba. Both offer ancient history, family beaches, and attractions for every age. Start at the beach, usually located right out the door from your hotels.
Playa Delfines is a gorgeous beach. Take your picture with the colourful iconic CANCUN sign. Play in the surf and walk the toast-coloured sands. Sit under the umbrellas and enjoy a cool drink while you watch for dolphins. Located in the hotel district, this is a popular beach for tourists. It is convenient to a playground for the kids, an outdoor work-out area and plenty of shopping and restaurants.
Next, take the short ride from the hotel district to the El Rey Ruins. Here you can walk where ancient Mayans walked as they went to the temple. Explore the ruins. The plaques help visitors understand the way these ruins would have once functioned. Usually this place is less crowded and more intimate than the other ruins. Try this place for its quiet solitude and reflections of the past.
Museo Maya de Cancun is perfect for catching the rest of the history of the ancient Mayans. The museum is small, but full of great recently found artifacts like jewelry, pottery and tools along with skeletal remains. See amazingly intricate sculptures and statues, bowls and even the skeleton of a saber-tooth tiger. Walk the paths through the trees to the archeological site where ruins are unearthed for viewing. A good tip? Save this attraction for a rainy day when the beach is inconvenient.
Next, leave the sandy shores of Cancun Mexico and head off to the sandy shores of Cuba. Havana is a city locked in time. Buildings still hold the holes from bullets of the revolution. History is on every corner, from the statue of Lennon to the classic cars to the people themselves. See art, hear music and dance with performers on the streets. Be sure to tip these people, as they are very impoverished.
See the hotel room where Ernest Hemingway stayed. Today it is a museum dedicated to the famous author. Take a guided tour in a classic Chevy. The guides know their local history and a ride in one of these fantastic cars is a real treat. See the Revolution Square, The Palace and the market where you can buy handmade souvenirs.
Varadero is beachfront beauty. Al Capone once roamed these shores and ran his business from here. Varadero beach is the most beautiful beach in Cuba. Snowy white sand, clean, clear waters and plenty of loungers- perfect for a day on the beach. There are a lot of hotels in this district, making it very convenient for visitors.
Try Blau Varadero Hotel for gorgeous views of the ocean. Archery and firing competitions are part of the activities at this hotel. The elevators offer amazing views of the lovely lobby. There is a piano bar, a poolside bar and a lobby bar. Watch water ballet in the pools and see the amazing agility of these performers.
The buffet is a feast for the eyes as well as the belly, with huge floral arrangements and juicy melons, freshly-made smoothies and smiling faces. Try some of the grilled pig served on banana leaves. Tasty, cooling salads, fresh plantains and many other dishes make this the perfect place to try something new. At night, entertainers will dance, live music will play and you will be surrounded by colourful costumes and talented performers doing amazing shows. There is never a dull moment at the Blau Varadero. Mexico and Cuba - a hot and spicy vacation you will love!
