Day 1 Havana - Viñales

¡¡Buenos días desde Cuba!!

A new tour begins and we are all eager to ride this beautiful island in search of history, sightseeing, good food and of course, some of it's famous Rum!

 

First stop at the harbor town of Mariel, certainly need something cool to drink as it is steaming hot here!
A quick look from atop the "cafetal" and obviously, a coffee is a must
Neven's passion for American motors goes with his love for Harleys!
Wherever we went, people loved our bikes. People asked respectfuly to take a picture and were always happy to converse about everything and anything
Upon arrival at terrazas de San Juan, the fresh breeze brought by the river was soothing, cooling and inviting to take a swim.

Day 5 Rest Day in Trinidad

Reaching the tour's equator, and being so close to the beach, it seems right to take a day off and go and visit the beautiful town of Viñales!

Day 7 Cayo Santa María - Remedios

A late start as it's a short day takes us leisurely back over the 50 Km road of the Cayo, giving us time to take pictures and enjoy the sun's caress on our skins

Caro enjoying the views of the Cayo road, riding with the sea on both sides
After visiting the cigar factory, we had to enjoy some of the produce with a rum!

Time to check mails and see how everything is going back home!

Day 8 Remedios - Varadero

Kids will be kids, and it is more important to have a goal marked with flip flops, than it is to wear them while playing!!
