Just back and had an incredible time. First time staying in the city. Would definitely do it again, but it's off to the playa in June for my next installment.
Ask away if you have any questions about Camagüey City. Dare I say it...about as close to the 'real Cuba' I've ever experienced. Or perhaps more accurately, as close to the myth as one can ever anticipate and appreciate. Very few other turistas there so I definitely felt like a true novelty to the Cubanos I got to know and befriended. I was invited to 2 different Cubano casas for dinner, and although they virtually have nothing, they shared everything they had with me. Their tremendous food, hospitality, and the sincere warmth of their company was more than I could have asked for. They genuinely accepted me as one of their own and asked for nothing in return.
