I thought..another crap tour to bore me! lol IT REALLY WASN'T!!!!
Yasmany the tour guide and his driver Yordany picked us up in Santa Maria at our hotel.
From that moment on, I never had a dull moment. I seen the sights of all the towns between Santa Maria and Santa Clara. The old vintage cab was a great ride. Sing along to very upbeat music and tried very hard to sing in Spanish. Of course this was impossible as all I know is HOLA! lol We ate at an amazing restaurant in Santa Clara by the name of Conquistadors. A buffet full of the most fantastic Cuban food. All you can eat for 6CUC. After eating at the resorts, I wondered why they didn't serve REAL Cuban food!! We shopped and saw the sights, had a few cappuccinos along the way, was awesome! Yasmany shopped with us and if he felt the price was to high, he would tell the clerks and they would always lower the price. Yasmany speaks very good English and also several other languages. I haven't had that much fun for a very long time!! We were never rushed and never told that we should go back to the hotel. The day was ours to do as we pleased. The excursions from the resorts were approx. 85CUC per person and you get shuffled along like cattle. There is a time limit for each stop with them. Heart of Cuba Tours is very cheap and by the car load, not pp.
Meet up with Yasmany and Yordany and you will have 2 new friends for life!!
