More Photos from Cuba

Zeb the Duck here.   My friend, Channel the Bear, was in Cuba again.   She and her mom go often.   Her mom is a travel guide to Cuba for Friendly Planet.    Channel is sitting on a canon at the Hotel Nacional in Havana.

When I was there, this was my favorite hotel in Havana.   In the 1950’s, before Fidel Castro took power, this was the hotel for the rich and famous Americans.   They still have great old photographs there.    This is a restaurant in Havana, and that large building behind is the Hotel Nacional.

The California Café name says the Americans have not been forgotten.   This last photo is the famous Varadero Beach.

This is great Channel.   When we were in Cuba, we were not allowed here.   It is beautiful.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, hope you will go to Cuba soon to see what it is like now.   Cuba may be opening up to American tourism.   We understand that Carnival Cruise line has a subsidiary company that will begin cruises to Cuba twice a month.   The cruises may begin early May.   Go soon, before it changes.   We loved the friendly Cuban people and we think you will too.   Thank you Channel for these great photos.

  1. Channel’s Mum has the best job in the world. I would love to be a travel guide. Maybe Justin Beaver and I should go into business! My parents are looking at a cruise at the moment and one of the stops is Cuba. It’s with a different cruise company than the one you mentioned though.

    • I imagine you and Justin would be great tour directors. She trained with International Guide Academy in Denver and often teaches for them now. Sometimes she teaches on a cruise ship. Truly is a great job. As US citizens we are still quite restricted with travel to Cuba. Beginning of May will be first cruises to leave US and dock in Cuba since the 1950’s. Hope your parents have fun on their cruise. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      • I haven’t ever heard of that type of training in Australia. My parents are still in the planning stage of that trip, for next year but they have two planned for this year. I’m sure they’ll have a great time. Thanks.

    • Travel is still pretty restricted, but hope you see it soon. Just like going back to the 1950’s with very curious and friendly people. Different atmosphere than other Caribbean islands. I went in December 2013 and loved it. Thanks for reading and commenting.
