Cuba Libre

Cuba is, in my opinion, the most culturally developed country in the Caribbean. Sure there is poverty, but no more so then a lot of other islands in the Caribbean. Despite their lack of material wealth, the Cuban people are the most generous people in the world. I admit that my first time visiting, I was not looking forward to it at all, I was more scared than excited. All I can say about my trip was that I actually cried. I cried when I had to board the plane to come home. You will not find an experience like Cuba anywhere else in the world. No matter where fate takes me, I will always have Cuba in my heart.

UPDATE:
My 3rd annual group trip to the Caribbean has been posted, this trip will take us to Varadero this year. We are hoping to fill the entire plane, 86 seats. Our last two trips (to Cancun, and Puerta Plata) had 47 and 39 people. The response has been really good this year and 86 people is a very reachable goal.

The trip will take place Sunday September 24th to Sunday October 1st, 2006. The cost will vary depending on where you are coming from, however as part of our large group you will definately get a cheaper rate. The cost from Toronto is approx. $700 taxes included and we are staying at Arenas Blancas Hotel in Varadero.

All the onformation for this trip is posted at:

If you've ever wanted to go to Varadero, book this trip!

See you all there!
