Jumping in Trinidad

Trinidad, cuba,

Our friend Paulina invited us to her wedding in Villahermosa, Mexico, which we thought was the perfect excuse to escape the depressing French winter and explore new territories in Cuba, Mexico, and Belize before attending the wedding.

We started with the large Cuban island. I had never been to Cuba before, and it is definitely a must-visit destination for every well-traveled person. Cuba is a country where several layers of modern history are still visible, from the emblematic American cars from the 1950s to the Russian fridges from the 1970s and the Chinese buses of the 2000s. In fact, it seems that most of the manufactured goods are coming from China nowadays.

If you want to discover Cuba, don't stay in a hotel. They are super expensive and full of tourists. Instead, you should stay in a Casa Particular ("private house"). We booked our first Casa Particular in La Havana through the Cuba Junky website. We then booked the other casas through the network of the first casa owner, which was very effective!

We took the picture below on a beach near Trinidad, a very nice little city with an old colonial style.

In the afternoon, we went on a horse ride into the countryside up to La Cascada ("the waterfall"). After two hours on horseback, the refreshing (and perhaps somewhat cold) water from the fall was more than welcome.
