Mi pequeño San Juan

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This beautiful balcony with the cutest doorway displaying the words ‘Mi pequeño San Juan’ ‘my little San Juan’ somehow reflects the spirit of old San Juan. It is elegant, cute, soft and interesting at the same time. One of my favorite photos of the old San Juan. 

Playa Rincón – Maybe the best beach in the world

It could be the way we arrived there – two hours on a horseback – or that I was in need of some peace, quiet and relaxation. What ever it was Playa Rincón took my breath away. When we arrived to the beach there was hardly anyone else there. This beach is probably one of the most underrated beaches, maybe because it lies in the very east corner of Samaná peninsula, Dominican Republic. It is still a little bit off the beaten track but I believe not for a long.

Havana collection

I know La Habana I, we met at a very speacial moment. Therefore, I might be biased to say this city rocks. I am quite sure, though, that it is not just how we met, La Habana really is stunning. Would you agree with me?

Cabarete Chillin’ | Dominican Republic

Cabarete was more than just surfing. It was also about chillin’ out in the beach, having afternoon happy hour mojitos, dancing bachata, and watching world class kite surfing .

Cabarete Surfcamp | Dominican Republic

One thing I have always wanted to try: surfing. One week in northern Dominican Republic, Cabarete, and I got on the board.

It was amazing, challenging, difficult, fun. The surf camp resulted in having sore arms, liters of sea water swallowed and some successful waves with the board. I would not call myself surfer after the camp but surely I will try again. I will need, though, quite many hours more on the board before reaching the level of our teachers…

A Cuban Must | Trinidad de Cuba

Trinidad de Cuba is a town in central Cuba. Together with the nearby Valle de los Ingenios it has been a UNESCO World heritage site since 1988.

Trinidad de Cuba is my favorite place in Cuba after Havana. It has a colourful and inspiring atmosphere as Havana but with a small town feeling. During the day you can wander around and get lost. You can capture great holiday photos from the well-kept colonial buildings or relax and taste La Canchánchara, a drink that originates from Trinidad.

Before the sunset you can hit the beach, south from the town. Take some rom, food and friends with you and watch the mother nature painting the sky with amazing colours.

Phot credits go to fellow traveller | Trinidad de Cuba, Cuba | 2014

Head back to town for some live music in the small plaza midway up the steps leading to the Casa de la Música. It doesn’t matter whether you are a rookie or a pro, just crab a partner and go move your hips with the beats of salsa. Take a break and have a Mojito while cooling down from dancing.

Once you are ready for some serious party, climb up the mountain asking  for Discoteca Ayala, one of the most amazing dance clubs you have ever been. It is also called La Cueva, the Cave. It is a club carved out of a deep two-level cave. The party there gets hot and crazy. When the party is over and if you still have energy, just follow the crowd back to the town for some after party.

I had amazing time and met some really cool travellers as well as locals. Trinidad is a must while in Cuba!
