Back to our vacation.
The beach was simply wonderful and the weather was a consistent 30+ degrees each day. Cayo Santa Maria has the best beach in Cuba in my opinion. You can walk the beach for kilometers and meet hardly a soul.
Not every day is spent at the resort however. We managed day trips to Remedios, Santa Clara, Sancti Spiritus and Trinidad (of Cuba). To us it is very important to understand the culture of any country we visit and Cuba is no exception. Indeed it's history of a struggling peoples is both intriguing and compelling. Above is the tomb of Ernesto Che Guevara who as most know was assassinated by the CIA in Bolivia in October of 1967. He is, to this day, considered as much of a hero as Jose Marti.
