We chose to leave La Habana yet again, this time we went on a catamaran around the peninsular beach of Varadero, which is located about two hours from the capitol in the northernmost part of the island. It is the largest resort town in Cuba, where Europeans flock to in hundreds due to the fact that the city is made up of twenty-two kilometers of gorgeous beaches and islets. Kristin and I were delighted to be spending the day in the most comfortable clothing that exists for us, our bikinis.
Our tour included: snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, lunch, and then an afternoon at Playa del Blanco.
The best part of the day was completing something on my Bucket List, which was to swim with dolphins. Of course, it would have been even more special if it had happened in the wild, and it will happen one day with the amount of time I spend in the water, but for now my desire to get up close and personal with these beauties was satisfied.
After multiple kisses from the dolphins it was time to visit a beach I will never forget. . .
