Steve's latest adventure - his run to Key Yest had me thinking about a run to Cuba then this morning I opened my e.mail and there was an electronic issues of Boating magazine with an article from the Florida Power Boat Club about their trip to Cuba.
I have been to Cuba over 15 times since 1987. Beautiful beaches, Varadaro beach is one of the top 5 in the world. Absolute best rums and cigars. Nicest people I have encountered anywhere.
They have followed all of our sports for years and probably know the names of more baseball/basketball and even hockey players than 99% of North Americans.
Extremely high rates of education. Some of the best trained doctors in the world. Absolutely beautiful resorts with great food if you pick a 5 star. Americans are welcomed with open arms by the Cubans.
Anyway that's my opinion but what got me started on this thread was an article in my new boating issue from the President of the Florida Power Boat Club. 20 of their members made a trip to Cuba. You might find it an interesting read.
We will probably be there in December. We can fly there and stay in a 5 star hotel all meals and booze included for a week (we usually stay two weeks) for about $1,500.00 IMO no value like it anywhere in the world.
If interested google www.flpowerboat.com and look for the article on their website.
P.S. There is a link in the article if you look around a bit to a pre-trip to Havana by the group leader Stu Jones to set things up for the trip. There are some interesting pictures of old cars etc.
