Driving in Cuba – Two Week Road Trip – All you need to know

Driving in Cuba 2 weeks - All you need to know

Driving in Cuba Cuba Road Trip After having stayed more than a week in Havana with my friends, I decided to jump off the capital and begin to seriously explore the island. Since public transportation to smaller villages in Cuba is a bit unreliable, the best way to know the country, without a doubt, is to have your own wheels. This way you can travel freely and go wherever and whenever you want. After an intense hour in Havana searching for the best car rental prices, I found out that all companies have the same prices as they were all state owned. At the time I traveled in Cuba, there were no private rent-a-car companies. I decided to go with CUBACAR. After dealing with the car rental agreement and rental terms & conditions, Mr. Carlos León from the rental company office quickly explained me a few things to consider while driving…

Incredible Momotombo Volcano and Lake Managua in Nicaragua

Visit Momotombo Volcano On the shores of Lake Managua, Momotombo volcano is one of the most important national symbols of Nicaragua. This is due to its beautiful symmetrical shape, whether you admire it from afar or close. Visit Momotombo A stunning cone-shaped volcano formed by overflown magma near the town of Puerto Momotombo on the shores of Lake Managua. This conical stratovolcano is built up by many layers of hardened lava. The 1610 eruption forced the inhabitants of León to run away and relocate 48 km / 30 mi west, leaving their city behind.

Travel Around the World

Travel Around the World A few years back, I went traveling around the world during 18 months without any programmed destinations. I had no pre-arranged itinerary.

The main purpose of the trip was to visit all the seven continents: Europe, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Asia and Pacific.

Getting to the beach itself is not very easy, as you need to walk for a while. Down the stairs with a lot more than 100 steps you finally get to the incredible beach. The easy way to get there is by asking a fisherman in Man of War Bay to take you by boat. “The crystal clear water with several sailboats moored is of a unique beauty and a fantastic snorkeling site. The sunset came to flood the bay with an unbelievably dazzling light.” The history of Trinidad and Tobago dates since its discovery in the late fifteenth century by the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus. Unfortunately, the Spaniards, the first settlers, decimated the Kalipuna, Carinepogoto, Carine and Arauca native population. These islands were very disputed by France, Germany, and England to…
