    Flag System at the Beach

    catamarans on the beach

    Favorite thing: The flag system is this: red flag, no swimming. green flag, go swim! yellow flag, be cautious. Out of the whole week I was there, it was red flag four days and yellow flag 3. The days it was red, there were dead jellyfish on the beach... not sure what happened, but the tsunami in Sri Lanka was happening at the same time....

    Fondest memory: When the beach was accesible, that was the ultimate best part. Falling asleep on the beach to the ocean surf is too relaxing...

    Beaches but beware the mosquitoes and sand fleas

    Favorite thing: You will love the beaches at Varadero. I've never seen such beautiful blues and greens from the warm ocean. If you're lucky enough and the sky turns dark with rain it intensifies the colours even more.
    I could sit for hours and hours under the palm leaved umbrellas reading a good book, getting some rays, or going swimming in the ocean.
    When the sun is about to set make sure you wear some mosquito repellant. Some of the tourists got dozens of bites. If you take a walk at sunset in the sand or by the sea grasses, that's when they come out to feast.

    Fondest memory: Hmmmm...it's got to be digging my feet in the warm fine white sand and gazing out at the ocean. Pure paradise it is!

    Fondest memory: VARADERO: The Hicacos peninsula is on the northern coast. Here there is La Playa Varadero that is a nice beach, a large strip of white sand 18 kilometres long. It's the most famous and frequented beach in Cuba by the international tourism. But... some people leave from these beaches sailing by fragile boats trying to cross the Straits of Florida. Someone don't survive. This is a thing that make you think.
