This trip has been cancelled – sorry!

UPDATE: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this trip had to be cancelled. In mid March, Sunwing cancelled all southbound flights through the end of April. Cuba subsequently closed its borders to tourism. 

I hope it will be safe to travel again in the not too distant future. When it is, I will be happy to lead group trips to Cuba again!

Take care,


Hola mis amigos!

It's still possible to join the crew going to my "second home" at Marea del Portillo, Cuba, on April 15, for either one week or two. Although accommodation at the Farallón Hotel is no longer available, there's space in the Marea Hotel or the nearby cabañas, both of which are beach level. The ocean is, essentially, right in your back yard!

Don't wait too long, though, because space is very, VERY limited and, after Feb. 12, the prices could change. Please get in touch with me soon, if you're interested in going on this trip to warm, wonderful Cuba!


We're getting down to the wire for this trip

There are only four seats left at the advertised rates for my April 15 trip to lovely Marea del Portillo, Cuba, and the deadline to sign up is looming! After Feb. 12, it may still be possible to join the group but the prices will likely be higher.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone you think may be intersted, especially if they like mangos! The mango season will just be starting there, so this a delicious time to visit. April is also the time of the annual crab migration along the Cuban coast. Every year, female land crabs migrate from the forest to release their eggs into the sea, and it's certainly something to see!

Can you envision a 2020 trip?

Happy New Year! What's planned for 2020?

I have a plan... escape to "my second home" in Cuba, right after Easter!

You're invited to join me, of course. The poster below provides all the basic information, including the fast-approaching deadline to book (Jan. 12). As you will see, the best price is for two weeks' double accommodation in the Farallón Hotel's "Superior" rooms. That was a surprise to me! I can't explain it. Sunwing is a quirky company. 

If you're not tired of winter yet, won't you be by April? Give yourself a light at the end of the snowdrift and plan a trip to Cuba with me!

Meanwhile, I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve celebration, however you choose to mark the end of 2019.

Hasta luego,

Wishing everyone lots of good stuff...

Enjoy the holidays, however you prefer to celebrate!
