experience from Mexico to Cuba
03.07.2017 - 05.04.2017
I used Aeromexico flight to travel from Mexico to Cuba. The flight was 2 hours 55 minutes, the flight departed on July 3rd at 10:15am and arrived in Cuba Havana at 2:10pm, i checked into my hotel and ate at the hotel and started my fun day in Cuba. The flight costed me $502 for economy class which was the cheapest option for me.
I stayed at the Meliá Habana in the Miramar neighbourhood. My room at the Meliá Habana was on The Level, a concierge floor with an exclusive lounge, dining room and other upscale amenities. It had modern fixings, a gorgeous oceanfront terrace, free Wi-Fi and turn-down service that included a surprise bottle of wine and charcuterie plate one night. Breakfast included fresh guava, pastries, omelets, lox, and exquisite Cuban coffee. There were expansive pools at both the Meliá properties and a cute rooftop boutique-style pool at the Saratoga over-looking El Capitolo.
In Havana I took a sunset walk on El Malecon – 8 km of paved road along the sea, where the ocean waves splash and local go to relax and flirt after a day of work. Havana is a city of paradox: right next to the recently restored Capitol building, there are apartment buildings that are either falling apart or must have been lined up for restoration such a long time ago that the scaffolding is completely covered in ivy. This is where vintage cars line up at the traffic lights – and it is fun to take a tour of Havana in a classic vintage car; motorbikes still have sidecars; and bicitaxi drivers laze about sending text messages.
