Sun & Rum: 7 Days, 7 Nights in Cuba – YYZ-VRA

Friday, April 13, 2012…

The day started very early for me. I went in to work around 5:30am, and was finalizing some projects before I headed to the airport with a buddy for our trip to Cuba. My friend’s co-worker was also tagging along, but we were all to meet at the gate. Before we got in line to check in, we were handed a coupon for the airport lounge, so we decided that after checking in, we would give it a go.


For a fee of $25.00 + taxes, we got to spend 2 hours in the lounge with comfy couches and a tv.


Food and Drink are also included, with non-alcoholic beverages such as juices and soft drinks, and alcoholic bevys such as beer and liquor.


The food wasn’t anything to rave about, but hey, it makes for a great start to a trip.


Our flight departed around 5:40pm, and took about 3 1/2 hours. By the time we landed at the airport in Varadero, Matanzas, Cuba, we couldn’t wait to get the party started. I purchased 2 cans of beer for CUC 5 which I shared and as we got on the bus, we immediately started making friends with a few characters that would make the trip memorable. As we arrived to our resort we dropped off our bags in our rooms and headed over to the discotheque and the lobby bar…and so it begun…
