One of the beautiful old cars still being used in Cuba. Many of the cities are still full of beautiful historic buildings, some dating back more than 500 years and numerous old vehicle from the 1930s and 1940s.

We are hoping to spend the next week enjoying the underwater scenery of Grand Cayman, We have already had two fantastic dives.
A beautiful Blue Iguana found only on Grand Cayman, they were nearly extinct only ten years ago. They can grow up to five feet in length and live a solitary life from birth, taking three years to reach maturity.
In the last couple of weeks we have sailed more than one thousand nautical miles and visited three countries. We were very sorry to leave the San Blas Islands, Panama, one of the highlights of our cruise so far.
We had a two day sail from the San Blas Islands to Santa Marta in Colombia, the first day was champagne sailing and the second day saw lighter winds so we had to motor sail.
The next five days were spent in Santa Marta, Colombia, enjoying the vibrant city life, a big contrast from the remoteness of the San Blas Islands. We met up with a few British people who have been in the city for a while and enjoyed the active social life.
The perfect weather window presented itself and we took the opportunity to head north to the Cayman Islands, beam reaching all the way on starboard tack for nearly 700 nautical miles in four and a half days. One of our most enjoyable passages.
We now look forward to spending the next three months cruising the Cayman Islands and the south coast of Cuba, two very different economic and political countries. We are very excited to have the opportunity to explore the beautiful underwater world of the Cayman Islands and the Cuban culture.
Why not come and join us on our adventure with easy access from Grand Cayman International Airport?
