[December . 5th . 2013] #THROWBACK
PARADISE PARADISE PARADISE! For all my vacations – blog posts are divided into days – so for this trip – there will be 7 blog posts due it being a 7 day trip. Now on to our amazing paradise vacation. Before making my decision on choosing Iberostar Azul Laguna – I read over hundreds of reviews on Trip Advisor! The view from the main pool killed it!
It was an early flight from Toronto to Cuba Varadero on December 5th 2013. We arrived at Cuba, Varadero around 1 in the afternoon. Went through customs and baggage claim the first thing we arrived. Than we quickly did currency exchange there and got onto our transfer bus. Reason why we did currency exchange at the airport because a lot of people recommended it and they give the best rates comparing to the resort.
When we got to the resort – we quickly checked in and the bell boy took us to our room. By the time everything got settled – it was late afternoon already. We were starving and the buffet was closed. So we headed to the snack area near the beach for a fast lunch. My first meal experience was interesting to say the least! I was not thrilled with the food at all. I mean – I’ve heard so many things about don’t have too many expectations on Cuba food – I never thought it be THAT different. We had hot dog, pizza, and fries. Its just not the same.
After a quick meal – we quickly changed to our swim wear and headed to the beach for our first swim. LOVELY! It was breath taking minus walking on the sand. It felt like I was stepping on glasses. Everything was so perfect – the waves – the aqua water – the sun – and the beautiful sky.
After a little swim – we headed back to our room to shower & changed. Our room was only three minutes away from the beach and pool – it was very convenient.
Than we headed to our very first actual meal of the day. OH MAN! I took way too much food and barely ate any. Till this day – I still felt super bad about wasting food. I just couldn’t stomach it. It was way too bland for my liking. I was just not used to it – even the dessert and fruits was blend. It was a horrible experience! Please God – forgive me for wasting food!
Overall – an amazing first day at the Iberostar Laguna Azul resort minus the food experience. Stay tune for the rest of our trip HERE! This blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! Leave a comment below for your resort experience and which resort you’ve been to!
Have an AMAZING day!!
