An unforgettable vacation in Havanna.
We had a wonderful stay with Melba and Alberto. They were so kind and caring. The breakfast was delicious. We had unlimited internet. We could make coffee at any time. They arranged a taxi to the airport and cashed our dollars. Thank you for a great time in Havanna.
