Flamingo's are not native to the island, and can only be found in one spot. That spot is Renaissance Island which is owned by Marriott. If you stay at the Renaissance, admittance to the island is complimentary with your stay, and the water taxi can be boarded at the docks, or inside the hotel lobby. You read right, the boat comes inside the hotel lobby. Since we were staying at the Marriott Surf Club, we did have to pay $125/person to have the joyful experience of playing with the flamingos. Included in that fee was lunch and a drink at the restaurant located on the Island. One tip to remember is that if the Renaissance is fully booked, you won't have the option to purchase this day pass. It is only available if the hotel is at 80% capacity or less. So if this is an excursion you are determined to do, I would recommend staying at least one night at the Renaissance so that you're sure to get your chance to visit the Island.
I can say wholeheartedly, that I absolutely loved Cuba. Last month I stayed in Havana for a week and I still look at the pictures over and over. The colors were amazing, the cars were surreal and the people were absolutely delightful. I can't get over it. I'll need to return soon! Until then here are my favorite photos to inspire you to see it for yourself.
This Spring, I visited Havana, Cuba with Jakera. During my stay I lived, learned, ate and interacted with many of the locals. My program provided lodging, meals, Spanish classes and local activities. I stayed in a Casa Particular with a very friendly host family, who all happened to be named Patricia - grandmother, mother and daughter. Every morning at the Jakera house, we had homemade Cuban breakfast prepared for us. Breakfast was followed by a three-hour interactive Spanish class and then we had a home cooked lunch. During class we walked around the city, visited museums and even the beach. It was a truly magical experience! For those who haven't been to Cuba this list will help you prepare for the ups and the downs. And for those who have been, this should be a reminder why Cuba is so great!
