I had a two week dancing and learning Spanish holiday organised by Vamos Cuba and it was over and above what I expected it to be. My Casa Particular hosts Anna and Idalberto were lovely, warm freindly people and I shed a tear when it was time to say good bye. My dance teacher Ivan was very experienced and I thouroughly enjoyed our lessons. Yaremi, my guide, was friendly and helpful and always there if I needed her.
My spanish teacher, Odalys, was una muy buena persona and I hope to expand on the foundation in spanish that she gave me. Last, but definately not least, my dance partner Gerardo ws the icing on the cake. Always smiling and enthusiastic and a great dancer, he was a pleasure to dance with.
The main reason I wanted to visit Havana was to salsa and he took me to some great clubs and I really felt at that point that I was immersed in Cuba and it’s music. I felt like I saw the real Cuba and not just the tourist sites. Thank you Vamos Cuba for this experience, I will never forget it.
