I got to know about “Vamos Cuba” while searching for good addresses to book Salsa lessons for my vacations in Cuba. I already had my flight more or less booked and was planning to organize all other things directly in Cuba.But just one chat via Skype and Veronika from Vamos Cuba changed my mind regarding my one week I was planning to spend in Havana.It was easy and straight forward to work out an itinerary with her regarding my accommodation, individual Salsa classes, going out with locals and last but not least a dinner at a Cuban home all accompanied by a Cuban guide from Havana.The details:
My casa particular was great: The room (at the border to Habana vieja y Habana Centro), the view from my balcony, the family, the food…there was just nothing to complain about.My guide Alfredo is a fun guy. Depending on the tourists wish, he is ready to speak either Spanish or English, while guiding you through exciting Havanna. He has got all the tips and tricks for how to jump on cabs, how to find the best deals, what to see, where to go out, what to do and what not to do. His support saved me quite some time orientating myself and it only took me a couple days to find my way around in busy Havana.The dinner out at a Cuban home was also very well organized by Alfredo and we had some wonderful hours with great food. It was really cool getting a glimpse into the preparation of Cuban food and also getting to know another Cuban family. This is something which normal tourists hardly have a chance to experience.The Salsa dance classes with Yosmell were awesome. He is a professional and incredible dancer and does definitely know how to challenge his students! This is not just some fooling around, this is hard work and if you really want to move ahead with your Salsa skills than book your Salsa classes via Vamos Cuba as they are working together with professional teachers.
Overall I am just really happy that I had Veronika and Vamos Cuba helping me to make my stay in Havana an unforgettable one.This was my first trip to this wonderful country and it definitely was not the last!
