Our first stop was Santiago de Cuba. Is the regarded as the root of the Cuban Revolution. It streets were teaming with people, motorbikes, and cars, lined by colorful building and shops.
We walked the neighborhoods, and to my regret, we do not speak Spanish, but we were able to communicate. There is much see in Cuba, and not doing some ot the tourist attractions would be a mistake.
Castillo de San Pedro del Morro is one of the best-preserved Spanish fortresses of the 17th century. It is situated at the entrance to the Bay of Santiago, and the fortress lies about 10 kilometers southwest of Santiago de Cuba.
Everywhere we traveled we were greeted warmly by the Cuban people.
