Cuba is a MUST

Nowhere in the Caribbean has WOWED us like the Gardens of the Queen. In this super-protected area off the coast of Cuba, we were treated to one of the healthiest coral reefs we have seen in years. Vibrant hard and soft corals, endless sea fans, and giant pillar coral made for a spectacular backdrop, as huge reef sharks and grouper of all kinds and sizes, followed us around like puppies.

We encountered giant loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles, plenty of moray eels, and hundreds and hundreds of tarpon. We came upon never-ending parades of yellow tails, school masters, chromis, and tangs, and we swam through schools of silversides so dense that we couldn’t see through them. WOW!

If that wasn’t enough, we all had the chance to swim with juvenile saltwater crocodiles (or take photos and video from above water). We learned to salsa dance from our Cuban dive crew. We enjoyed the awesome sights and sounds of colorful Havana and tasted some of the best mojitos ever! Yes, we are going back!
