Wednesday 17 February, 2010 – Santiago de Cuba to Holguin

Today was a wet and dull day, ideal for driving through a fairly uninteresting landscape. Eventually we reached Guardalavaca with ‘hotel villages’ along the Playas. But in today’s wet weather, we caught a glimpse of groups of tourists, dressed in plastic bags, around swimming pools where they seemed to be drowning their sorrows, with many glasses and bottles on the table.

As usual for such places, their charges for all inclusive accommodation were ridiculous and we drove on to Holguin, where we found affordable accommodation in another hotel in the Islazul group.
