Lately it seems everyone wants to know how I plan my trips. Many wonder how I know where to go and how I find these great photo spots. Well, I have great news for you! It ain’t that hard!

This colonial town can only be reached from Santiago de Cuba via the road that leads you through the mountains and the tropical vegetation with dangerous sharp bends and ups and downs.
