No “K” in Cuba

I haven’t written a blog post in a while, but I thought I would hop on tonight and express my mixed emotion about my upcoming holiday.

Since, erm… December Karla and I have been planning on going “somewhere warm” for a holiday the end of October / first part of November. I have been excited for quite a while, and when I found out there were actually five or six people game for a vacation, I was uber happy.

Well three weeks ago Karla found out she got a new job!!! YEY FOR KARLA! I am so proud of my wife!!! The down side to this amazing career opportunity of course is that she can no longer go away on our vacation.

Karla was gracious enough (after a minor bribe of the cost of the trip in new clothing) to be understanding and “let” me go away “somewhere warm” without her. So off we go, all four or five of us… oh wait, we had to switch the week we were going because the original date no longer worked for me, which means now two traveling companions also can’t go when we were going. So off we go, all three of us… oh wait, who was the third person anyways?

In summary, the vacation dwindled down to just two of us; myself and my friend Andrew. Which is totally awesome!!!! We are going to have a friggen fantastic time in Cayo Coco, Cuba at the Nh Krystal Laguana for 7 days, all inclusive. I totally can’t wait, I’m so excited.

Oh don’t worry there will be pictures… I will post them when I get back.

  1. Very clever blog title. Just think, you will be nice and tanned when you take me clothes shopping in Toronto!
    You will have a great time soaking in the sun and alcohol! I am soooo jealous, but so excited that I got this new job!

    Have fun you two!

  2. Haha… thanks sweetness. I will miss you when I’m gone, just as I miss you now while you’re away ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. What did you think of the hotel Matt? I’ve not stayed at the NK but its supposed to be one of the best on the islands.

    We stayed at the cracking Melia Cayo Coco. If you were to go back again give that one a go.


  4. Hey Lee,

    I thought it was okay, 3.5 to 4 stars. When we were there 1/2 the hotel was closed and under construction, which was fine actually because the property was seriously enormous. But for a hotel this large, I felt it was definitely lacking in the bar area. Really the lobby bar was the only place to go at night.

    The beach at this place was beautiful. The first nice day this spring (back here in Canada) I had put on a pair of shorts that I had worn while in Cayo Coco and there was still fine powdery white sand in the lining of my pockets. It made me sad ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Would I go back? I dunno. The resort was nice, but I like to do a little more than relax and sit on the beach, and that was primarily what I felt Cayo Coco had to offer. I really enjoyed Varadero because we got to go visit Havana, and do a little bit more walking around.
