Thankfully we are able to keep in touch with this beloved area. They are waiting for tourists to come back and looking forward to it. Meanwhile they have been working on some upgrades etc to make our time spent there after covid a good one.

Looking forward to seeing friends again and enjoying the sand, sun and aqua sea.

I hear you CB, as you know, this has been our second home for 36 years, but that 4 hour bus trip from Holguin is a deal breaker. At our age, 10 hours of travel is just not happening. Unfortunately, there are so many other options for travel to Cuba, unlike years ago, so I fear that flights direct to Camagüey are a thing of the past.

@1 sail We have only been to Santa Lucia once and quite enjoyed it, if I am not mistaken it was on Canjet from Hamilton to Camaguey!

Yea Gator, the good old days when we had choices. Now we can’t even get to Camagüey from TO. But we are looking at flying from Hamilton to Cayo Coco when the time is right, 20 minutes to the airport from home works for me.

We stayed at Mayanabo and even though it poured rain almost the whole week we were they we had a great time, I visited the El Rapido several times as well!

I am surprised at how many metal/hardcore fans there are in Cuba, the steroetypical depiction of everyone listening to Guantanamera just isn't the reality! lol

I certainly hope they don't stop service from Pearson. We usually stay at Brisas but did Mayanabo once which we also enjoyed- very down to earth. From what I remember the Rapido was popular with some of the younger staff. A plus for the area for us is Luna Mar- a good menu and the pizza is terrific.

There's a guitarist who is popular at the resorts in the Holguin area- he's exceptional and does a lot of classic rock and metal- we always look out for him.
