New video uploaded - Chiviroco Tour

Great to see the recent changes on Debbie’s. A lot of interesting reading and it certainly helps with the CWS. We spent 2 great weeks at Brisas Sierra Mar the end of Jan and really not happy about returning to all this snow. Oh well, soon we’ll be booking our next trip.

While at the Brisas, we decided to take the Chivirico Tour. Partly to get an idea of the local area but we were really interested in seeing “Los Galeones”. After reading about it, we wanted to see for ourselves the stairs down to the beach and if it was it something we could or would want to do. It was only a 3 hour tour but definitely got us interested in checking into Los Galeones sometime in the future. The music in the video is performed by Sexteto Guama, the very popular local band.

Enjoy

Thanks for sharing.
Those stairs really don’t look as daunting as I’d believed they might be.
Los Galeones has been added to my list although it’s not as easy getting there from the west coast.

Thanks for posting your video and thanks for coming back and noticing changes :slight_smile: If you wish you can include your video directly in the posts using little video icon and thanks for sharing video.
how was weather in Brisas Sierra Mar while you were there. Some friends went to Havana and they had some cold days.

By the way I just finished watching full video! Looks like you had nice relaxing vacation enjoying nature and stress free environment :slight_smile: Love your video and thanks for sharing!

Wow! That was a great video. Really showed LG perfectly. BUT, you didn’t show any one coming back UP the stairs - that’s the hard part. But the beach area really is spectacular.

Thanks for the comments and thanks for the tip, next time I’ll post directly. I’m working on an updated snorkeling video from the Brisas Sierra Mar so that will be next. As to the weather our second day was rainy and then overcast for some of the first week but that meant I had to wear a heavier T-shirt on one of those days. A bit unusual for that area from what I understand but still a pretty good vacation.

The stairs at Los Galeones are manageable and yes it did take a few minutes longer up then down. Maybe when we’re there next year I’ll do a video going up, including rest breaks :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing that experience, mrjarat and Runs_with_scissors.
