Hello all. I hope everyone’s summer is going well.
My Father pulled me aside the other day and mentioned he was thinking of surprising Mom and taking a trip somewhere nice they have never been before. He actually said Cuba was one of the places he was thinking. Now, that was big as he grew up with the missile crisis and has always had the frame of mind, “never give my money to communist”. They celebrated their 50th back in June and never did anything special. So he was asking me where to go in Cuba and to check pricing. They unfortunately don’t have a lot of money to spend on a high-end resort.
Knowing my parents, they would probably want; a nice beach, not a huge resort, decent quality food, some nightly entertainment shows, a nice pool, and pool and beach area with lots of shade/palapas as my Dad burns easily. They don’t really know any Spanish so a resort known for its quality of communication would be a benefit, likewise probably a more Anglo based clientele resort would be good.
I was thinking of either Breezes Jibacoa as my Dad may like to do the day trip to Havana or the Melia Cayo Guillermo (I know, not much to do on CG). I would love to send them to Cayo Largo but I don’t think they could get past the nudity. I was also thinking Varadero, but we’ve only been to the Paradisus Varadero which I think would be out of their budget.
So, if it was your parents/family member, where would you send them? He was thinking sometime in October/November which I already informed him of the hurricane season.
Thank for any recommendations!
