Hotel Herradura is a run down, charming, eclectic, funky, unpretentious soviet style hotel on the Cuba side of Varadero. it has lots of warts, but a lovely staff and the most fantastic stretch of beach right outside. We loved it, even though our door knob fell off.

There’s no denying Cubans have a real gusto for life. Make the most of it. Know your neighbors and treat your family well. This is expressed by a lot of time hanging about after a days work in the streets, just spending time with each other. The streets are always teaming ...
... hamlets of the Black H’mong and Red Zao looks down to the Muong Hoa Valley and is one of the poorest communes to Sapa due to the thin and poor soil. Walking uphill from the road, one can see rudimentary houses built on the rocky farmland where the locals cultivate corn for their staple food.
After a busy day trek we got many things from Sapa. I had a big sleep ever in the train to comeback Hanoi. Of all, this was an incredible adventure and worth your time to ...
