Matanzas was established in 1572, and it now has 17 bridges.
We checked into our casa particular a few blocks from where Manfred, Sheila, and Gord were staying. That's where we spent most of our time when not exploring and enjoying Matanzas.

So he took us to hotel safely and left us, we got to our room and prepared for tomorrow trip to Havana.

The first impressions of Varadero town are awesome.
