R&R (rum and rumba) in Cuba


dscf1007Sure didn’t feel like winter on Cayo Santa Maria with daytime highs around 29 C. And our timing was pitch perfect–missed a lot of snow in Toronto while we were hoisting mojitos.

The highlight of the week was the Legendarios del Guajirito show with artists from the Buena Vista Social Club and the Afro-Cuban All Stars. El Guajirito is the Havana club made famous by the legendary Buena Vista Social Club, and on Monday nights its show comes to Cayo Santa Maria. The music sets the crowd on its feet!

Shots below: Ed in his element, our perfect beach and the Legendarios del Guajirito with Tropicana star Maida Mitchell in centre stage.
