Location: Jibacoa, Cuba (halfway between Varadero & Havana)

Hotel: Breezes Jibacoa  (guests must be 14 years and older)

Date Visited: December 2-9, 2006 (one week stay)

Price Paid:  $648 + tax (booked 2 months ahead)

Room#: 2209, Building 15 – ocean view room (total hotel rooms – 250)

Weather Conditions: Weather was very good except for the last day.  A large amount of jelly fish, Portuguese man-of-war, also known as the blue bubble, blew in.  They are a brightly blue coloured inflated bubble and have very long stinging tentacles.   If stung, for immediate treatment rinse the area with seawater or fresh water to remove any tentacles stuck to the skin. Do not apply vinegar.  A study has indicated that vinegar in these type of stings sometimes makes the sting worse.

Snorkeling:  Did not have a lot of opportunity to explore, but overall it was worth checking out.

Beach: I rated this beach a 5 star as it had plenty of palapas and shade trees.

Food: Cuban specialty restaurant was very good and had a great shrimp cocktail.  The buffet offered lobster on Thursday evenings.  Overall good food.

Opinions/Tips:  The Piano Bar was a great place to spend the evenings.  Internet was available for $8 pesos per hour, though it was very slow.

Would I return: Yes.
