I loved it. I wish I spoke Spanish.
Hotel: Paradisus Río de Oro (300 rooms) in Playa Esmeralda. 5* resort.
I'd go again in a minute.
I was drunk for nearly 7 days
Its all inclusive.
Food was excellent, lots of pork & chicken.
Swim up pool bar. Bar in the lobby. Bars on the beach. Beer fridge in your room stocked with beer!
I'm a non-smoker. But I had a few cigars while I was there.
Not bad when smoking them (even drunk) but the taste the next day was bad.
There were even a few Americans in the resort with us (travelled from Toronto).
The city of Holguin is about 45 minutes from the resort area of Playa Esmeralda. The city of Holguin looked like a 3rd world country. I saw several apartment buildings that should have been condemed. But, I've some in FLA in the same shape.
Back on topic: I never did get to see the game. I had a snow storm on my desk and had to work a bit late.
