Birds in Flight 2016-programCuba is holding a Photographic Holiday in the Zapata Province, where Castro and Che Guavera landed in the Bay of Pigs.

I have been there several times and I love it. It’s an area well worth visiting.

The Alligators are fascinating in the National Park, and the hotels there are in beautiful, peaceful surroundings.

It’s a nature lover’s delight.

There is also snorkling, fishing, and lots of historical sites to see.

The food is all good and fresh, and you’ll have lots of Cuban music to entertain you!
