    Our half day birding trip with Paulino was the highlight of our trip! Paulino is so knowledgable, helpful and patient. From the moment we met him it was clear he put a great deal of effort into making it the best possible experience. He had binoculars for all of us, a list of possible birds, bird books and a fabulous scope that he set up for us to get a really good look at the bird in our sights. He took us to a variety of settings so we could see many different bird species - in fact, we recorded 63 species in our 4 hours together. Incredible! I can't wait to go back to Cuba to do the inland excursion. Thank you Paulino!

    My 11 year old daughter loves climbing activities. So we HAD to go there. I usually am not scared of anything but this was something. All paths are different and the level of difficulties varies from one path to another. It was really fun and felt extremely safe. However I had my knees shaking after some challenging paths... I recommend this for everyone!

    The structure is also a piece of art if you are not an adept of climbing ! It is worth taking the time to see the imagination that went into building it.

    Best snorkeling experience ever. The fish were beautiful. We got to swim in the ocean after diving off the boat. Would highly recommend as the experience is worth the $25CUC.

    We cane here whilst staying at the melia. Coach picks you up from the lobby and drops you back off. This place is very good. We got all the treatments including the mud wrap, Cleopatra's bath, as well as using the facilities. An amazing view as well outside looking over onto the sea. The price was very good and included a massage which I felt could have been a little better

    We signed up for a two city tour which included a speed boat ride through the mangrove swamps and a visit to a crocodile farm. It was a great way to look at Cuba and the guide and driver were accommodating and knowledgeable. I would recommend this to get a real perspective.

    We spend a week kiting in Cayo Coco and also took some lessons with Sergey and Carlos.
    We loved the casual but professional atmosphere. From the onset on we were treated more like friends than clients, exchanging kite war stories and sharing kites:-). (I brought my own stuff).

    The school is located directly on a wonderful beach with good wind and some fun waves. The equipment is first-class and the attention superb.

    A great thank you, especially to Carlos, who more than once found my board floating in the blue waves....

    All-in-all a must go if you plan to learn or improve your skills.

    We came as guests and left as friends

    I enjoyed a fantastic day on the Tornado Catamaran. I'm not generally a big fan of excursions ... I usually find them to be overpriced and a bit of a let down but I was very pleasantly surprised by this outing. The staff on the boat were great! They were professional, attentive and FUN! We stopped for snorkelling at two very different reefs and had lots of time to swim and observe lots of interesting fish. The stop at the sandbar was relaxing and fun. The lobster lunch was fantastic!

    I'm so glad my friends suggested we do this trip ... it was a great day!

    The boat crew were extremely friendly and helpful. Took us out fishing (caught 13 barracudas,jack and blue tuna). The crew served fresh lobster for lunch (they dived over board and caught them fresh). All in all it was an amazing experience as i was a novice fisherman.

    We attended a dinner show here through Air Canada. The food was good and the "international" show was ok. I would have preferred a Cuban show.

    The dancing afterwards was fun for the younger crowd, but we took a cab back to our resort early. Lots of strobe lights.

    The bathrooms were nasty, especially compared to the cleanliness at our resort.

    the bus was more then half full which means tourist are venturing out of the resort to explore.This is a good sign because it safe to travel out.The fare was $ 5.00 US to take you from your hotel to Cayo Guillermo which the last stop.You can stop in between however if you're not to familiar with the area I suggest stay on and go for a ride.

    August 2019: I contacted the school for 2pax x 1week kite equipment rental, total 980$
    They pushed me to buy online (via a Canadian site) in advance despite of any weather forecast, with such messages:
    “but you will need to reserve the equipment online in our web site before your arrival to Cuba.”
    “you have to book the rental 2 weeks in advance to be sure it will be ready at the school.”
    “During the week if you can't ride because the weather is not good we will return the full amount to your credit card.”

    When my son and I arrived, we found very few, very old, all taped kites of various brand (not Core and Fone as advertised on the web). Bars mismatched and peeled. Boards with torned straps and broken fins.

    In total, 1x17mq Core (2017), 1x14mq Fone (2017), 1x13mq Slingshot (2018, left during lunch at the sun by the instructor the first day and broke out), 1x12mq beginner level, 1x12 under repairing, a couple of 9mq. These were all kites available for 2 persons even if I paid in advance “to be sure it will be ready at the school”.

    The first 3 days there was light wind as normal in August (3 days with an average of 13 knots) but with some good equipment, we could have some fun. I was obliged to use the 17 all three days (with lighter and stronger wind), my son used 12 one day, 14 the other day, and one day no other kite was available because the 14 was used for a lesson. The remaing 4 days the school was closed (for no wind), but the instructor left key available to use a SUP (we used 1 hour). We had no chance to discuss any refund locally, because the instructor (apologizing for the very poor quality of the equipment) suggested to write to the boss (never seen locally) via mail and the school was closed when we left.

    And when I wrote (and wrote again) to the online contact to have at least 50% of refund… surprise! For mr. Leandro Jonte (the boss, I guess) all was perfect! Material was regularly maintained and fixed and it work perfectly. He said I received a VIP service, even free SUP. I broke the kites. And if I really used poor equipment (I provided photos), the photos I sent were not part of the School equipment but I choosed the personal instructor equipment. Ahahah! Very creative!

    Story short, I did not get any refund, or any additional reply. So please avoid to make the same mistake I did trusting them. I threw away 980$. What a pity!
