And Two Months Later – Cuba and The Yucatan

The Travel Bug had been on starvation rations for a couple of years. Finally, in January 2015, the time had come to set that critter loose again. And thus passed the following two months:

The plan:
30 days in Cuba starting and ending with Havana
30 days in Southern Mexico, starting and ending with Cancun

The reality:

–skipped Havana at the end, why leave Viñales a minute sooner than necessary?

–went on to Valladolid at first dawn on return from Havana to Cancun. Cancun is just where you fly in and bus out.

The itinerary, as it developed, as all that was planned was the above. [entries below will eventually convert to live links]
