Took a trip down to the Yucatan this past July/August for the purpose of finding whale sharks (We tried & failed in Honduras in April) with my awesome friend & ex roommate Schern. The search was much easier than what we had anticipated so we both soon realized that we’ll quickly get bored of Mexico…and purely out of spontaneity, we booked a trip to Havana and the rest…well…take a look for yourself:
