Eating Like a Local in Havana

Whoever said Cuban food sucks must be a bit confused or they’re probably just talking about Cuban food in Miami – where such menus include just ropa vieja, beans and rice. But there’s so much more to it than just that. Part of the food experience in Cuba is to understand the way Cubans interact with food. As anyone that’s ever gone to school and learned a bit of history would know, it isn’t the easiest for some food staples to make it...

Alaska Airlines Seattle to Havana Inaugural Trip Report

As you’ve probably read, we just got back from the Alaska Airlines inaugural trip to Havana Cuba, and it was AMAZING! Here’s a first hand look at the inaugural flight. The party was still going on as we boarded, but since we were flying first and we wanted to get a lot of undisturbed pictures from the flight, we were the first to board. TV cameras and reporters were waiting with pictures and microphones as we boarded. It was quite the...

Alaska Airlines’ Havana Inaugural Flight Party

As we arrived the night before, we headed to the check-in area to scope out what preparations would be in store for the upcoming flight. We noticed that there would be a special check-in area just for the Cuba flights, so with that in mind we knew right where to go. There was a special VIP and Media check in desk… for some reason we weren’t on the list… I guess we just need to be a little more famous first. Once we checked...

Alaska Airlines’ Cuba Check-in Mess

Travel to Cuba is still not allowed for tourist purposes and you must fall within one of 12 categories for travel. Among the options are Medical, Professional, Research, Religious, and Journalism. Because Alaska’s website makes sure to mention that you need to get a Visa before you travel, we made sure to order ours with plenty of time (over 3 weeks). We ordered it through an overseas travel company and they arrived! In reality, the...

Review, Four Points LAX Airport

Two days before we left for Havana, I realized that I hadn’t yet booked our accommodations for our overnight in LAX. Our flight landed at 9:30 pm into LAX and left at 8:55 am the next morning. Luckily, we found a great deal at $89 a night at the Four Points LAX airport. The shuttle service is continuous and non-stop 24 hours to and from the airport, so just head out of the baggage claim area and look for the red “Hotel Shuttles” sign....

Greetings from Havana, Cuba!

Greetings from AMAZING Havana, Cuba! Over the past few days, there has been a lot of talk on some of the blogs all over the web (not just on boarding area) about how Cuba sucks. I mean, I won’t sugar coat it, people have been saying some pretty harsh things. But, as we’re sitting in our room with free wifi (and FAST wifi), sipping on a 50 cent mojito and eating homemade chocolate for $1, I can’t help but...

SkyJet, The fastest route from Boracay to Manila

The Caticlan airport (MPU) offers service via three airlines with any regularity; Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, and the lovely little guy, SkyJet. Skyjet offers a fleet of 2, yup, you got it, 2 aircraft, and they run schedule service back and forth between Manila and MPU airport. Because they are the only “jet” service (the other airlines use prop planes) they offer the fastest service, at only around 35 minutes flight time....
