We crested the hill and there they were, cars everywhere and all jockeying for position.
First task was to drop the car off at Florida Parking which is a little airport parking facility that only charges $5.99 per day and has a shuttle to and from the airport.
|Waiting for the shuttle|
This is the first time in my history of winter vacations where the temperature at the departure airport (Miami 27C) was higher than the destination airport in Mexico. (Cancun 26C) It kind of distracts from the whole purpose of a winter holiday.
Our plane came in and we boarded and off we went.
|Our plane awaits|
|Taking off from Miami|
The flight is 1 hour and 20 minutes and flies very close to Cuba. It was a hazy day so all we could really see was plumes of smoke from factories.
|Smoke from factories or electric generating plants|
After going through immigration and customs (We pressed the button and got a red light!!) we headed to our hotel on a shuttle.
|Arriving at our Resort|
|I'm the oldest so get the one by the bathroom...|
|Yes that is a Jacuzzi on the balcony. Nice.|
