Photo report by Caridad
Perhaps it’s my personal taste, but I believe that one of the provinces where you’ll find more beautiful people is the most eastern of our provinces: Guantanamo. Undoubtedly, the issue of beauty, like everything else, is quite relative, and each person has their own preferences. It’s likely that Joseito Fernandez shared my same opinion when he created that famous song Guantanamera.
When I was on my way to that province, the only things that came to mind were images of blazing temperatures and the total drought that had attacked the area a few years ago. However, the landscape was much nobler and greener than what I’d expected.
The city was also much more pleasant than I imagined, although without the charm of Camaguey or the magnificence of some areas of Cienfuegos. I liked downtown Guantanamo, in constant recovery, for the variety of its cultural and dining choices, which is not very common in other parts of the country.
Walking through its streets turned out to be amusing, because the men there are very uninhibited and imaginative when flattering women with their piropos (compliments), plus they’re without the aggressiveness demonstrated in Havana or Santiago, to mention only two provinces.
