Eyes on Manzanillo, Cuba

Photo report by Caridad

HAVANA TIMES, July 18 -Manzanillo is one of those cities you never want to leave.  Perhaps for the presence of the sea, something that is indispensable for those of us who live on an island.  Or maybe because of its people, who are as kind and sincere as those of Pinar del Rio Province, on the other end of the country.

Manzanillo is in Granma Province, to the south-east of Cuba.  Its main park is the most beautiful on the island.  I believe that the readers of Havana Times will think the same as me.  Even if you haven’t visited you’ll admire it for its beauty.  You’ll want to see it up close up, and later feel hurt the moment you have to part.

We shouldn’t leave Manzanillo before going for a walk along its splendid seafront; without listening to the melody that singer Beny Moré dedicated to the city; without tasting the fish that they cook at the “Lisetera,” or without having talked with its people.  The bell tower of its main church is the best companion when feeling the rapture of the finest of this eastern Cuban city.

    Finally I have found a place in Cuba where I would like to spend time for a month or more.

    I love the sea, and the seeming opposite of a place where lots of rico tourists would like to go.

    Thanks for the beautiful pictures Caridad.

    Now I am praying for the silly US embargo to be lifted sooner than later so I can visit legally.

  • Es increíble la extraña belleza de esta ciudad y lo realmente apacible y bondadosa que es su gente. Soy manzanillero, solo que despues de mucho tiempo desandando mundo, al regresar alli tengo la convicción de que es una de las ciudades mas acogedoras de Cuba…
