Climbing Cuba Travelogue
Tuesday, March 6th at 6:30 pm
Who knew Cuba had rock climbing? Traveling to Cuba was one of the most unique trips Gwen and Jess Asmussen have done. While researching trips that were inexpensive, offered a variety of adventure and culture, and close enough to the US to do in a week, Cuba popped up.

This couple has traveled all around the world climbing limestone and other rocks, but Cuba solidified itself as some of the best they have ever climbed on.

The people were amazing, welcoming, and friendly and don’t mind Americans. They actually seem happy to see people traveling there. In terms of a short, easy, inexpensive, amazing adventure trip, Cuba didn’t disappoint.
