Christmas in Cayo Levisa

After traveling West from Habana we stopped twice. Once behind the reef as it was getting too dark to go any farther inside the reef. The next morning we motored to Cayo Paraiso ,a haunt made famous by Ernest Hemingway.

The next day we worked our way behind the reef to Cayo Levisa. We heard there maybe a hotel on the Cay but were unsure due to the hurricane that came through a couple of years ago. From the anchorage it looked pretty deserted. We went to a dock and were  greeted by security who directed us to Guarda Frontera. While I did the paper work shuffle, Alison went to check out the other side of the island. It was a full on resort on a beautiful white sugar sand beach. Christmas Eve dinner was going to happen and we were able to book in for the festivities. A beautiful turkey,pork,fish dinner followed by a salsa show and a magic act. Fantastic evening as it was so unexpected.

 Nice downwind run. 10 knots of breeze and flat seas.Great sailing!
 Dinner on board. Lobsters are plentiful along the Northwest Coast.
