Our man near Havana, Playa Ancón. The fish ain't biting here.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

My first morning on the Playa Ancón, which is home to few resort hotels.

This stretch of the beach in front of Hotels Ancón & Brisas is probably the best on the peninsula. The beach is not far from ancient City of Trinidad, so even Cuban families come to enjoy the sea.

The fisherman is French Canadian, but not very smart one. The Cubans were fishing about 1 km west of this spot, were I have seen plenty of fish with my goggles.

Interesting scene, Graham Greene and Ernest Hemingway must have frightened the fish an driven them elsewhere.Well captured very nice atmosphere, LIKE 57, regards Lucien

Lucien, you got all the literary references!! ;-)

I did not see anybody to catch fish in front of the hotel. Bit farther, yes, but only Cubans, not tourist.
