    Practice economy of language. Used at a private function or public display, personalised wine labels for your next celebration or function.

    Hi there, I recently spent 2 weeks in Varadero, Cuba for my honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing…except for one major disappointment. One of oir tours included the Bellamar Cave. After getting to the largest stalactite, I slipped and fell down 3 stairs to the next landing. I scraped one ankle and twisted the other one. My husband managed to get me on my feet and help me back up the stairs to the entrance. My big problem with what happened is the tour guide for the cave didn’t even ask if I was okay….he wasn’t at all concerned! I was quite surprised at this as everyone we had met thus far indicated a very friendly, courteous nation of people. Even once I was outside an older woman(who had nothing to do with the cave) was very concerned about me. This fall caused me to not be abke to do anymore tours for our 2nd week but I was quite happy being poolside at our resort with my foot up.
    Do the cave tour guides get ANY training?
    Thank you
    Sue (disappointed visitor)

      The caves are beautiful itself, sorry you could not enjoy them because of an untrained guide, I do not know if the guides have some sort of training but I imagine that they have to,I hope you get better and keep traveling
