A seaport city, the population is approx. 250,000 and built on 3 rivers and also along the bay of Matanzas. There seems to be the big city affectation here, with much more bustle and industry in evidence. We ate at a government sponsored restaurant here and invited Osvaldo to eat with us there. The cost of the lunch for 3 people, including our 4 pina coladas was a whopping $12.
This view was of the city centre from the top of a hill as we left from the restaurant, hastily taken rom the back of the taxi
