Que Vola! (means “What’s Up” in Cuban)
A hundred miles from Cuba, Key West is an island at the southernmost tip of Florida Keys.
Given its location, 90 miles from Cuba, the island was a natural port of call for Spanish-speaking fishermen, beginning in the early 1800s. Though English still dominates throughout the Keys, our friend and Irish’s new hubby Juan, who is part Puerto Rican was very at home speaking espanol with some of the locals.
Going around in a scooter is the best way to see Keys. I specifically enjoyed the sea view and soft breeze along South Roosevelt, which was the way back to our hotel. Most hotels can hook you up with rental companies.
Driving around a car is also uncomplicated. Maps are everywhere and locals are more than friendly to help you with directions.
Key West is a come-as-you-are, let-your-hair-down, laid-back town of picket fences, eclectic shops, and warm personalities. Overall, it gave such a charming vibe that managed to make even an adult club look wholesome.
