From white sand beaches to colonial style buildings, there is so much more to Cuba! The Cuban cities are so diverse, it’s hard not to fall in love; there is something for everyone. Whether you are looking to relax and sip on a mojito, or you’re looking for some history and adventure, Cuba has got it all. The white powdery sand beaches, where turquoise water meets the shore, are pristine to laze the day away.
You’ll find beautiful, colourful, historic buildings throughout Havana. You’ll hear vibrant Cuban music while walking on the cobbled streets. For a breath-taking view, visit the Malecon; stretching 8 miles along the Havana Coast, explore it while driving in a beautiful, old 1950’s car as the wind blows through your hair. It’ll be an unforgettable experience.
Looking for nature? Take an excursion to the Vinales and explore the caves and lush greenery. Cuba is known for their local artisan markets with beautiful wooden sculptures, art, and souvenirs. While shopping, stop in at local restaurants and enjoy some of the local cuisine and do try the Spanish coffee.
One of my most memorable experiences was an evening performance at a resort with gorgeous flamboyant costumes and exquisite dancers and aerialist. Their strength and poise were just breath taking. What I couldn’t believe was how little they had to work with in terms of props and equipment. No safety nets or mats to cushion a fall. It was pure raw talent and it definitely showed. By the end of the show, you’ve made wonderful friends sitting next to you, bonding over the performers and their talent.
