Cuba is one of the only places in the world you travel to where you feel like you’ve stepped back in time and onto a 1950’s movie set! You can never spend too much time wandering around Havana, admiring the crumbling buildings and old classic cars or salsa dancing in one of the many music halls. Cuba is a vibrant country with friendly locals and the most delicious rum cocktails, it’s certainly one of my favourite places in Latin America.
Cuba is one of those destinations that ticks all the boxes. Unique culture, vibrant people, beautiful beaches, lush countryside and a fascinating history. You have to visit this marvellously diverse island that’s stuck in its very own time warp. With classic cars, charming cobbled streets and salsa in the air, it’s a country you won’t soon forget. The real heart of Cuba is its people and their love of life, which can be found everywhere you go. So pay it a visit and join that impromptu street party.
From rolling your own cigars in Viñales to salsa dancing in Havana it certainly isn’t hard for me to understand why it’s such a popular destination. My own personal highlights whilst visiting Cuba are whizzing around in a corvette in Havana to plodding through the stunning countryside of Viñales on horseback! Staying in the casa paticulares left me with some fond memories and allowed me to embrace the real Cuba.
