Our Take on Travelling to Cuba...
You've probably heard stories about Cuba, about the Castro brothers' regime, the harsh conditions the locals live under and the extensive communism that affects every individual living on the island.
However, the surprises of Cuba will begin to hit you the second you get off the plane and walk into the airport.
It is as if time stopped in Cuba.
The airport is antiquated. The locals drive around in antique, worn out, cars. All clothes are hung outside to dry because there are no dryers. Air conditioners are found only in the nicest places on the island. There is very limited cell phone service, and, when you find it, it's expensive.
Just as technological advancements are rare in Cuba, private businesses are even more uncommon. The ability to be a truly successful entrepreneur is one of the many privileges of living in the United States.
But, Havana is a beautiful, old-fashioned city. You will feel genuinely immersed when you sit on the Malecón or walk through the streets of Old Havana. The city is the combination of colonialism, capitalism and communism in one. At first glance, the city seems like it is falling apart. The site of dilapidated buildings is common, but you can see the grandeur and beauty within them.
The buildings have a European styling; the people have a Caribbean flair. Music and art abound on the island.
You'll have to come with an open mind. Cuba won't be a luxurious vacation, but it will be one you won't forget.
