Nobody should make the mistake to reduce Cuba to just another Caribbean vacation destination. Honestly… don’t. Cuba is much more than that… Believe me, if you plan your stay in Cuba independently on your own and if you don’t stick to Varadero, Cuba will quickly take its place in the list of your most favourite destinations. It is on top of mine!
Santiago de Cuba is the second biggest city after Havana and plays a very important role in Cuba’s history and culture. This is the place where the Cuban Revolution started and again this is the place where almost all Cuban Music genres were born.
Trinidad has to be part of your Cuba travel itinerary. You’ll love the relaxed atmosphere. It is as if the time stopped in 18th century in this beautiful town. Trinidad is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which causes high amount of tourists but don’t let this fact stop you of visiting Trinidad.
You want to get to know Cuba? Your first stop should be Havana. No doubt on that! Havana is a 2,5 million kick ass city full of history, impressive architecture and lively music.
Imagine a country where the time stopped ticking. Imagine a country which takes you to a time travel to 60s. Imagine a country where people are nice and caring.
Welcome to Cuba!
