Everyone is scrambling to visit Cuba, a diverse island paradise seemingly stuck in the 60s. From classic car tours through Old Havana and bike tours through Vinales' tobacco country to scuba diving in the Bay of Pigs, flamingo watching in Cienfuegos and waterfall jumping and art walk tours in Trinidad - Cuba has something for everyone. The Eastern part of the island, which is visited far less frequently, offers some of the richest history and stunning natural landscapes, is the birthplace of salsa music, and is home to incredible architecture, spectacular national parks, wildlife reserves, and white sand beaches.
See my previous blog posts to help you plan your upcoming trip to Cuba and to get a feel for the day-to-day life that few tourists encounter.
