Why Travel To Cuba?

Walking down the streets of Cuba is like walking back in time with classic cars whizzing by, old architecture surrounding you, and locals who look at you and smile instead of stare at their phones.  Kind and curious Cubans will teach you to salsa dance, you’ll hear music played on street corners, and smell the sweet scent of cigars on the city streets. Cuba has a raw, desperate feel to it, likely from a long history of their political turmoil. When we visit, we direct all of our efforts to supporting the local people while experiencing the real Cuba.

Unspoiled by American corporations, you won’t find any Starbucks or McDonald’s on these street corners. Instead, grannies will offer you cups of coffee for a few pennies and rooftop bars in Havana will have cheap mojitos you’ll gulp between turns on the dance floor.   For history and political buffs, you’ll notice no billboards for consumer products, you’ll see socialism and its affects with your own eyes while doing your part to support everyday people.
