Why Travel To 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.
