One of the things that makes Cuba a unique travel destination is that it feels like a piece of remote paradise that hasn’t been affected by time, in the best way possible. Vintage cars are omnipresent, and you would be hard-pressed to find a single familiar franchise. You will quickly understand why writer Ernest Hemingway, whose traces are felt all over Havana, fell in love with the country and its people. In fact, it’s rumored that after the writer was forced to leave his beloved home in Cuba after 20 years of living there, it increasingly added to the depression that he suffering from. The mishmash of eclectic and colorful architecture—borrowing from Colonial, Neo-Classical, and Art Deco periods—make it one of the most visually stunning cities you’ll ever experience, and the domestic history, unknown to so many Americans due to previously strained relations, is one that begs to be told to visitors. Not least adding to the charm of this city are the people who try to make your visit a personal one, as well as the live music and dancing that take over every and any empty corner of space.
