However, Cuba’s revolution in the 1960’s is the biggest reason that this country feels different than any other. It’s one of the last places to experience the impact communism had on the world. Depending on your perspective, this whole country could seem like a world heritage site. Even though its is small in size, there are plenty of things to do in Cuba that will make your trip memorable.

Where to Stay in Havana

Where to stay in Havana

Havana is Cuba’s largest city and with U.S. restrictions on travel loosening up, it’s becoming more popular each day. Until 2016, Americans were largely restricted from visiting Cuba, and a lack of American imported products meant Cuba remained somewhat frozen in time. Most notably, seeing and renting vintage vehicles was a popular activity in Havana. While U.S. laws have been fluctuating recently, citizens of other countries have been enjoying travel to Cuba for years. Havana is most likely where you will enter and leave the country, and you will want to spend a few days there before exploring the rest of the country. In addition to a growing number of hotels available, a popular way to stay in Cuba is to stay in a “casa particular” or a private home. These are increasingly available on sites like Airbnb, so you’re not out of luck if you don’t know anyone in…
