Cuba is all the rage with Americans right now (and for good reason) so we had to get down there to see for ourselves! And, luckily for us, native New Yorker and friend of Like A Local, Rita McNiff, has started her own venture called LIKE A CUBAN. We cannot recommend her highly enough! If you're interested to book a trip with some amazing activities, let us know and we will be happy to make an intro!
We met lots of incredible people, learned about the revolution and it's modern day ramifications, learned how to salsa, enjoyed lots of live music (day and night) and had many memorable meals. And threw back more than a few mojitos and Cuba libres!
Here are a few highlights from our trip:
Tour of Havana and Old Havana by convertible (57 Chevy of course!)
Country living in Vinales
Trinidad - the town that time forgot (in a good way!)
Live Music (we spent an evening with famous Cuban musician Ray Fernandez)
Salsa Lessons on a roof with dancers from the Tropicana
Dinner and dancing at Fabrica de Arte
If you hear anyone tell you that the food isn't good, they didn't go to the right places! The internet situation is tricky, but if you plan ahead, it's pretty great to only check email once a day. We can't recommend Cuba enough, especially if you plan your trip with Like A Cuban.
