Be the first to go – Cuba’s welcoming Americans
Know before you go, Cuba is in a time warp, you step off the plane straight into the 1950’s. But a trip to Cuba, now that Americans are allowed, provides a glimpse of history, culture rich in art and music, a passion for life and tropical scenery as a backdrop for classic American automobiles.
Because of the limitations still in place, you need to be part of a people to people tour. You spend your time meeting teachers, doctors, dancers, professors, farmers, young entrepreneurs and having conversations about work, play, the arts, food, and general day to day life. The guided tours will take you to some of the best restaurants (called paladars) with opportunities to hear Cuba’s upbeat fusion of flamenco and Afro Cuban rhythms of salsa, rumba and Latin jazz.
A stop at the El Floridita Bar, birthplace of the Daiquiri cocktail and one of Hemingway’s favorite Havana bars is a must! El Floridita has been frequented by by Besides Hemingway, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Jean-Paul Sartre, Gary Cooper, Tennessee Williams, Spencer Tracey, Rocky Marciano, Ava Gardner and many of today’s celebrities. You will explore art galleries highlighting Cuban artists. Be sure to bring some back with you, the prices are so reasonable.
