Cigars, Castro, Communism, Che, Chevys … Cuba is much more than the sum of its clichés. Americans have been officially banned from traveling to Cuba since the revolution in the 1960's, but Canadians and Europeans have recently re-discovered its powdery beaches and seaside resorts. Cuba's beaches are admittedly stunning, but the most enjoyable part of travel here is the opportunity to delve into the once-insular Cuban culture. Visit the nation’s capital of Havana, where classic cars and buildings stuck in time provide the backdrop to salsa music, the smell of fried plantains and a love for cultural pursuits rarely matched in other countries. Venture away from the city and you’ll find modern beach resort towns like Varadero and quieter seaside towns like Baracoa, or venture inland for hiking amidst fog-enshrouded mountains. Cuban food is, simply, delicious. Based on the simple pairing of rice and beans, the influence of island inhabitants -- Spanish colonizers, African slaves, Chinese workers, native islanders -- have brought together a stew of flavors and ingredients.

    My homeland and not because of that I gave it a good rating. You will find in Cuba friendly locals who are cultivated and very hospitable.
