Cuba has fastly become the number one destination this year upon travelers, especially Americans. Everyone is so curious about this untouched island of the Caribbean and its history. But it is changing, slowly, but changing.
I had to visit this island before the dramatic changes start happening (it’s already happening), so I ventured off on a solo trip to this beautiful island. At time Cuba reminded me of my home country Israel, more so of Tel Aviv, with their beautiful beaches in Santa Maria and the boardwalk in Havana called the Malecón. At other times it reminded me more of the Dominican Republic, but in the bigger scheme of things, it’s like nowhere else in the world.
I visited Cuba for 6 days, I spend most of my time in Havana but I also ventured off to the beautiful beaches of Santa Maria and to Vinales where the tobacco plantations are. I rode horses like a cowgirl or my version of a female Django, I also rode in the classic 1950’s car, tried the local foods, met amazing people and took an endless amount of photos.
I’m a hardcore traveler — a warrior traveler, I don’t stop until I’m about to drop and even still I keep on exploring. On most days, I walked 8-10miles around Havana and I can gladly say I got a good taste of everything this city and country has to offer, although I’m sure there is so much more.
