Cuba is becoming so much more popular now, so get there soon if you can, before tourism becomes too mainstream. A unique and wonderful combination of some characterful cities and towns, great beaches and lovely sea, colonial architecture, beautiful landscapes in the south around the Sierra Maestra, and fascinating history with the likes of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and legendary names like Hemingway, not to mention the rum, cigars and the wonderful salsa and rhumba music.
Any Cuban journey starts in Havana. Her faded beauty is legendary, and the Hemingway stories only add to the story. Havana is hands down the most appealing city in the Caribbean, and one of the top five scrumptious Latin American destinations too. It’s beginning to rise up from its ruins with a chunk of the tourist money being channelled into sprucing up Habana Vieja, the old colonial centre. Once fortified against the threat of pirates and colonial rivals, the seductive city has risen from the ashes through the painstaking restoration work of city architect Eusebio Leal, who had to bring some restoration artisans out of retirement to realise his dream and pass their wisdom on to the next generation. Cobbled streets lead to recently polished Baroque churches, castles and palaces. Plazas have been returned to their former glory, their fountains flowing once more, and their facades re-rendered attentively. Along the seafront of Havana, the malecón, the strains of salsa waft from the rebooted sound systems of vintage Cadillacs and Buicks, and the facades of grandiose seafront buildings are being slowly renovated.
