    Cuba

    Major Tourist Attractions: Old Havana, Malecn, Sierra Maestra, Morro Castle, Floridita

    As Cuba opens up to more and more tourism, find out the best ways to enjoy this Caribbean country. It's amazing how two vastly different types of travelers seem to flock to Cuba. The island nation has the potential draw for both visitors looking for a luxury beach experience in the Caribbean and more intense travelers looking for an in-depth local experience. In Cuba, you could find yourself sipping mojitos on the perfect sands of an all-inclusive resort, or hitch-hiking through the countryside in the back of a 1950s Ford pickup. The beauty of Cuba is that the adventure is yours to choose. Whether it's the comfort of a seaside resort or the intimate dwellings of a local homestay, there is something for everyone in this country that is warmed by the year-round summer sun. Adventure-chasers and sun-seekers alike agree that Cuba is the type of destination travelers yearn for.

    Cuba offers travelers some absolutely unique experiences. If you can pull yourself away from your glass of ice-cooled Cuba Libre and into the countryside you'll find the point on which Christopher Columbus first set foot in the Americas. In old Havana, you'll fall witness to colonial architecture that seems to have stood still in time over the past couple decades. Or, head out to the Sierra Maestra and fall awed by the vastness of mountains that were once hide-outs for Guerrillas under the command of Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevera. Today, at the base of these green hills, farmers cultivate tobacco set to be spun into cigars and labeled under such famous names as Cohiba and Bolivar.

    Politics aside, Cuba is set to become one of the world's fastest growing tourism destinations. Full of history, adventure, nature, and eco-tourism opportunities, there are few destinations on the planet with the type of potential that Cuba has when it comes to tourism. A friendly smile, and perhaps a nice bottle of rum and a cigar await.

    Some potential travel activities in Cuba:

    • Lounge away in the sun at a 5-star beach resort in Veradero
    • Explore the stunning architecture in Old Havana
    • Take in a tasting at one of the many rum distilleries
    • Stand on the beach Christopher Columbus “discovered” the Americas
    • Visit a cigar factory and try your hand and rolling your own Cuban cigar
    • Go hiking in the beautiful Sierra Maestro
    • See the Che Guevera Mausoleum
    • Explore the old city of colonial Trinadad
    • Take in one of the most colorful and personal Carnivals in the world
