Cuba – The Land Of Salsa

The timeworn, salsa dancing country of Cuba is a rollercoaster of exhilarating cultural experiences to be had. Whatever you thought you knew about this vibrant country goes right out the window the moment you step off the plane. Cuba literally feels like you’ve travelled back in time. Free of modern interference, Cuba’s cities and streets are almost unchanged since the days of wicked pirates sailing the Caribbean. Although Cuba’s lack of modernisation has its downsides, the untouched and perfectly preserved architecture of its cities are a wonder to behold. As you walk down the cobbled streets of Havana and Trinidad, a story unravels right before your eyes.
