Gran Car, Santa Ana e/ Marino y Boyeros, Nuevo Vedado (Ministerio de Transporte), La Habana, Cuba
America isn't the only country infatuated with the automobile. Cuba loves its cars too. What's considered a classic car in the United States is just a daily driver in this country limited to fixing up fixer-uppers due to trade issues. I'm betting...

518 Calle Reforma, Trinidad 62600, Cuba
In recent years Cubans have been permitted to open their own restaurant businesses called paladars. Davimart in Trinidad is one of the most successful of the paladars. Here a photo of our dinner shows why. We found good paladars pretty much...

153 Obispo, La Habana, Cuba
Stop by the Ambos Mundos Hotel in Old Havana. Ernest Hemingway spent many years living in a hotel room here and the view from the rooftop restaurant and bar is breathtaking. Have a cool, refreshing mojito after visiting the small Hemingway museum...

Santiago de Cuba, Cuba
A trip to Santiago de Cuba wouldn't be complete without a visit to San Pedro de la Roca Castle, also known as Castillo del Morro. This imposing fortress on the bay protected the city from pirates and military attack and is considered both...

Old Havana, Havana, Cuba
Wandering the streets of Habana Vieja, you'll see many things - bike carts selling vegetables, markets, pigs being delivered to butchers, lovers kissing, and gorgeous old cars just to name a few. What really brought a smile to my face was watching...

Staying at a casa particular is the best cultural immersion opportunity you'll find while visiting Old Havana. Private rooms are rented out of a family-owned home and costs about $30 per night. Casa Habana is owned by Carmen (photo) and her son...

Calle San José, Trinidad 62600, Cuba
If ever there was an image that conjures up Cuba, it has to be of an older man smoking a classic cigar. And here you have it. These guys were fixtures in the old town near the central plaza of Trinidad. Each day during my one week stay, I'd find...

Trinidad, Cuba
Everybody knows and adores the refreshing, minty Cuban mojito as well as the piña colada (with or without the two fingers of rum), but not many have tried or know about the canchánchara. I stumbled upon this drink while visiting the Sleeping...
Save Place
Las Terrazas, Cuba
The traditional Cuban lunch - cooked over a cast iron, wood burning stove - served at the self-sustaining community at Las Terrazas, was the best food I ate in Cuba. The chickens had lived their lives scratching freely around the beautiful grounds...

Trinidad 62600, Cuba
On a recent trip to Cuba, I came across this local man in Trinidad. He was anxious to pose with his chicken for visitors. Trinidad is one of the finest colonial towns I've seen and is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can easily walk...
