Why Cuba Should be on Your Next Travel List


If you’re looking for a unique place to visit on your next trip, you must consider Cuba. It’s not always on people’s list since the country isn’t very open for tourism. It also doesn’t have a great relationship with several countries. However, if you’re willing to go through the hoops to get a visa to visit Cuba, you must do it. Here are the reasons why it would be worth it.

You will be among the fewest people to brag about it

Again, it’s not easy to get a visa to enter Cuba. There are only a few people who are given such an opportunity. Not many people know about the country, either. Therefore, if you’re looking for an opportunity to brag about your travel experience due to its uniqueness, you should consider Cuba.

It remained the same over the years

Imagine seeing history right before your eyes. Cuba showcases architecture that survived since the 1950’s. You can also see technology that remains in use while it has been faced out elsewhere. Even old vehicles and clothing are still around. Time travel is still not possible, and it’s the closest you can get.

The weather is perfect

It doesn’t matter what time of the year you decide to visit the country. The weather will always be great. It’s sunny and perfect for a trip to the beach, which Cuba has a lot of. During some days, it can be more humid than usual, but you will barely feel it. When you’re always around pools and beaches, you have means of cooling off.

Cheap beverages

Cuba Libre

You might decide against visiting some Caribbean countries due to the excessive cost. Buying beer and other beverages might cost you a lot. It’s not the same in Cuba. A can of beer only costs under $2 in most places. The same is true for its restaurants.

The beaches and architecture are stunning

Since the country isn’t a common tourist destination, you can expect pristine beaches and white sands. The views are stunning wherever you go. Whether you decide to visit the Eastern beaches or head to the historic cities, you will be satisfied. A week might not even be enough to discover the beauty of Cuba.

It’s a musical country

If you’re a music lover and you want to listen to unique live music, Cuba is the perfect place. Music schools can be found all over the country. You will also find live performances in hotels and restaurants. From rap to jazz or African music, everything is available to satisfy your musical desires.

For these reasons, it’s time to consider a trip to Cuba. Again, you will go through a lot to make it happen, but you won’t regret it. When you’re with the best people, it will be a memorable trip. Before leaving, make sure you understand the dos and don’ts. You should also know the country’s history and the best ways to deal with the locals.
