Culture, gastronomy, and music:
Culture: Cuba is rich in culture and history. Be sure to visit historical sites such as Old Havana, Trinidad, Pinar del Rio, and Cienfuegos. Explore museums, art galleries, and take part in local cultural events.
Gastronomy: Cuban cuisine is unique and influenced by various cultures, including Spanish, African, and Caribbean. Try traditional dishes such as rice and beans, ropa vieja (shredded meat), mojitos, and pina coladas. Do not miss the opportunity to eat at paladares, private restaurants offering delicious and authentic food.
GEEK INFORMATION: This country isn't just made up of mojitos and Cuba Libre. The daiquiri became one of Cuba's most popular drinks because it was Hemingway's favourite (there's even a special daiquiri with the recipe altered by him). When the American writer was in Cuba, he was a regular at the El Floridita bar and it is now a mandatory stop in Havana.
Music: Music is a fundamental part of Cuban culture. Enjoy live performances of salsa, son cubano, and rumba music
