Choosing a vacation travel destination can be a slightly difficult task for many people. Sure, you could go to the same old boring places that everybody else goes to like Disney World or the Grand Canyon or Branson Missouri’s Silver Dollar City… or you can branch out to slightly more exotic but still boring places like Paris or London or even Hong Kong; and while these are slightly better choices, they’re still the same old boring things that just about everybody does.
Why not choose a vacation that is slightly more exotic and definitely more exciting?
Might I suggest Havana Cuba?
Havana has many things going for it and not the least of all is the fact that it’s so very close to the United States, geographically speaking. This means that you won’t spend all of your time sitting in an airplane when you could be enjoying a jewel of the Caribbean.
Yes, it’s true that Havana is still a city in a communist country, one of the last communist countries left on the planet to be precise; but you should be perfectly safe nonetheless.
This isn’t your normal vacation with your normal tourist destinations. You can expect to explore beautiful Spanish colonial architecture as well as breathtakingly stunning beaches instead of the same cookie cutter tourist shops found elsewhere.
Havana is the capital of Cuba but it doesn’t have the typical consumer trappings that you might expect in a regular capital city.
Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean with 750 miles of mountain ranges (including the Sierra Maestra, the Cordilla de los Organos, and the Sierra del Escambray) and miles of vast beautiful plains. It has over 200 exotic looking bays and nearly 300 beautiful beaches.
The worst time of year to go is between May and November because this is the rainy season when you can get caught in terrible weather including, potentially, hurricanes. Any other time of the year you can expect a wonderful vacation.
What exactly is there to do in Havana? It’s a good question. The simple answer is you can find yourself a beach that you like and just relax for a week or two. If you want a little more activity then you can always explore the rich culture, the music, food, and even the art of the area. And there’s always the mountains too!
Fidel Castro has been sick for a long time now and his brother Raul runs the government these days. Raul is seen as more open to the Western world and Cuba as a whole is slowing beginning to open up. Now’s the time to take advantage of this great travel destination opportunity!
Most people don’t think of Cuba as a tourist destination but if you don’t want to be like everybody else then I suggest you take a serious look at everything Cuba has to offer. You’ll be more than happy you did.
