Cuba is vibrant and captivating! It constantly feels like you're on a the set of a movie. Unexpected and amazing sights are around every corner and flowing from the streets. Always have your camera ready because you never know what you'll be seeing next!
People have asked so many questions about going to Cuba. The big secret is... it isn't a secret at all! So I want to share it with everyone! Flying Miami airport offers straight flights to Cuba. Flights may also be available in other US cities. I have also heard of people flying from Canada and Mexico. I used ABC Charters to fly to Havana.
I can say wholeheartedly, that I absolutely loved Cuba. Last month I stayed in Havana for a week and I still look at the pictures over and over. The colors were amazing, the cars were surreal and the people were absolutely delightful. I can't get over it. I'll need to return soon! Until then here are my favorite photos to inspire you to see it for yourself.
This Spring, I visited Havana, Cuba with Jakera. During my stay I lived, learned, ate and interacted with many of the locals.
My program provided lodging, meals, Spanish classes and local activities. I stayed in a Casa Particular with a very friendly host family, who all happened to be named Patricia - grandmother, mother and daughter.
Every morning at the Jakera house, we had homemade Cuban breakfast prepared for us. Breakfast was followed by a three-hour interactive Spanish class and then we had a home cooked lunch. During class we walked around the city, visited museums and even the beach. It was a truly magical experience!
For those who haven't been to Cuba this list will help you prepare for the ups and the downs. And for those who have been, this should be a reminder why Cuba is so great!
