Walking Tour of Old Havana Via InsightCuba

Our Weekend in Havana tour is far more than a mere brush with exotic culture – it’s a full-on immersive discovery allowing you to not only pay witness to Cuba’s dynamic rhythm and color, but to dive right in and become part of the canvas. 

Like the fiery salsa rhythms that can be heard rippling through its city streets, Havana springs to life with warmth and vivaciousness that never stops taking you by surprise. Removed from the quiet fields of sugar cane and mango trees that thrive further afield, Cuba’s largest city is an urban metropolis – a place of rambling Colonial architecture, endless adventure and unfettered discovery.

Safer in Cuba By James Ingram / Via www.stlamerican.com

In East St. Louis, assault weapon fire has become so common that one hardly awakens from one’s nightly slumber because of the sheer frequency of shots being randomly fired.

Neighboring St. Louis is no different, with “We Must Stop Killing Each Other” signs prominently displayed on lawns to illustrate the dilemma of an escalating murder rate, which has gotten out of control, with violence and shootings spilling over into once safe suburban communities.

Cuba gears up for high tourist season – Via Xinhuanet

travel-to-cuba.jpg

Cuba’s tourism industry is preparing for the year-end high season, hoping to see an increase in foreign visitors despite deteriorating ties with the United States.

Considered the most dynamic sector of the national economy, tourism has suffered from travel restrictions reimposed by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Regulations that once again make it difficult for Americans to travel to Cuba — following a brief period of detente under Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama — have led U.S. airlines to scale back flights to Havana and other Cuban cities.

NOT TO BE MISSED: NEW YEAR’S IN #HAVANA – Via Cuba Educational Travel

Related:

Cubans, romantic and family-oriented, celebrate hard on holidays and there are no bigger than Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day and, of course, New Year’s Eve. There are big turn outs for political demonstrations for May Day (worker’s day) and July 26th (Independence Day), but the heart and soul of Cubans come out on New Year’s. There’s no better day to experience the island and its people!

Cuban families come out in force, roasting pigs, dancing reggaeton, hugging and kissing and wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Phone lines for the state-run telecom company jam up from all the messages and calls of good luck, love and happiness, both within Cuba and coming from Miami and elsewhere. Taxi drivers make big bucks on crowded streets but it’s almost impossible to find a ride because no payday is high enough for a Cuban to leave loved ones alone on this special night. Waiters, bartenders and front desk staff take care of you (kind of), but also tend to their colleagues and the specialness this day represents.
