Why You Should Take an Educational Trip to Dive Cuba – Via www.deeperblue.com

Cuba may be one of the best diving destinations in the world. For decades, Cuba has been a favorite dive destination for Canadian divers. The combination of great dive sites, year-round diving and an interesting culture is the perfect draw. Cuba has over 500 dive sites which outnumbers Cayman’s 365 dive site program.

Destinations such as Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen), Canarreos Archipelago, Jardines del Rey (Garden of the Kings), Varadero and the Hicacos Peninsula, are well-known to Canadian divers but not as well-known to the rest of us. The primary reason is that Cuba is not widely marketed as a scuba diving destination.

Tourists from the United States form the largest number of tourist in the Caribbean. Also, The majority of scuba divers are from the United States. We, therefore, find that most of the marketing is targetted to that market. However, The US does not allow its citizens to visit Cuba for tourism. So marketing from Cuba is lacking.

Parrandas Carnival: The splendor lives on #CulturalHeritage

Original Post Granma Cuba

Throughout my life, I’ve heard friends in Remedios talk about the Parrandas (traditional carnival-like street parties), just like my father who could spend hours in conversation with other lovers of the tradition. Since 1980, he has worked on carrozas (floats) and the preparation of the Plaza for both of the competing neighborhoods, and even those of other towns in the island’s center. More than once, as a teenager, I raised the banner of my neighborhood in small-scale Parrandas I organized.

Awaiting the celebrations and their magic has all of Cuba talking. Perhaps these same sentiments led another Remedios native, Rafael Lara González, to follow the path that led him to the cultural phenomena as a Popular Traditional Culture specialist. Now that the Parrandas of Cuba’s central region have been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, he offers us his opinions.

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.
