hqdefault

By Angela Helm

If you’re like me, practically all of your friends, associates and even one rogue co-worker took a trip to Cuba in the last year (only one, however, bought this writer back a cigar, ahem). Without exception, all loved the island-nation filled with black people, salsa, and respite from life in the United States, rolled into a financially reasonable travel destination.

But those travel tales are starting to come fewer and farther between.

Naturally, the man with the big ass in the White House is to blame.

Travel Destinations: Holguin

Via Cuba Travel Site 

Holguin as a tourist destination, in Cuba, is distinguished by its authenticity, diversity and high level of sustainability. It also stands out for its picturesque relieves of great scenic value. It shows a set of tangible elements, loaded with cultural symbols and resulting in a platform for dialogue not only between cultures but also between man and nature.

The extraordinarily crystalline waters and white sand of the north coast demonstrate the excellence of its beaches. We have the hop-on hop-off bus transfer to the beaches and surrounding places. For lovers of nature, the sunset on these beaches is a unique formulation that contrasts with the progressive predominance of green vegetation over the blue of the sea

The year’s first million visitors have arrived in Cuba, as the country looks to welcome five million in 2018, an increase on the order of 6% – Via Granma Cuba

CUBA was hit hard less than six months ago by a hurricane that caused considerable damage to the country’s four principal tourist destinations. It is the only island nation in the world which, by law, U.S. citizens are not allowed to visit as tourists, and figures among the countries which Washington has singled out with travel advisories, recommending that travelers “reconsider” visiting.

Cool Days, Hot Nights: Havana “Parque Metropolitano”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

by Conner Gorry

On a hot summer night a little riverside amphitheater thrums with a thousand voices, the sweaty, cathartic chorus reaching deep into the surrounding woods. While young punks and pretty debutantes perch in giant jacarandas for a bird’s eye view of the onstage party, Cuba’s future IM their friends about what they’re missing. And what they’re missing is historic.

On this and similar incandescent Havana evenings, Cuban musicians have resuscitated one of the giants of 20th-century urbanism in a series of raucous outdoor concerts in enchanting venues like the Parque Almendares Amphitheater and the Jardines de la Tropical.

Today, both are part of Havana’s Gran Parque Metropolitano, a 700-hectare park currently undergoing an ambitious restoration plan that includes retrofitting and reforesting, environmental protection, neighborhood revitalization, and cultural activities like these concerts. Parque Metropolitano–one of the world’s greatest but least known urban parks–was the dream project of French landscape architect and city planner Jean-Claude Nicolas Forestier, best known for the Eiffel Tower’s Champs-de-Mars gardens and the Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona.
