People, food and culture
Cuba is well known for handmade cigars, considered to be the world’s finest. After all, hand rolling nearly 3 million cigars annually is no easy feat! Traditional Cuban cuisine is influenced by the cuisine of the native Taino people as well as the Spanish, African, and Caribbean cuisines. Pork is the chosen meat for a traditional feast and usually served with rice and beans. Plantains and Tostones are other Cuban staples stuffed with sweet or savoury fillings that are delicious accompaniments. Another basic yet commonly devoured dish is the Cuban sandwich. Made with roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard pressed on crispy Cuban bread, this sandwich is a must-try! With food, can drinks be far behind ? The perfect end to a mouth-watering Cuban meal is Cuban coffee, a perfect blend of sweet and strong guaranteed to give you a sugar-rush! Cuba also takes great pride in its rum production, with the country’s top brand Havana Club used to prepare all kinds of exotic drinks and cocktails. If you can find a bottle of Santiago 11yrs grab it; its as vaulable as gold!
A living museum - The only cars that Cuban citizens can own legally are cars created and bought before 1959. After this year, the Cuban government seized all of the cars, and owns them all to this day. This explains the colorful vintage cars that are so prominent to this country!
One reason you should go here
Cuba is a place frozen in time...one of the last remnants of socialism untouched by first-world consumerism. See it before it gets “spoiled”...
