Vacationing in La Havana, Cuba was by far the most humbling and gratifying experience I’ve had this year. I allowed myself to disconnect from home and fully immerse in the flavorful Cuban culture rich of Afro-Caribbean influence. There is a distinct rawness of the city’s architecture that I immediately fell in love with and an easy-going air throughout the city.
Upon arrival, it didn’t take long for my girlfriends and I to mix with the locals, embracing their lively energy that was contagious to say the least. We enjoyed the nightlife in Old Havana, soaked up sun rays at Santa Maria Beach, dined at fabulous Paladares (private-owned restaurants), rode down El Malecón in colorful convertibles all while laughing the days away.
Needless to say, my experience in Cuba greatly surpassed what I dreamt it to be.
