After reading this very interesting article (it’s not as negative as it sounds and is well worth a read!), I realized that now, more than ever, really is the time to get to Cuba!
The article talks about the nostalgic, but not always realistic, remembrances of the Cuba of “then”; the positive and hopeful changes seen in the Cuba of “now”; and the probably, and not always positive, imagined Cuba of “later”, that is post-influx of American tourists and their dollars.
There are a variety of ways to visit Cuba sooner rather than later. Fly on a scheduled airline or charter flight and book accommodation in the lively and passionate capital of the country, Havana. On a sun package that includes charter airfare and hotel accommodation, usually at one of the variety of popular tourist beach locations, and maybe a couple of local tours thrown in. On an escorted, small group tour that gets you away from the touristy beach areas into the countryside. Or on a cruise that sails around the island, stopping at a number of diverse and interesting ports. All of these options are great for the variety of people that want to visit Cuba. And don’t worry, it really isn’t too late!
