Baseball in Cuba – It’s a Home Run!

There are many religions practiced in Cuba, but the universal religion is baseball. Baseball and Cuba have an inseparable history. The the game arrived on the island in the 1860’s when returning students brought it home from the United States, and it became an instant hit (no pun intended). On our recent visit to this fascinating country we had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the country’s baseball culture.



New Regulations On Travel To Cuba Usher A New Era On U.S. Travel

Many people have been asking what the U.S./Cuba regulations announced on Wednesday, November 8th mean for them. The regulations are complex and the news reports have been incomplete and often misleading, so we wanted to set the record straight. Please read on below: 



El Morro: Havana's Richest Historical Landmark

El Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro or simply “El Morro” for short, is a quintessential Havana landmark. “El Morro” is frequently used to refer to not just this colonial-era Spanish castle, but a two-part defensive complex called the Morro-Cabaña Military Historic Park, which also includes the San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress.



Insight Paladares: Dining Like a star at San Cristóbal

San Cristóbal paladar stimulates all of the senses, from before you step in its front door, to the cafe cubano that helps digest a scrumptious lunch. A trip there from the Capitolio takes you westward along the narrow streets of the Centro Habana neighborhood, full of corner coffee spots, kids on bikes, sellers pushing carts full of avocadoes and guavas, and women standing in doorways fanning themselves.



Hurricane Irma: What you Need to Know

After making its way through the Caribbean, Hurricane Irma made landfall on Cuba’s northeastern shores Friday night. It was the first storm of this magnitude to reach the island in 85 years. Sadly, Irma claimed ten Cuban casualties and devastated swaths of sugarcane and agricultural crops. 

Thankfully, however, the eye of the storm veered north before reaching Havana, saving Cuba’s capital city and western provinces from the destruction that north-central coastal resort towns sustained.



Urban Agriculture in Cuba: A Testament to Cuban Ingenuity

Cuba has developed a reputation as a country frozen in time. With its artfully preserved classic cars roaming every avenue and most of its buildings dating back to at least the 1950’s, it’s easy to see why. What many don’t realize, however, is that Cuba’s anachronisms have led to countless innovations. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all! The island’s urban agriculture movement is a testament to Cuban ingenuity.
