90 miles to Cuba. How to get there?

Once the wheels of our American Airlines charter plane screeched on the runway, signaling that we had landed on Cuban soil, a roar of applause started. Nothing surprising so far, we Romanians do the same once we land to safety. The difference was I had just landed in Cuba, on a plane full of Americans, myself included. The only ones applauding were the Cuban Americans, visiting their families. The rest of us still had our noses pegged to the window.

Havana Upgrades for its 500-Year Anniversary

Cuba is gearing up for Havana’s 500-year anniversary with all the color and flair that Havana is famous for. For Cuban Minister of Tourism, Manuel Marrero Cruz, the anniversary is an opportunity to re-launch Havana as a tourist destination. Still relatively new as a player on the world tourism stage, Cuba will follow a well-worn path of cities using events such as the Olympics or the Football World Cup to promote and improve themselves as a tourist attraction.

Cuba: Prepare to be Spellbound, By Conner Gorry

What’s the best day trip from Havana? Where should we go for vegetarian food/good music/unspoiled nature/an “authentic” experience?  Where can I learn to dance salsa? What’s the best rum (hint: it’s not Havana Club!)?

New Year's in Cuba

New Year's Eve is a celebration just about everywhere in the world. In some countries it’s about spending time with family. In others it’s about being with friends or family at the right place, at the right time for the infamous countdown. In Cuba, the New Year, like everything else, has its own unique flare.

Flights to Cuba: Plentiful, Accessible and Affordable

The mainstream media often climb onto certain narratives that take off as memes for one reason or another and become conventional wisdom, but often the standard narrative does not accurately represent what is really going on. 

For example, much of the recent media coverage about the U.S. Cuba travel market, especially regarding flights, has followed the story line that the market is not as strong as had been expected. However, that misses a great deal of the real story.
