Cuba, the largest island in the Caribbean and only 90 miles south of Key West Florida, is known for the vibrancy of her people and the local culture, salsa dancing, unspoiled beaches, and a strong art and music scene.
Cuba is now experiencing a warming of relations with the United States, including the recently re-opened US Embassy in Havana, symbolizing the ever-closer return of normalized relations and trade between these once-friendly nations. Although it has been open to tourism from around the world for many years, such as the Canadians and Europeans who visit Cuba, the country is still underdeveloped by most standards. For many travelers, that is part of the appeal and Cuba remains a beautiful place in transition.
