Cuba is an amazing place to be – I remember visiting Cuba last year just after I drove across the US in a car hired from cheap car rental usa, and thought there is nothing better left to see. However, I saw a country full of extremes – both beautiful and darkened by misery, both developed and supressed by communism. Although my feelings for Cuba were quite contraversial, my two-weeks stay there was almost as amazing as the most beautiful places I have been to.
The first thing to mention is the national kitchen in Cuba – I must admit almost every night I overate – the delicious meals the locals have to offer are quite satisfactory and extremely tasty. The breads and the spicy souces would make you even happier because hardly is there a more distinctvie kitchen with so many varieties of the both. So just spending time in the restaurants made me quite amazed – the Cubian food was truely one of the best I had the chance to taste.
Another thing that fascinated me was the lifestyle – no matter poor or rich, the Cubians are really cheered people. The streets of Havana are always loud and crowded – people would be dancing on the street, musicians would play live just for enterteinment, jazz music would come from almost every open window, small children would run after you offering you their services to take you to the best place for the night. You would be astonished when you visit a salsa club, and you would see the vivid energy of these people, their smiles are almost as addictive as their food and no matter how late, they will always find the way to have fun.
So apart from the usual things like shopping and beaches, Cuba can offer spectacular nightlife and amazing food that every tourist would be satisfied with.
