Havana is hands down one of my top three list of favourite cities I’ve ever visited.
Cuba was on my travel bucket list for ages, so I was beside myself with excitement when my girlfriends and I chose the island for our girls’ trip.
The historical and well-documented resilience of its people, the David to the Goliath that is America, the tiny island valiantly stood up the capitalist nation is the stuff of legends.
Direct flights from Port of Spain to Havana have been operational for over a year and I’d tell anyone who asks to go NOW. Part of the island’s charm is how little it’s been influenced by global trends, but that’s quickly changing since travel there is on the rise.
I love to plan trips but I’ll admit that this was the most challenging trip I’ve planned. While certain information, like things to do and accommodation, is easy to find, I found myself a bit frustrated trying to find resources that provided information specifically for Trinbagonian travel.
I wrote The Mini Trini Guide to Cuba because I want you to have all the necessary information you need to plan right at your fingertips.
