Things to do in Cuba: Stay in a casa particular, Visit Viejo Havana and the malecon as it starts to get dusk. Casa de la musica in Havana and Trinidad, Scuba Diving off Isla De La Juventud, feel the revolutionary struggle around the suburbs of Santiago de Cuba. Visit a cigar factory in havana. Visit mogotes in Vinales. Enjoy the lack of commercial advertising and that Cuba makes do with recycling in real terms and that the life of an item is probably 3 times that of the western world where we throw things away so quickly.

Love it or hate it, Cuba has a unique past, and will have an amazing future, a jewel of resources sitting right under the power that is the USA. Raul has just assumed power and it will be interesting to see how he will try and shape her.
