Cuba is a Caribbean island nation under communist rule. It has sugar-white beaches and is dotted with tobacco fields, which play a part in the production of the country's legendary cigars. Havana, its largest city and capital, is lined with pastel houses, 1950s-era cars and Spanish-colonial architecture in the 16th-century core, Old Havana. Salsa music plays in the dance clubs and cabaret shows are performed at the famed Tropicana.

I had the opportunity visit Cuba in May 2016 and again in February 2018 where I spent time in Havana,Trinidad, Santiago, Vinales Valley, Pinar Del Rio among other places. I found the Cuban people very friendly, the food- excellent.
