The state of U.S. - Cuban relations

July 20th marked the anniversary of a historic day for both Cuba and the United States; one year ago, the former Cold War adversaries reopened embassies and officially restored diplomatic relations for the first time in over half a century. Huge crowds swarmed Cuba’s embassy in Washington, DC (and the U.S. embassy in Havana a month later) as the countries’ leaders took part in the flag raising ceremony.

“Consuelo and Madeline were among the most exceptional guides I have ever had! They, apart from the beauty and charm of Cuba, made the trip more worthwhile.”

Explore Cojimar: Little Village With a Big Reach

About a half an hour’s drive from Havana sits the little fishing village of Cojimar. Inseparable from the lore and legends of Ernest Hemingway, the town on the Bay of Cojimar still echoes with the author’s influence.

A bust of the writer stands at the town’s Hemingway Memorial, and an annual fishing tournament honors his memory. Visitors can dine on seafood at La Terraza, as Hemingway did when he lived in Cuba from 1939 to 1960.
