A Letter for the UNESCO Seeker

So, you’re the kind of person who has a travel list. You dream of seeing every attraction that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) deems worthy. You make it a point to visit well-known architectural structures like the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge, or the Great Wall of China and you enjoy visiting areas that are best known for their diverse wildlife, like the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. Heck, maybe you think traveling to Tajikistan to see the ancient settlement of Sarazm is worth the sense of elation and accomplishment you feel when you take the tip of your pen and scratch another site off you’re well-wrinkled UNESCO check-list that you keep neatly folded in your pocket.

The Spirit of a City, Havana’s Malecón

With each passing day, insightCuba continues to eagerly anticipate the arrival of our People-to-People Travel License from the U.S. Treasury Department. Until the big day arrives, we thought it would be a great idea to resume writing about Cuba, today’s topic: the Malecón. First, we'll set the right tone by listening to these musicians and checking out the scenery.

New Guidelines Open the Door

Most Americans only dream about traveling to Cuba. Well, that dream is about to come true. Cuba is generally known by U.S. citizens for its tumultuous history, Fidel Castro, cigars, the Buena Vista Social Club, and classic cars. However, very few people have had the opportunity to learn about Cuba firsthand by traveling there and meeting the people who call it home.

Yank Tanks

When you think about traveling to Cuba, there are few more iconic or easily recognizable symbols of the island than the Yank Tank. Has anyone wondered just why there are so many classic American cars in Cuba? Or even more curious – how on earth they are still in one piece!? To investigate this mystery, insightCuba flew me to Havana and gave me the keys to a ‘57 Chevy. My mission was to drive throughout Cuba in search of answers. Then I woke up and did some research.

Spotlight on Cuban Culture: Exploring Santería

InsightCuba participants may have the opportunity to visit areas like the spiritual city of Guanabacoa located just outside of Havana, or the sizzling cultural city of Santiago de Cuba. While there, you are likely to experience an aspect of Cuban culture that is frequently seen but rarely understood by travelers. During one of our people-to-people programs, you may even get to meet a Santería practioner face-to-face. I hope this short introduction to the Santería faith will give you something to talk about.
