Photo of the Day: Cuba's ambassadors

Children are the heart and soul of any country. They provide keen insight into the people, the culture and the place, but more importantly they are a country's gentle ambassadors. Cubans treaure their children in ways that are measurable and noticible. It's one of the truly touching aspects about Cuba. As such, insightCuba will introduce guests to children across the country and in different settings. You may visit them in a school, or during a performance, at a community project, or just on the street.

Photo of the Day: Horse and Buggy

When people talk about how to get around in Cuba, most people mention the classic American cars. Some give a nod to the Russian Lada's or Moskvitch's that still line the streets. My personal favorite mode of transportation still widely available in Cuba is the horse and buggy.  In Old Havana you can ride around in a restored horse and buggy as a tourist for a couple of bucks, but in the rest of Cuba, it’s the real deal.

Photo of the Day: Showing off a classic Chevy in Holguín

A gentleman proudly showcasing his classic blue Chevy outside his home in Holguín. The city is warm, welcoming, filled with Spanish colonial charm, and has just the right balance of culture and easiness, that you feel as though you are one of a few to ever discover this amazing place. American tourists rarely frequent this off-the-beaten path city destination. I walked into a paladar, recommended by my bicycle taxi driver, and sat down for dinner. The waiter asked where I was from. When I told him the US, he was so excited.
