San Cristóbal paladar stimulates all of the senses, from before you step in its front door, to the cafe cubano that helps digest a scrumptious lunch.

Hurricane Irma: What you Need to Know

After making its way through the Caribbean, Hurricane Irma made landfall on Cuba’s northeastern shores Friday night. It was the first storm of this magnitude to reach the island in 85 years. Sadly, Irma claimed ten Cuban casualties and devastated swaths of sugarcane and agricultural crops.

Urban Agriculture in Cuba

Cuba has developed a reputation as a country frozen in time. With its artfully preserved classic cars roaming every avenue and most of its buildings dating back to at least the 1950’s, it’s easy to see why.

The island’s urban agriculture movement is a testament to Cuban ingenuity.
