An afternoon in Cienfuegos

After visiting the quaint little colonial town of Trinidad, we were all excited to get back to Havana for one more night of fun exploring Cuba’s capital.  Little did we expect to be bowled over by the bustling city of Cienfuegos.  In contrast to Trinidad’s picturesque cobblestone streets and vibrantly colored houses, Cienfuegos provided a completely different look into Cuba that, despite being quite far from the capital, felt incredibly cosmopolitan.  The roads leading up to the Jose Marti plaza were lively arteries filled with st

Bus-ride Conversations

Over the course of our eight days in Cuba, the moments that stood out the most weren’t necessarily what you might expect.  While it was exciting to snap photos to capture the iconic profile of Che Guevara in the Revolution Square and have a mojito on the outdoor terrace of the Hotel Nacional overlooking the waves crashing into the Malecon, in fact my most memorable moments occurred in the confines of our motor coach.

My Adventure to Cuba: Part 1

My toes touched the tarmac and there it was, right in front of me – history. I’ll never forget my first impression of Cuba; it was of Tom, the Director of insightCuba, in the most warming of embraces with his Cuban counterpart. What struck me about this embrace was that it felt as though it was being shared amongst brothers, the closest of brothers, who for whatever reason, had been separated for years, decades even, without a phone call or email. For me, during that one single moment in time, I finally understood his genuine love for Cuba and its people.

Daydreaming of Cuba

Close your eyes and think of a country that you long to visit. I bet what comes to mind is a mix of past travel experiences, current interests, and bits of information acquired over time.

As one could imagine, a great benefit of working at insightCuba, is getting to travel to Cuba to experience the programs firsthand.

With Only the Ocean Between Us

Growing up in Key West and knowing that you can’t just climb aboard a neighbors’ boat to go explore Cuba, as we explored the various other islands that dot the Atlantic, is an odd feeling. Knowing that you are closer to an island that you can’t visit than the continental U.S. always made me feel isolated, like there was a twin somewhere in the distance that I’d never met and would never get the chance to. Somewhere out there beyond the waves were the people whose customs my island had stolen over the years.
