90 miles to Cuba. How to get there?

Once the wheels of our American Airlines charter plane screeched on the runway, signaling that we had landed on Cuban soil, a roar of applause started. Nothing surprising so far, we Romanians do the same once we land to safety. The difference was I had just landed in Cuba, on a plane full of Americans, myself included. The only ones applauding were the Cuban Americans, visiting their families. The rest of us still had our noses pegged to the window.

Havana Upgrades for its 500-Year Anniversary

Cuba is gearing up for Havana’s 500-year anniversary with all the color and flair that Havana is famous for. For Cuban Minister of Tourism, Manuel Marrero Cruz, the anniversary is an opportunity to re-launch Havana as a tourist destination. Still relatively new as a player on the world tourism stage, Cuba will follow a well-worn path of cities using events such as the Olympics or the Football World Cup to promote and improve themselves as a tourist attraction.

Clandestina: Homegrown Cuban Talent

Entrepreneurship on the island breathes stronger than ever. After waiting decades, small seeds of change are finally starting to bear fruit and uncertainty has given way to private enterprise. For many Cubans who have dreamed of owning their own business, the time is now. The businesses that have emerged since the initial boom back in 2013 have become solid and strong fixtures; establishing their own identity and market concept along with the undeniable grit that comes along with the Cuban spirit. Such is the case with Clandestina, the first urban clothing brand, homegrown on the island.
