A Havana Must-See: the Newly Renovated Capitolio

The Old Havana district in Cuba’s capital city is a maze of colorful cobblestone alleyways that date back to the 16th century. Still mostly residential, the streets are dotted with neighbors peering over their aging apartment balconies at the bustle below. Street vendors hawk farm fresh mangoes while groups of children play soccer and de facto mechanics work miracles to keep 1950’s American classic cars running without proper replacement parts.

3 Reasons to Hop Aboard a Small Ship Cruise to Cuba

Although the Caribbean hosts millions of cruise visitors each year, Cuba, as cruising destination is relatively new for Americans.
