Cuba is a wonderful country, filled with excitement and adventure. At the same time, its culture and economics is considerably different from what most western tourists are accustomed to. Visiting Cuba or living in Havana can present some challenges and there is a steep learning curve when trying to assimilate into the local scene.
We can use this forum as a judgment free area to discuss Cuba related issues with an emphasis on exploring and living in Cuba as a local, rather than just a casual tourist. Authentic travel in Cuba can be a rewarding and life changing experience and our goal here is to make it accessible to everybody.
