Cuba is a small but a well-known country. Supposedly. This piece of land usually reemerges as an unexplored territory, not only for the novice but also for the conscious traveler. Perhaps, because of its geography? Its frequent historical ups and downs? A complex transculturation? May be. Its unique political system? Because of a bit of everything?
The presence of Cubans has been confirmed by one hundred twenty nations. Sixty of them have communities of importance. Nevertheless, a trip to Cuba has no substitute to know its culture and understand the Cubans.
Cuba is one of such places where everybody is looking forward to something to happen. This is not only valid for Cuban nationals. Many visitors remain in that expecting state. It’s not weird hearing “It was good coming now… to return later and compare”.
Cuba is safe!
After centuries of social merging and unforeseeable evolution, the Cuba of nowadays exhibits a process that doesn´t end yet. Beyond its rich history, what is really astonishing is how the Cuban people seems to be challenging the End-of-History theories.
In the same vein, though it´s pretty easy to discover traces coming from Spanish, African, Chinese and, in minor proportion, from the Caribbean aborigine cultures, it´s still surprising the cultural adaptation, absorption and fusion skills of the Cubans. It is worth to say their multiple races haven’t been a drawback for their mono ethnicity. One realizes this in arts like music, dancing, plastic arts, architecture, and cinema; in religion; in cuisine; in sports; in their educational system; and, in general, in their way of life. Does their tolerance have to do with this? How about their ego then? Their joy? The fact is foreign travelers have always been welcome, wherever they come from.
An analysis of the peculiarities and rationales of the Cuban system –state organization and economy-, for many, irrational at first glance, would take a lot of space. What to say about the disproportionate influence of this country in the international arena?
Join the above to one of the most beautiful and nicest natural environment and get a unique destination, even for the usual travelers.
Could Cuba be even exotic for the 21th Century?
