Cuba is an amazing and exotic country – Set Sail For Cuba
Cuba is an amazing and exotic country that offers much for travelers to see and do. Unfortunately, if you’re an American you can’t experience any of it. For the rest of the world, however, Cuba is an open and inviting country with miles of sandy beaches, warm waters, great food and welcoming locals.
And getting there is cheap and easy. If you were from the states, you would have to fly to a coastal Mexican city, find a boat to the country, and convince a Cuban customs official to exchange not stamping your passport in for a few hundred dollars. None of which do we recommend – even if it is easily done. I you’re from another country, getting to Cuba is easily reached the same way without the need for bribes.
But flying cheaply to Mexico and taking a boat, though a great adventure, isn’t always doable for travelers with limited time. Fortunately for them, direct flights to Cuba are cheaper than flights to just about any other Caribbean country.
Once you land in the capital, grab a taxi to any of the hacienda’s or upscale hotels in downtown. The rent on a room in Cuba is very cheap and plenty of hotels that were once American owned resorts cater to the budget traveler who still wants a bit of luxury.
