The colorful 1950s cars found dutifully zipping along the streets of Cuba may just be the perfect metaphor for a country that by every outward appearance, seems to be fixed in time.
What the classic cars, the bustling plazas, and crumbling architectural gems all have in common is their powerful link to a proud, yet hard-lived history. As such, the Cuban people have a shared investment in their community which brings untold opportunities for visitors looking for a sustainable travel experience.
A welcoming people, Cubans enjoy the bonds formed with the outside world as it not only benefits their livelihoods but their surroundings as well. Whether it’s caring for local wildlife, renovating an Art Deco or Art Nouveau treasure, or helping to protect the natural environment, Cuba offers a wealth of experiences.
