Here are the top 5 reasons I am going to discuss as to why you should travel solo to Cuba.
1. Very Safe
2. Create connections
3. Eat authentic food & drinks
4. Live culture full of music and dance
5. Close attractions and beautiful landscapes
Now, listing these reasons wouldn’t mean anything if I didn’t give you my own personal experience and the impact it has had on me. If you’re interested in taking a virtual tour of Cuba through my own lens, then please continue to read.
Traveling to Cuba has been by far one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, not just because of the authentic food and diverse culture, but because of the many connections I made. Trekking through Cuba definitely had its moments, but nothing beats the freedom and flexibility one has when traveling on their own.
The second day after settling into my Airbnb and grabbing some dinner, I headed to Castillo de San Salvador. On my way I asked a local for directions, but little did I know that I would make a lifelong friendship. I honestly felt like I was destined to meet Andy, who throughout my trip gave me the best guided tours. He led the way to Castillo de San Salvador, among many other places.
