Ever since I could remember, travel became a key part of my life. Being born in Cuba, I lived abroad during my childhood due to my father's job. My family and I spent three years in Barcelona and five years in London. These cities, which I still hold dear to my heart, were my home for a long time and shaped me in many ways; although, I must confess my essence always remained fundamentally Cuban.
In all that time living abroad, we always travelled back to Cuba during the school summer holidays and it was always fun for me to explore my homeland and keep in touch with my roots. The rest of my teenage years and adult life, I've lived in this culturally-rich, diverse and enchanting island, which I have developed a passion for.
From its colonial cities and upbeat nightclubs to the untouched natural beauty of its countryside, the amazing beaches and the warmth of its people, Cuba captivates everyone who cares to unveil its wonders. As I write about my exotic trips, fun-packed nights and enriching journeys, you can see Cuba from an insider's viewpoint.
Riding "almendrones" (50's cars), shaking my hips to salsa music, sipping refreshing mojitos and enduring the heat of the Caribbean are part of my day-to-day life. As a native of Cuba's buzzing capital, Havana, I can tell you about the latest events taking place in the island, recommend unique off-the-beaten track routes to discover and suggest the best dining venues and chill-out spots from my perspective.
