Nick and Dariece recommend to enjoy these five quintessential experiences in Cuba

The island nation of Cuba has only recently opened up its borders to visitors from the USA and it has been growing in popularity as a tourist destination. It comes as no surprise that this island offers many amazing experiences that are considered to be quintessential. Nick and Dariece, the couple behind the nomadic travel blog Goats on the Road, have put together a list of five important Cuban experiences.

  1. Driving Down the Malecon in an Old Car

    Retro 1950s vehicles are iconic symbols of Havana, so why not cruise down the seaside promenade and enjoy the sights?

  2. Dancing to Salsa Music

    Salsa is a huge part of the culture of Cuba and dancing the night away to salsa tunes is a quintessential experience on the island. Cubans are known for their dance moves, so let a local teach you how to move to the music.

  3. Visiting a Cigar Factory

    One of the most famous exports of this country is Cuban cigars, as they are some of the highest quality cigars in the world. Visiting a tobacco plantation while you are in Cuba is a must-do experience.

  4. Staying in a Local Homestay

    In Cuba you can stay with a local family in a "casa particular" (homestay) and experience what life is like for the people who live here. There are registered homes all over the country and they are considered the best accommodation option in Cuba. You will have your own private room and often your own living area and kitchen, but the owners will also live on the property so that you can spend time with them and learn more about Cuban life.

  5. Learn About the History

    Cuba is a nation with a complex and conflict-ridden history and there are still hardships that the local people face to this day. During your visit it is important to learn about the history of Cuba by visiting museums and historic sites and talking to the local people who have lived it, so that you can have a better understanding of this nation's past.

These are five of the most quintessential experiences to have during a visit to beautiful Cuba according to Nick and Dariece... but do you have your own?
