American blog captures the splendour of Cuban beaches

Posted: 03-Mar-16 15:44

Beach Bar Bums, a blog specialising on beach bars around the world, recently published a post with ten images of Cuba's crystalline waters, white sands and coconut palms. Throughout the article the blog encourages American travellers (and especially beach lovers) to go to the island now, whilst also warning them about the limitations for holders of US passports.

American blog captures the splendour of Cuban beaches

To be a journalist could prove a great gain for American citizens wishing to visit Cuba before a major change of its social, economic and political situation occurs; suggests travel and lifestyle blog "Beach Bar Bums" after posting 10 scenic photos of the island's beaches.

While they prompt travellers to go and have a wonderfully sunny and tropical time in the Caribbean country, they also explain that this kind of expedition is only possible for Americans if they can meet the criteria for travelling under 12 specific categories determined by the U.S. government.

The bloggers say they could now easily take advantage of their position as journalists to go and explore Cuba's beautiful beaches (and its bars) and they encourage other bloggers to do the same.

Nevertheless, they warn readers in the article about the fact that:

“If you think, however, that you’re going to just be able to jump online, book a flight through Expedia and next thing you know you’re drinking mojitos on Varadero Beach well, you’d be a little off.”

Commercial flights between the U.S. and the island (which had been suspended for over 50 years) are expected to resume in the summer. Authorities from both countries signed a deal in Havana to end a long period of air travel between the two countries that was only limited to charter flights. In their article Beach Bar Bums explains:

“Until then, here are ten photos to hold you over until your favourite airline starts advertising fares to Cuba on Expedia. Or you can finally start that blog you’ve always been talking about.”

The bloggers have observed that many Americans are strongly considering Cuba when they plan their next big thing in travel. A radical change in Cuba has been predicted by experts and the media after the process of restoration of normal relations between the United States and the Cuban governments started on December 2014.
