A journey around Latin America: Cuba #6

0

Home to unrivalled diversity, Latin America is a melting pot of cultures

 

The countries that make up Latin America are as distinct from one another as the region is from other parts of the world. So, what unites them? In addition to geographical proximity and the Spanish language (with the exception of Portuguese in Brazil and French in Haiti), perhaps it’s the culture, the climate, the more relaxed outlook on life than European counterparts. There are a number of familiarities that unite them but, at the same time, many aspects that make them unique thanks to their historical context. This is, ultimately, the charm of Latin America.

With that in mind, we have prepared a broad overview of the “best of all things Latin”, with a particular focus on tourism, culture and gastronomy. With so many countries to choose from and so few pages, it won’t be possible to showcase everything at once, but we promise to profile each one in greater detail in future editions. Below are some of the highlights.

To give priority to our Latin neighbours, we will not include Brazil in this section. But worry not, if you want to find out more about this South American giant just browse any of the other  editions of BBMag – Bossa Brazil Magazine printed or online.

 

Cuba

Cuba is a destination steeped in history and home to stunning scenery. Habana Vieja is a UNESCO heritage site and a hub for Cuban history. If you want to learn more out about the Cuban revolution, led by Fidel Castro, the Museo de la Revolución is the spot.

Now, if beach life is more your thing, get yourself to Cayos, Varadero and Trinidad, where you can sample some of the country’s culinary delights, such as ropa vieja, a Cuban favourite.
