Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began.
At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world.
If you ask me how it looks, I would say its like if Paris and Madrid had a love child which they gave up for adoption and shipped to the Caribbean. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and overall had a wonderful time with my in-laws. I arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back. Here’s a short gallery of what’s to come in the next few days.

Great Jorge! I hope one day soon to visit Cuba. My parents honeymooned there!
Thanks, that must have been one incredible honeymoon, don’t tell me your almost cuban by 9 months 🙂 lol.
Fantastic images! Food and drink for the x100s couldn’t be better!
Thanks Ian, lots of rice and beans for the X in Cuba , that’s for sure.
It’s always nice to see street scenes from Cuba!
My favorite place. Havana especially. I was there numerous times for work or pleasure. Keep thinking of all the nice people, great music, simple yet tasty food, great beer and sun…
If you ever need a company for “photo expedition” send me a note. I’ll be there in no time…
Cheers from the frozen North.
Cuba was an intense experience I hope to repeat soon. Great people, great food, great music as you mentioned were just some of the highlights. Its certainly a city that leaves an indelible impression in one’s mind. Photo expedition you betcha!
