Five good reasons to visit Cuba in 2020
Culture, music, beaches and much more!
The first reason I recommend you spare some time to visit this fantastic Caribbean island could be the momentum that this country has gathered over the course of centuries of cultural mixing of European, African, Arab, even Chinese heritages among other influences. This is one of the things that makes it absolutely unique. Its manifests itself for instance when you listen to one of the many music genres for which Cuba is known around the world, be it Rumba, Songo, Punto Cubano and many others that have earned this country the nickname of “The Musical Island”.
The other arts have also been touched with the signature of Cuban authenticity that constantly draws national and international attention, simply put there is art wherever you look, it is so easy to get surprised on a daily basis as art may pop up in places where you least expect it. Cuban culture constantly amazes, excites and provokes the audience whether it be its films, theatre, plastic arts, etc. There is always this sort of uncontained creativity, originality and naughtiness that have cast a spell on not a few international visitors that have vowed to permanently settle here.
If paradisiac beaches are your thing then you might have a hard time deciding where to go because Cuba is full of them. From east to west whether it’s in Guardalavaca, Varadero or Santa Lucía you’ll be entering a portal straight to celestial untouched waters, fine white sand beaches and lush natural surroundings.
Multi-destination travel is also a good way to get around, you could combine nature, beach, city and cultural tourism in one of the many possible combinations you could draw depending on your interests. You could start say in Havana, then bathe in Varadero and carry onto Trinidad just to name one circuit.
