Havana, Cuba

The Cuban capital of Havana was historically one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Caribbean prior to the Communist revolution.

Vintage cars which have been used since the 1960’s continue to roam the streets, while many of the city’s buildings have seen little to no change. The locals emit a sense of vibrant passion, which really shows itself in the evenings in the form of music and Salsa dancing.
