Exploring Cuba in Photos

written by anoushka January 9, 2017
Although before my trip to Cuba I had very little idea of what to expect beyond the pastel-hued nostalgia of Havana, I knew I wanted to see more of the country than just the capital. We ended up planning a loop of Western Cuba, from Havana to beach paradise Varadero, before a whistle-stop tour of Santa Clara, Trinidad and Cienfuegos, some of the other main cities.

This post is pretty picture heavy so I’ll keep the babbling to a minimum, but all in all I’m really glad we took the time to explore past Havana as every city had it’s own unique charms that made them worth a visit. Whilst Havana could be quite overwhelming at times, in terms of the hustle and bustle and unwanted attention, getting out of the capital things tended to be calmer, and we were able to adopt a slower pace of life (involving regular Pina Colada breaks, of course!).
