Cuba Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Cuba
Hello and welcome to our Cuba travel blog. You will find all our Cuba blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Cuba travel blog because you are considering a visit to the Caribbean, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Cuba. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Cuba.
We’ve only visited Cuba once, on a fantastic three-week backpacking trip, but that was nowhere near enough time and we’re keen to return to Cuba at some point in the not to distant future.
Our Cuba blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
