Cuba the emerald, pearl of the Caribbean?

Is Cuba stuck in time or the time has forgotten Cuba?

Coming to Cuba is like a pilgrimage to our ancestors’ age. It is a sweet travel  far from our daily references.

Although it is part of their identity for the rest of the world, no doubt that Cubans would rather hear the clock ticking. Ticking faster to catch up on the lost time, to catch up on the rest of the world.

But we wish that, in the race for a better quality of life, they do not sacrifice what they have best in themselves and lose sight of who they are.

Their culture and their sense of hospitality, for example, that makes you genuinely welcome. This healthy tourism scattered over with its anachronisms. Simple but pleasant. In contrast with Varadero, remains of a bygone age when Cuba was a playground. Because this country has much to offer and this could be their ticket to a better life.

Habana, city whose name sounds like the title of a Salsa, reflects well the spirit of the country. The Malecon, symbol of the local culture after sunsets, where people meet, dance, play music, eat and drink. Just enjoy simple things.

Because Habana is a jewel. Today you need a lot of imagination to see through this but, architecturally, Habana is a treasure. A treasure that is, bit by bit, fading away. That we are all losing.

Cuba is famous for its white sand and palm trees beaches. But Cuba is more than that.

One can only wonder what will the future make of this beautiful island.
