The best place to start your queer Cuba explorations is in the country’s vibrant capital city of Havana. Locked in 60 years of isolation and embargo, Cuba offers a place like no other in the world – with authentic historic charm and amazingly friendly people.
There are so many things to see in this cultural metropolis – take a stroll along the Malecon, or visit Vidado and the embassy neighborhoods of this vibrant and exciting city. Check out Revolution Square and the city’s famous Cathedral.
But Cuba is so much more than just Havana. Trinidad is a UNESCO World Heritage City with more than 500 years of continuous occupation and its encounters with the Spanish, Pirates, Americans and then Castro. The town square is one of the most beautiful in the country and the famous “Steps” will introduce you to the wonderful Cuban music that you will experience everywhere in the country.
Check out the beach here – Trinidad’s Caribbean sands are perfect for sunbathing or snorkeling.
Outside the cities, you can take a tour of a sugar mill, one of the island’s main crops.
Another option? The Artist Colony of Cienfuegos. on the scenic Southern coast of Cuba, beautiful Cienfuegos is Cuba’s most cultural city… full of artists, singers and some of the nation’s most important creative people. Check out all the famous sights including the largest “Prado” boulevard in Cuba, the National Theater and the Street of Culture.
The United States and Cuba share an long and, at times, contentious history, and the last 60 years of embargo have forced its people to adapt in amazing and creative ways. Come to Cuba, and enjoy a vacation destination unlike any other.
