Few places put a skip in your step (or fire in your belly) like Cuba. It might sound like a cliché, but Cuba really is a feast for all the senses, from its pulsating, soul-awakening music, to the rolling rhythms of the crystalline Caribbean Sea. The thrum and flitter of bedazzling hummingbirds will set your soul on fire as much as the country’s unique history that spans indigenous Taíno culture, Spanish colonialism, Castro’s twentieth-century Communism and beyond.
