Going to Cuba is like travelling back in time to a place where most things and development has been frozen for several decades.
You will find cultural-historical buildings, Cuban Cigars, Cuba Libre, Salsa rhythms and of cource thousands of old American cars making the cityscape in Havana look like a scene from Godfather II.
