Tips for Cuba’s new world travelers

Our friends at Guamá have some travel tips (15 in total) for Cuba's new world travelers. Here are a few I translated for your reading enjoyment:

5- The packets of mayonnaise, sugar, salt, and mustard that you find in the airport restaurants are for limited consumption and exclusively at those locations. Don't steal them indiscriminately because you are likely to get embarrassed by security.

 

 

12- There are other music genres. Learn about them, enjoy them, and accept new cultures. Timba and reggaeton are not all that popular as you will discover. That is not a reason to get depressed: learn new things, open your mind. And while your mind is open, the best ice cream is not the one from Coppelia.

 

 

15- Cuba is not all that important. Don't feel bad if absolutely no one at your destination cares about Cuba and what Cubans go through there. The world is a big place and in reality, they could not care less about us.
