Follow Michaela Guzy, Founder of OhThePeopleYouMeet, as she heads to Cuba because what’s more exciting than unchartered territory? While Fidel Castro halted development in the 1960’s, he simultaneously preserved iconic hotels and colonial towns just now being restored. The time warp may soon be over with a pending announcement by President Obama and Raul Castro to restore diplomatic ties between the US and Cuba.

Exploring the streets of Cuba, you will find exuberant, lively people and music pouring from every corner. Expect a cash culture, simple accommodations and extremely friends locals and expats. And don’t forget your toilet paper and hand wipes!

While travel for tourism is still prohibited, charter flights from Miami, New York and New Orleans are available if fitting into the 12 approved travel categories. If you fit within one of them or have specific travel logistics questions, contact WOWCuba. Michaela’s Map: Intro to Cuba is just part one in our three part series. For more important travel information, watch for more coming soon!
