Cuba is an alluring country filled with song, dance, rum, and the applied principles of a German economist by the name of Karl Marx. Though Americans will have somewhat of a difficult time reaching Cuba, this should not keep them from doing so, because once you set foot in this picturesque country, there’s no looking back. The home of Che Guevara is still electric with the energy of revolt, and whether the principles he fought for are your cup of tea or not, the contrast between Marxist governance and fiery Latin dance is a striking one really worth the trip. So close it practically touches the U.S., Cuba could not be more different. But sometimes, different can be good, if only for the duration of a holiday, and small but feisty Cuba will surely show you a good time, even without Coca-Cola.
