Havana is a wonderful city full of energy and nostalgic beauty, but If you just confine yourself to the city you will miss out on tobacco fields, lush forests, pristine beaches, waterfalls, colonial towns and a night club in a cave. When visiting Cuba one must take a journey outside Havana and discover what else the Island has to offer, you won’t regret it.
