Havana allows you to not only step back in time but step into a time where we live in the moment. Besides the colourful classic cars which are the obvious indicator of the time warp. It’s a place where music is live on the streets and not heard through an iPod. Chatting with a neighbour means actually walking over and knocking on their door or picking up a pay phone and there is a palpable sense of community. Havana really is a city like no other.
I absolutely loved Havana and would return in a heartbeat now knowing what to expect and that there is nothing to worry about. But hindsight is 20/20. Before I left I did a myriad of research, quizzed anybody that mentioned that they had been there, and tried to plan and be prepared for any eventuality. Based on my experiences I have condensed all the questions I had before travelling to Havana for the first time as well as what I discovered through the hours of research that turned out to be immensely helpful.
