The tumbaos rhythm at every street corner, local houses with rainbow colours, cars looking like they have come out of a museum, energy… mesmerizing! A desire of Rumba and Son or the delicately perfumed rum, salsero eager for dance beat or fauna and flora lovers… Become intoxicated by the rhythm and jewels of Cuba — « The Pearl of the Caribbean » — and share time with the Cuban people. Heirs to a rich and dense history and culture, the inhabitants will allow you experience the traditions that punctuate their daily life, with their characteristic spontaneity and joie de vivre. A pleasure for the senses and for the mind !
