You guys know (‘cause I won’t shut up about that crap. Or, really, anything. Talk talk talk blahblahblah) that G and I had a chance to take a dream trip to Cuba a coupla years ago and even though we had to go on a licensed group tour—as will all of you regular tourist plebes for the immediate future—there are a number of tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip to the Pearl of the Antilles. Pencils ready?
But all that said, the most important tip I can offer you is: just go. Pinch your pennies, read up, and go go go to Cuba…I promise your perspective will be permanently, and wonderfully, altered….
