What you'll do
Seeking for alternative lifestyles, we’ll penetrate the backstreets of Havana to discover a whole other city. This is the way to learn about real Cuba, not recorded in the guidebooks, seeing the sights and what hides behind them. Diverse lifestyles exist within Havana’s socialist society. Older cultures like Spanish, African and Chinese culture have created the Cuban people as it is today, with its unique religions, dances, music, traditions and dreams. However, as if that weren’t enough, the constant tug-of-war between US interests in the island and Cuban revolutionary responses have put the islanders’ lives on edge for more than 100 years. Faced with constant challenges, Havana’s residents find the motivation to continue “en la lucha”, reinventing everything to face difficult decades with clever attitudes. Pay attention as we uncover for you 5¢-coffee, street art & tattoo culture, the Cuban-Chinese culture, cheap food and drinks, recent immigrants drawn to the island’s new energy, stories about the Malecon’s nightlife and the Paquete - the Cuban solution to watching your favorite shows and films with no internet. At the end, we will go to a bar where only locals go.
