What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Visiting beaches out of town, eating in beautiful restaurants with pretty views, walking around old town early in the morning, or along the malecon. - Jan 2, 2016
Old Havana is beautiful. I have enjoyed visiting artists and art galleries. There are lovely, clean beaches 30 minutes from the city. It's a great place to learn something new - language, painting, music, tennis, scuba diving, etc. because it's easy and inexpensive to hire a teacher/guide. - May 4, 2014
World class cigars at comparably cheap prices. Very little traffic. US$10 in-home massage, US$20 salsa lessons. High rate of spousal employment. Locals are incredibly warm and welcoming despite relations between U.S. and Cuba. - Aug 14, 2013
