What I like about Cuba is that it has many sides. The good, the bad and the ugly. The good? Combine low-cost living, perfect winter weather and more than 300 beautiful beaches surrounded by turquoise seas and you know why people would like to live there (and at least visit the place!) The bad? For individual US tourists it may be hard to visit the place once again... Also, although violent crime is very uncommon, petty crime is quite common and at times harder to avoid. The ugly? Talk China Town. Perhaps the only China Town in the world without China-linked inhabitants. Today part two of Cuba's photo series!

For me, highlights of Cuba includes the Spanish colonial towns of Havana (art deco architecture and vintage American cars are still here, yes!) and Trinidad, as well as the beautiful landscapes of the Viñales Valley. Crime is relatively low compared to countries of similar development:
“There is almost no gun crime, violent robbery, organised gang culture, teenage delinquency, drugs or dangerous no-go zones.” If a local comes at you holding a machete, he’s probably about to split open a coconut for you." - Lonely Planet.
Aaaaah those beaches! Cuba features everything from vast stretches of golden sand to hidden tropical bays. Go find out yourself!
