    Havana, Cuba: A Photo Essay

    Havana, Cuba: A Photo Essay

    Photos courtesy of Goats on the Road

    Exploring side-streets while gazing up at crumbling, neoclassical buildings, sitting in a gorgeous plaza while people watching or spending the day at the lovely Playas del Este beach are just a few of the things you can do during the day in Havana, Cuba. Evenings can be spent strolling down the seaside Malecón, listening to live salsa music and dancing the night away!

    This is just a fraction of what this city has to offer. After spending a week in the city, we can now say that it's our new favorite, which is saying a lot. After seeing these photos, we're sure you'll see why we love it so much.
