With or without official restrictions – a lot fewer after the large Caribbean island and the U.S. renewed diplomatic relations – visiting is easy. And once you do, the options of wild adventures seem endless – cave and scuba diving, rock climbing, hiking (epic peaks and steep climbs in Cuba!), and dancing in the famous Havana salsa clubs. Locals say that to see the “soul” of Cuba you have to visit the “Oriente,” which is the region east of Camagüey. You’ll see many historic sites, propaganda billboards and political thirsts. Some of the country’s most beautiful beaches are there as well.
