Perspective | Havana Channel

Cuba has become the ‘hot’ destination to travel to before it ‘changes.’ The interesting thing is that Cuba has already been changing from the preconceived notion of what most people around the world think of it. It’s not exactly the same Communist Cuba we heard about. Their economy is much more complicated than that. There is a spirited new generation that has emerged that wants more for their lives and are willing to work for it, even with all the obstacles and disadvantages they have in living in an oppressed country. They just want the opportunity, and now that it has been made legal, entrepreneurs have sprouted small businesses across Havana. Going to Cuba is an experience, and people should temper their expectations and not forget it’s an island with 3 million people currently welcoming 2 million visitors a year. And above all, we hope people will see Cuba with more than their eyes, but with their hearts as well.
