7 Reasons Why You Need To Book A Trip To Cuba Right Now!

Since Obama restored our relationship with Cuba (seriously Obama, can you come back please?), it has never been easier for Americans to visit this Caribbean country. The big cruise ships are on their way to Cuba, but if you want to experience authentic Cuba, you need to go before it becomes another American tourist destination. Note: you still need to fall under one of the 12 approved reasons to travel to Cuba.

Vintage cars are omnipresent in Cuba, making you feel like you just stepped back in time.

They're singing, they're dancing, and they want you to join them. The only thing more colorful than the Cuban architecture is its people. Their zest for life is palpable.

3. Because Beautiful White-Sand Beaches Are Just 90 Miles Off the Coast of the U.S.

Cuba is home to some of the world's greatest beaches. Think pristine white-sand, palm trees blowing in the wind, and no tourists.

4. Cuban Cigars: Need I Say More?

Go into an actual Cuban cigar shop and don't buy the cigars on the street. The cigars on the street are often imitations and not the real thing.

5. There's No Uber...and We Love It

Hail a taxi and share a kiss in a vintage ride like you're a teenager in the 60's.

6. Disconnect From the World, Reconnect with Each Other

Wifi is basically non-existent in Cuba. A little digital detox will you do good. Disconnect from the world and reconnect with your loved ones (or a great book) without having to worry about emails from your boss!

7. The Vibrant Colors

Cuba's colonial architecture is beyond colorful. Whether you're admiring pink and purple classic cars driving down the Malecón or getting lost on the colorful corridors of Havana, everything seems brighter in Cuba.
