Havana can hold anybody captive of its mystical charm. Havana lights up the fantasies. Without a doubt there is some hidden magic here, what else could keep the locals motivated to soak up the potholes in their jalopies, stand together against global isolation, and laugh it out with peers despite of severe miseries. Cuban capital is no less than a hypnotizer, but you will need to break out of it, to experience the nearby fascinations of Cuba.

Just 30 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the Centro Habana neighborhood, is a Caribbean beach paradise, which is often talked about with great reverence in travel books.

The ethereal 50km long coast swayed with coconut palms is called as Playas del Este by the locals. There are numerous exotic beaches here, but Santa Maria is a standout among those with differently hued powdery white sands. Head to the buzzing beach town of Guanabo to get acquainted with the locals while the spread of sand across the Boca Ciega is the paradise for maverick and rebel LGBT’s.
