As a North American, I had always believed of Cuba as being a resort destination. This is where those on their holidays would spend a week at an all-inclusive beach resort, while laying on pristine sand as well as sipping endless mojitos. However, after returning from a 3.5 week backpacking trip to the largest island in the Caribbean, we now understand what it has to offer independent travellers: Everything.

Cuba is a mix of African, Latin as well as Caribbean cultures, all of which are interesting as well as all of which offer lively music, spicy dancing as well as lovely people. The landscapes variety from mountains to jungle to beaches, while the design in the cities feels lost in time. The streets of the colonial towns are bustling, while the rural countryside seems to stand still. The history of this nation is fascinating, while the struggles that the people deal with are extremely real. Although the sights may be incredible, satisfying the locals as well as hearing their stories will be a highlight of any type of trip to Cuba.

Our camera was overworked during our trip – we actually needed to remove off our memory cards a couple of times! Check out these 31 unique pictures which show an fascinating side to this photogenic country.

Με τους περιορισμούς ταξιδιού για την χαλάρωση των Αμερικανών πολιτών, πολλοί άνθρωποι μιλούν τώρα για αυτό το νησιωτικό έθνος, το οποίο κάθεται μόλις 530 χιλιόμετρα από την ακτή από το Μαϊάμι. Εάν όλα τα buzz για την Κούβα, καθώς και αυτές οι 31 εικόνες δεν σας κάνουν να θέλετε να επισκεφθείτε, τίποτα δεν θα! Ελπίζω να σας άρεσε να βλέπετε μια ακόμη πλευρά της Κούβας, η οποία δεν περιλαμβάνει τις τυπικές εικόνες των παραδοσιακών αυτοκινήτων και φορτηγών της δεκαετίας του 1950 (αν και τα φωτογραφήσαμε επίσης!)
