Traveling To Cuba – Are You Really Ready For Take Off?

Exploring the biggest of all Caribbean islands can be a great adventure, but it doesn’t come without a couple challenges. Here is what you need to know before traveling to Cuba!

All the information in one place:

  • Finding and connecting to wifi
  • The dual currency issue and how to get cash

The upscale vegan street food concept offers what other people do not serve: Great vegan chicken and waffles, po’ boys and fried okra – an array of sophisticated comfort food and specialty desserts.
