Cuba World Fact - Hostel in Iguazu






Cuba

Cuba Due to the relative political isolation, this is not visited by many tourists, but nevertheless they welcome you. The colonial architecture is quite formal, but in general it is a very relaxed community, for example are most people familiar with the cuban salsa, and music about the revolution. In the capital city, Havana you can experience the Museo de la Revolucion, housed in the former palacio presidencial, that contains documentaries and photographs from the Cubaan Revolution. Other than that, the island is sorrounded by the most beautiful beaches.
