Get On Your Feet!

Seriously, who goes to Cuba and doesn’t dance! No one, that’s who.


Like Cuban-American superstar Gloria Estefan sings, “Get on your feet... get up and make it happen! Get on your feet... Stand up and take some action!”


Most evenings, Cubans can be found out and about at any local restaurant or bar, swinging their hips to some serious salsa or mambo tunes. Don’t know how to get down like a local? Head to Salsabor A Cuba, a local dance school in Central Havana. When you’re ready to hit the floor, Cha-Cha-Cha your way to the Vedado neighborhood, a central business district not far from the Plaza de Revolucion where you’ll find plenty of bars and cafes with live music.

Over the past year, travelers have been heading down to Cuba in steadily increasing numbers -- with no slow-down in sight. In fact, tourists flocked to this gorgeous Caribbean island in record numbers: Cuba’s tourism board reports that the island saw 4 million visitors in 2016!

And why not? With untouched beaches, authentic cuisine, a lively music and dance culture, friendly locals...there are endless reasons why traveling to Cuba should be on everyone’s list for where to go next.
