Cradling the Caribbean is Cuba, once a playground for colonial settlers and escapist writers, wealthy mobsters and avid revolutionaries. Snapshots show classic cars or cities frozen in time, but peek beyond the frame to see a spirited people picking up pieces of their past to create radical artworks or fiery melodies. Go and paint your own picture: you, mojito in hand, swaying between sun and sea.

Fun Fact

Cuba is one of the most populated islands in the world with over 11 million inhabitants—many of which are doctors (the country has one of the highest rates of doctors per capita), most of which can read and write (it also has one of the highest literacy rates in the world at 99.8%), and all of whom love to bust a move (Cubans invented mambo and cha-cha).
