GO THERE!!! ... Feel this country!
the real Cuban feeling!
Cuba is a spectacular country, with
beautiful and very warm loving people. Most tourists will
go to areas such as Varadero,
Jardides del Rey or
Holguin and stay in resorts,
but my best advice to you is to travel around the country,
stay in Casas Particulares,
where you will be a guest in a Cuban family's home. Have dinner
in the Paladares, which
are small private restaurants and talk to the people, mingle
with the local Cubans and see how it is they live ... La
heard somebody say ...
In this country there is no gasoline, but cars are all over
There`s no food, but everybody is cooking dinner ...
They have no money, but everybody is dancing and drinking

looking for "independent" travelers who can travel
together as a group. In other words, they need people who can
adapt quickly to change and who have a resilient spirit. Also,
they are looking for people who have some type of professional
or volunteer medical experience and/or who can act as translators.
Of course, most of all, they are looking for people who are
serious about the mission of the CubaAidsProject and will be
responsible in their behavior.
