I spent 10 days in Cuba as a holiday while living in Mexico. As a city girl, my favourite destination was Havana and I‘ll always have found memories of strolling the Malecon and drinking mojitos in the Havana bars.

I also visited Trinidad and took a day trip to Viñales from Havana. Although I loved learning about the country, it wasn’t easy to travel Cuba on a budget.
