Hi Asya, thanks for sharing your vlog with the Travel Massive community!

What was the most surprising thing you discovered about Cuba?

I’m interested to visit (one day) since I find there’s always a connection with people who live on islands.

Great question. There are a few things but I would say I was surprised that USD is the main currency that most things are priced in when you go to the touristy areas even though USD is illegal in Cuba but people still will accept it & it circulates among the people & they love it if you tip or pay for things in USD. And the CUP - Moneda National the people hate if you tip with that or buy things with it but they can't deny you.

I was also surprised when talking to some of the locals how some of them actually work around the system to be quit wealthy. It just showed me that it doesn't matter a persons circumstances, if you really want something you'll find a way.

I love Cuba & the people though its a great country to visit.

I went to Cuba for a couple of weeks back in 2012. It would be interesting to see how much its changed in 10 years! Varadero was nice to be able to walk across the street to the beach but my heart was in Trinidad.

I really liked the idea of staying in casa particulares. The hosts were always lovely and would nearly always offer to make you dinner for a small additional cost. Which was usually better than eating in a restaurant!

That's awesome, we've never been to Trinidad yet but definitely have to go!
