The recent changes towards Cuba have created a stir among those who love to travel. The Caribbean island has seen a new breed of tourist, compelled to discover the hidden treasures that had been kept away from Americans for decade upon decade.

The island was off limits to those of us who wanted to pop over on a purely touristic exploration of this Caribbean ray of light, shrouded by a cloud that was half a century thick.
