BEDFORD, Texas, Oct. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Though poverty is still a way of life for many Cuban citizens, there is now a feeling of hope and optimism in the air. One of the biggest changes that tourists first notice is due to this optimism. The people of Cuba, with their renewed hope, have become more warm and welcome as Cuba comes back to life.
Food - Once hard to get seasonings and lack of restaurants made it hard to find anything except the traditional chicken and rice. Now the streets are filled with restaurants offering delicious Cuban specialties from pastries to seafood to fresh fruit. Cuban food blends the spices and seasonings of the Caribbean, Africa and Spain and now that these ingredients are once again available, visitors can enjoy dishes like ropa vieja, viandas and boliche, as well as fresh mint in their mojitos.
Transportation/Shopping - Where streets used to be filled with hustlers trying to sell tourists hard to find items, today the streets are energized with taxis and buses offering rides, and local vendors with push carts selling fresh fruits, vegetables and local delicacies. Where no businesses existed, now there are many, including coffee shops, gift shops and food markets. Tourists can buy souvenir caps and straw hats and artwork of all types and quality where the artists are available to barter with. Cuban coffee beans are a favorite and in high demand among tourists.
Accommodations - While it has become easier to find a flight and travel to Cuba, finding accommodations can still be tricky. Many bed and breakfasts are popping up for those wishing to experience a genuine Cuban experience. There are a number of hotels that are in the process of being renovated including the Hotel Saratoga, Hotel Florida and the elegant 5 star Iberostar Parque Central.
Change is coming to Cuba, and for the Cuban people, it's all good.
