social life in havana

Life is social in Havana

Imagine this: No internet, no cellphones. Life immediately gets far more social. Instead of standing in elevators looking at their blackberries, people actually have to look at each other and say Hi. That is, if there were any elevators!

Havana is definitely a blast from the past. Step into the 80s when life was far simpler and face-to-face conversations held far more importance. It’s wonderful to see neighbors hanging out with each other on the porch. Wherever you go in Havana, you can join the conversation – and I don’t mean through twitter.

    I’m Dominican, and from what I’ve heard, Cuba is safer than Dominican Republic, however I’ve never been to Cuba, and I can’t tell you if this is true or not. But if you go to Punta Cana in Dominican Republic, in my opniion it’s the safest place in the whole country and it has most of the best hotels in the Caribbean, especially Be1varo. Also, the Dominican Republic has many cities, like Santo Domingo, Santiago de Los Caballeros, Puerto Plata, La Romana, etc. It also has the highest point in the Caribbean, so if you like hiking, you can visit Pico Duarte that is over 10,000ft high. If you decide to go to the Dominican Republic, I would recommend you to visit these places: Punta Cana, Samane1, Ciudad Colonial, Pico Duarte, Puerto Plata, and Casa De Campo. Good luck.
