Havana, Cuba

Embargoes are so 2014. The door to our Caribbean neighbor is finally open, and you’re one airline flash sale away from pulling the trigger on a plane ticket to Cuba. But where to spend your pesos once you get there?

Forget what you know about Cuban sandwiches and fried plantains. What you should be on the hunt for is ropa vieja, the country’s signature stewed beef with vegetables. Then work it all off with a night of salsa dancing with the locals (we promise not to judge).

Iron your linen pants and put on that fedora. It’s time to experience firsthand those hot Havana nights.
