Without doubt, Cuba is one of the most interesting places on the planet. This exotic country is has been attracting explorers, tourists and artists for hundreds of years, and its timeless charm can be fully experienced in the 21st century. It is a land of contrast with a developing economy, yet a very rich culture. The architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly and photogenic. But before you book your tickets, check out a few hot spots you don't want to miss.
Trinidad is a town in central Cuba who kind of got stuck in the 1850s. This can only be a good thing for the modern photographer. The colonial architecture will certainly look good in your photos and so will the nearby countryside. Trinidad also has an interesting live music scene worth checking out after a day of shooting.
You can't go to Havana and miss the Malecon, a 5 mile driveway along the coast of the city, stretching from Havana Harbor in Old Havana to the Vedado neighborhood. It's a wonderful place to photograph at sunset, with many young lovers going for walks as the day ends.
Cuba may not have the most impressive wildlife, apart from crocodiles, but it does have quite a few species of birds, approximately 350 to be more precise. If you're a bird photographer, Cuba could be your next hot destination. Look out for the tocororo, the endangered ivory-billed woodpecker, and the world's largest flamingo nesting site.
Valle de Vinales
The best way to go shooting in this beautiful rural region is on a bike. The exotic scenery is full of amazing viewpoints. The green tobacco fields and the campesino huts will make your photos look awesome.
