I really appreciate your pro/con list Pierre. It could be really helpful to someone seriously considering studying abroad in Cuba – one of the few reasons we can visit. Other valid reasons we’re allowed into Cuba include visiting relatives, for professional research, if you are a journalist or producer, if you have a religious obligation or if you are a professional athlete/performer/artist.
Fun facts about Cuba:
Cuba has the highest doctor to patient ratio in the world.
Cuba has a 99.8% literacy rate.
The reason you only see old fashion cars (cars manufactured before 1959) is because older vehicles are the only cars Cuban citizens can legally own.
Has anyone been to Cuba? Is there anything else I should know before I go?
