The island of Fidel Castro is the greatest of the Antilles, surrounded by a very beautiful sea (the Caribbean) and hemmed by coral barriers and from over 1.600 islands, often fascinating. The dictator has established a socialist regime from 1959, repressing the dissent with sentences and arrests of mass.
From more than 50 years from the revolution castrista the nation is poor, very poor, isolated, without democracy and with extremely modest economic activity.
The poverty and the social insecurity deface a very beautiful place and where to live could be pleasant, also only for the sea and the climate perpetually warm dampness.
Anyway the fascination of ancient colonial cities, from old Havana to Trinidad, from Sancti Spiritus to Camaguey is exalted by decadent atmosphere and resigned, but smiley appearance of the people.
