Roads of Cuba – Photo Essay

Being on the road in Cuba is without a totally different experience. For one, there are no advertisements at all. The only ‘ads’ you see are about the revolution and celebrating over  half a century of revolution.

The cars are mainly classics from the 40’s and 50’s and some of the most unique motorcycles I’ve ever seen drive past you!

But the best part, there are hardly any cars, no traffic and the roads, funny enough, are great!

    I’ve always thought Cuba must have some of the greatest mechanics in the world considering how long they manage to keep their cars running. Of course, with no traffic and great roads, I guess accidents are a whole lot rarer too. Looks like a fun place to go driving.

  3. How cool! It’s like stepping back in time to see all those classic cars. Thanks for the insight on Cuba – a country that I’ve found fascinating but unreachable to visit as Americans (for now).

    Cuban cars are amazing! Everyone I know who’s travelled to Cuba returns with vintage car shots that arguably you couldn’t get anywhere else in the world. Great photos!

    As everybody said, I would also say the same thing that Cuba cars are great! I wonder How those cars are still running.
