A great marvel for any globetrotter is encountering the familiar, something you can identify with on a foreign land. New Year's Eve in Cuba is somewhat of an enigma. On the one hand there are Cubans who celebrate the January 1st, 1959 anniversary of when Castro's revolution victoriously marched into La Habana. Other Cubans are hoping the new year will liberate them from the product of that same revolution. Hopes and political persuasions aside three things are for certain. Cuba is a rich and lively, complex and notwithstanding familiar set of coordinates for a New Year's Eve celebration, Cubans are always ready for a party, and they are eager to celebrate it alongside you.
Celebrating New Year's Eve in Cuba is the ultimate way to ring in 2020. Cubans come out in force, roasting pigs, dancing, drinking rum, hugging and wearing their hearts on their sleeves. There's no better day to experience this iconic island and its people; it's an experience everyone should live.

Guests are provided multiple opportunities to do so with activities such as volunteering at an NGO, gifting a hospital medical equipment, teaching English to young students and donating art supplies to children with special needs.
However, some believe Cuba travel is not legal considering the recent changes in travel regulations in fact, nothing much has changed for Americans who want to experience Cuba. To clarify, there are 11 categories under which Americans can visit including humanitarian, family visits, academic and religious travel but one, Support for the Cuban People is the sole category that enables travelers to leisurely visit Cuba legally. Provided they book through a tour operator who has experience in legal travel, they have nothing to worry about.
