This is the first post in video contributor Kelley Ferro’s two-part video series on Cuba. The second part is here.

I’ve been intrigued by Cuba ever since I could remember, mostly because my dad was always playing Cuban records around the house. And as I grew up to be a travel journalist, my fascination with this musical, vibrant island nation only increased. Finally, I was given my chance to see Cuba for myself. We based ourselves in Havana for a whirlwind 48-hour tour of the city.

The best part was that all of our experiences were drawn from recommendations from locals. Cuba Travel Services facilitated these interaction so we could meet several locals each day, ask questions and get to know Havana through their eyes.

The video above should give you a little more insight than a guidebook could, as we went off the beaten path. We met local children in an after-school program, where they practice and perform circus acts. We cruised the Malécon in vintage American cars at sunset. We also danced, drank and ate throughout our days and nights in this exuberant city.

In part 2: Artsy Havana.
