November 2023 \ World News \ COVER STORY—DISCOVERING CUBA

One of my favorite places I’ve visited is Havana, Cuba. On my way home from Costa Rica, I spent a week in Havana. The colors, the music, the beautiful men and the cars! I love vintage and antique cars and own a couple myself. — Megalyn Echikunwoke

At a press meet at the Grand Muthu Havana Hotel on October 26, Cuba’s Tourism Minister Juan Carlos Garcia Granda responding to a question from INDIA EMPIRE emphasized: “We are committed to bringing in tourists from India to Cuba. You need a tourist card to come into Cuba, and these are sold at our embassies and consulates worldwide. We are also looking to offer high quality Indian cuisine in Cuba. I believe the Muthu Group will play an increasing role in enhancing tourism into Cuba from not just India, but also from the Indian Diaspora that resides in the United States.”

Just before sunrise as we were set to fly out of Havana it dawned quite clearly that there is much in Cuba that awaits exploration, and it just doesn’t stop at Havana.
