Just 90 miles from Key West, Cuba has been forbidden fruit for most Americans since the 1960s. But travel restrictions were eased somewhat in 2011, and visiting Cuba is much easier than you think. Just as elsewhere in the Caribbean, the island offers UNESCO World Heritage sites, 16th-century fortresses, inviting sand beaches, four-star hotels and resorts, and the sounds of salsa. But unlike other islands, Cuba is an open-air museum of vintage Studebakers, DeSotos, Plymouths, Chevys, and Caddies, as well as a fascinating mix of crumbling mansions and freshly renovated architectural gems that predate Castro and the Cuban Revolution.

Here’s a primer on must-sees if you get a chance to visit in the near future.
