OASIS DESTINATION OF THE WEEK
Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, so large that it’s as big as an American state in size, and more crowded by its population of 11 million. Oasis Partners strongly feels that Cuba is the “Go TO” destination in the coming decades when compared to other islands in the Caribbean. In summary, no other island such as Bahamas, Caymans, Virgin Islands etc can compare to the richness of culture offered by Cuba. Prior to the Castro revolution, Cuba already stood out as an advanced and fully modernized society. Today, even with the embargoes from the U.S. in place, the Cuban people are among the most educated and healthy in the world, sending medical teams around the globe to help nations in need. All this despite the average salary being just $30 USD per month, with the average family requiring about $300 USD per month to meet a basic living standard.
We found Cuban people to be the most resilient and dignified people we have ever met in this hemisphere. What they lack in material goods, they make up for in character and social culture. Any Cuban local can look and feel totally normal and comfortable whether in third world conditions or in the most expensive night club in the world. You would never know it, especially if they can speak english.
