Even though Cuba’s revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro, has long since retired as president and finally stepped down as leader of the Communist Party in 2011, his aura and legacy continued to hang over the Caribbean island nation until his recent death. While Cuba’s future remains a mystery, now is an undeniably historic time to visit the country.
