Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean at the confluence of the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Cuba is south of the eastern United States and the Bahamas, west of the Turks and Caicos Islands and Haiti and east of Mexico.

Cuba is the most populous country in the Caribbean. Its culture and customs draw from several sources including the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples, the period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves, and its proximity to the United States.

In general, Cuban police lean over backwards not to molest tourists since they are dependent on tourism for income. Personal security on the island is in general quite good. Until recently, crime was little known. That is changing with the continued economic hard times and we have seen a rise in crime in certain areas such as Old Havana (Habana Vieja) and parts of Santiago, where purse snatchings and muggings have been common. Because of this, there is now extra vigilance by the police who have taken to asking for IDs a lot more frequently and crime has gone down. Such ID checks are common in tourist and high visibility areas such as the Malecon along the Havana shore. It is less common in non-tourist areas .

Cuban cuisine is a result of the Spanish and African influences on the country throughout its history. It is mainly based around pork, rice, legumes, vegetables and fruit and, thanks to the wealth of its coastline, fish and shellfish are never far from the table.Some of the most popular culinary specialties are "Moors and Christians" (Moros y Cristianos), a mixture of white rice and black beans, roast pork; "Ropa Vieja" (literally old clothes, actually shredded beef), yucca, "Vianda frita" (fried marinated beef) and lobster enchilada.Two outstanding drink options are the Mojito and the Daiquiri, cocktails based on Cuban rum, the national drink of Cuba.
