“If it’s so difficult for Americans to get to Cuba, why bother?” I asked my new travel companion. We’d just met as part of Out Adventures’ Cultural Cuba gay tour.
“Well, it’s kind of like forbidden fruit.”
His answer hit me harder than a double Havana Club on the rocks; the allure of Cuba — despite Trump’s hardened stance on US-Cuba relations, the “sonic attacks”, the hurricanes etc. — is the mystery surrounding the flamboyant destination. The thrill of going somewhere you were told you couldn’t.
Out Adventures is taking over lavish Northridge Inn this July for our Big Gay Cottage Getaway. The inn & resort is located on Lake Bernard in the Muskoka region of Canada, aka The Hamptons of the North.
