Havana, Cuba’s El Canal winery, owned and operated by 65-year-old Orestes Estevez and his family, thrives thanks to an unconventional and specific practice: slipping condoms onto fermenting jugs.
The video for “Hey Ma,” a sort of cerberus of the Latin music industry consisting of three chart powerhouses, brings together Camila Cabello (the one Fifth Harmony person whose name you know, now no longer of Fifth Harmony), Pitbull (my father) and J Balvin (my son) for a lite pop-reggaeton jaunt through Cuba,…

On this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, our A-Plot was the continued Kardashian reign in Cuba; our B-Plot was Scott’s Cuba FOMO; and our C-Plot was Lamar’s recovery. #LEGGO
This week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians our A-Plot was the group trip to Cuba; our B-Plot was Kris Jenner missing her kids; our C-Plot was Lamar’s continued struggles with health and sobriety; and our D-Plot was an inside look at what happens to your former college classmate who only read one book on…
Eight members of Cuba’s men’s national volleyball team—including the team’s captain—are currently being detained in Finland on charges of aggravated rape.
So nice that Khloé is having a great time in Cuba! Here she is posing in front of a “Fidel” tribute, which is either honoring the Latin root word for “faithful” (fid-, fidel-) or, more likely, the dictator who has kept Cubans in misery since the 1950s. Looking hot, girl!
It seems that outsiders love to fantasize Cuba as a romantic place that time forgot, a time capsule to the early ‘60s, and/or a snapshot from a scene from Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, as opposed to the realities of it: a place where 11 million people live off $20 a month and where food is historically scarce; a place…
Just one day after a U.S. cruise ship touched a Havana port for the first time in 48 years, People reports that the Kardashians will be voyaging to the island to film their reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which began its 12th season on Sunday. Just think: While Cubans continued to experience…
According to Fashionista, various Spanish language outlets are reporting that Tony Castro, grandson of Fidel, will walk in Chanel’s Cruise collection show in Cuba’s El Paseo Del Prado today at 6:30 p.m. EST. There is so much going on in that sentence!

Last week, Airbnb announced that they would be opening their digital doors to Cuba, allowing American tourists to book lodging from local hosts with over 1,000 listings. Great! But in Cuba, this new business model might just be a throwback to straight hustling.
Less than a month after President Obama restored full diplomatic relations with Cuba, his administration announced Thursday that they'll ease travel restrictions to the country for U.S. citizens. That means you'll no longer have to pretend you're going as part of a church group or for "professional research."
Short answer: Diplomacy.
The United States and Cuba are friends again? Great. Friends that negotiate the extradition of Assata Shakur, aka JoAnne Chesimard, a Black Panther who was framed for killing a cop in America and found asylum in Cuba? Not great.
Diana Nyad has made landfall (hurricane humor, sorry) just moments ago, which means that the crowd gathered at Key West is right this moment cheering her for successfully hauling herself out of the briny deep.
After failing last year (and the time before that, and the time before that, and the time before that…) to swim the 103 miles from Cuba to Florida, crawl exhausted onto the beaches at Key West, and enjoy a mojito Fidel Castro made and bottled in a small, shark-proof thermos, endurance swimmer Diana Nyad was, as of…
