Magic realism isn't a literary genre in Cuba –it's a way of life. Share in a world that has inspired an endless number of writers, poets, and filmmakers, including Alejo Carpentier, Hemingway, and Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. Or let Cuba 's avant-garde visual arts reveal a new way of seeing life. Stroll through the safe streets of Havana and soak in centuries of architecture and history.
