Packing For Cuba

Thanks to Katrina from Fit Life Creation we are packing our bags and heading to Cuba for a week. While attending this all-inclusive retreat we will have the opportunity to learn from a variety of influencers as well as attend workshops dealing with business, health, and achieving your full potential. The trip almost seemed too good to be true THEN we heard there would be scuba diving, an old car tour through Havana, the ability to dance the night away in a Salsa club, frequent trips to the beach and the opportunity to provide service and give back to the local community.

An adventure like this requires quite a bit of packing, so if you are planning on visiting Cuba here are some packing tips and suggestions for general travelers.
