As diplomatic relations between Cuba and the US continue to thaw, it’s just a matter of time before Cuba’s beach bars start being invaded by US beach bar bums. Maybe “invaded” isn’t the right word to use since, you know, that whole Bay of Pigs invasion thing. Whatever word you use to describe it, the Americans are coming and they’re going to want fruity tropical drinks at a beach bar.
That’s where I (and you by proxy) come in. I did an online search for Cuban beach bars and there’s no good list out there. In fact, the first two Cuba beach bars that came up in the search results were in Macedonia and Bulgaria. See, the world needs us and so does Cuba’s beach bars.
This is where I need your help. In case you didn’t know, Cuba is a huge country when it comes to Caribbean island standards. In fact, I’d be surprised if the land mass of all of the islands in the Caribbean equaled that of Cuba’s. Listing beach bars as “in Cuba” doesn’t really help. That would be like saying “You know, that raw bar in the Keys” – it just doesn’t help.
If you feel so inclined, I would appreciate any information about any beach bars in Cuba along with their location. If you can provide images for me to use, that would be great! Although it would be helpful, you don’t need to provide me with their websites or social media pages. Having the name of the beach bar and its location should be good enough to get me started. Beach bars at resorts count as well because hey, we’ve got to stay somewhere and resorts around the world have proven that they can pull off the whole beach bar thingy.
You can leave a comment below, email me at info at beach bar bums dot com or get at me on social media. I won’t be able to reward you with anything but I will credit you for getting me pointed in the right direction and if I use your image, you’ll get mentioned as the photographer which I’m pretty sure you can put on your resume.
