The 12-table restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining, but there’s not a bad seat in the house—everywhere you look, you’ll be surrounded by jaw-dropping turquoise water.

Ever since Cuba opened its doors to tourists, we’ve been having level-9 freakouts about how stunning the small Caribbean country is. With its beautiful and crusty old 16th century architecture and classic Spanish Colonial style, Cuba offers an experience that seems to be almost frozen in time. The warm beaches and lush overgrowth of the countryside, the bustling beat of Havana, and the incredibly charming people of this island make it seem alive with authenticity.

The brilliant duo behind the lens at travel and photography blog This is The Place I Was Telling You About recently trekked to Cuba with the Cuba Travel Network. Not only were they willing to share their insanely gorgeous photos, but they’ve also given us the full scoop on their trip. Read on for the highlights.
