With little introduction needed, the ladies of Fathom went to Cuba, and then took over our Instagram. Yep, we’re excited too.
Let’s be real: This iconic photo is reason enough to head to Havana. We spent a few days in Cuba — the most talked-about destination in the Western Hemisphere — to soak up the city’s unique, time-stamped, nostalgia-inducing details. –@fathomwaytogo #travelwithfathom
In the old city, there’s plenty of beauty to be found in the crumbling details. Get lost for hours wandering around looking at colorful tile work and brightly painted doors. – @fathomwaytogo #travelwithfathom
Nothing says Buenos Dias in Cuba like a colorful breakfast. The lovely owners of our casa particular set the table each morning. – @fathomwaytogo #travelwithfathom
An afternoon stroll — and evidence of Cuban pride. – @fathomwaytogo #travelwithfathom
We stumbled upon a few streets where the buildings are refurbished, the homes are freshly painted, and the bougainvillea is blooming wildly. Encouraging signs of renewal. – @fathomwaytogo #travelwithfathom
The view from Hemingway’s room (#511) at Hotel Ambos Mundos in Old Havana. How many times did he lean out this exact window, drink in hand, while typing away at his old Royal Quiet Deluxe? – @fathomwaytogo #travelwithfathom
Just outside of Havana is Finca Vigia, Hemingway’s Cuban home — where he wrote The Old Man and the Sea and For Whom the Bell Tolls, plied houseguests with stories and liquor, and swam in this sky blue pool. Want to know where you should go next? Follow us at @fathomwaytogo
