Little Havana and Coconut Grove are hidden treasures waiting to be uncovered by intrepid explorers. It is rumored that one could spend a whole day in Little Havana without hearing a word of English spoken. Saturated with Cuban culture, a common sight is cafes where people sip cafecitos (Cuban coffee) and passionately argue about everything from love to politics, while the sounds of salsa and merengue fill the air. Domino Park is a classic stop to watch Cuban elders play dominos.

If there is one thing that I have learnt, it is the more I see, the more there is to see! My name is Tracy Burrows and I am the managing editor of Out There Global, a community driven travel magazine platform for cost effective, luxury, unusual and extraordinary but mostly immersive travel ideas around the globe. From Jan 2014 - Dec 2016 I managed the LatestSightings.com blog (a United Nations World Summit Award Winner: Culture & Tourism 2016 & National Geographic partner). I was also consulting editor at MOZambique Magazine, and contributor at Sawubona Magazine (South African Airways inflight magazine). Prior to my career I obtained a tourism marketing degree, and graduated from a 2 year 'Hospitality Management in Development Program' in California. Following this I acquired a journalism diploma and since it's been all about travel and writing! And my nourishment comes from all those who have impacted me: family; friends; and strangers alike. So thank you for inspiring me, and for joining our journey!
