These 5 Instagram ‘micro influencers’ never steered me wrong during my time in Cuba.

When I arrived in Cuba I found the first of these individuals via Instagram hashtags. And I reached out for the low down on a restaurant in Havana.

They told me it was terrible and that I shouldn’t eat there. But the place had a fantastic looking Instagram page full of pretty women enjoying wonderful cuisine in what I now know are paid posts from paid influencers. So I went there anyway and guess what? They were correct and it was horrible.

If you want directions to the best spots in Cuba or are simply curious as to what life can look like in Cuba, do yourself a favour and follow their accounts!
