Everyone has heard about Cuba, but it might be one of the most interesting places that people really don’t know too much about.

Culture is something that is lived every day - everyone shares their culture with others, at home, at work or in public places. To better communicate with specific groups of people, it is important to understand their values, beliefs and daily activities. Latino communities are groups that are made up of people of different nationalities, including many races. This community also includes people of different skin color, sizes, hair types and accents.
