The beach in Surfers Paradise
Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast of Australia is a city for tourists. Comprised of mostly bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and apartments, the city caters to all types of travelers. If you plan on visiting around November / December, know that the city tends to be taken over by schoolies - students on break who party non stop. This may not be the best time to visit if thats not what you're looking for, however, for some of you maybe it is?

A neon map showing the bus routes of Cuba at Havana Bus Station
If you’re a US resident trying to get to Cuba before it loses its communist charm, and you aren’t fortunate enough to have a visa approved by the US government, it still is relatively easy to get there. It is illegal and there are consequences if you get caught, but I don’t think catching tourists coming back from Cuba is high on a US Customs Agents list of things to bust people for. The general routes you can take are from the US to Mexico or the Bahamas, and then take a connecting flight to Havana. I went through Cancun, Mexico, so that is what my advice is based on.

The Sun Pyramid in Teotihuacan, Mexico
If you visit Mexico City, do not skip out on the Teotihuacan Pyramids. Book a tour out of Mexico City, they'll arrange your transportation to the Pyramids, and bring you by other sites on the way. Your hotel or hostel should be able to book the tour for you. You'll likely get a chance to try different Agave based liquors, including Tequila and Mezcal and get a traditional Mexican meal. Walk from the Moon Pyramid down Avenue of the Dead towards the Sun Pyramid. Climb the Sun Pyramid, touch the Abalone, and climb down. If you arrive at peak hours plan to spend some time waiting in line to climb the Sun Pyramid as limited numbers of people are allowed up at any given time. The stairs are steep and narrow, and its a long ways up, but its worth the climb.
