Propaganda billboards & murals
The first thing that makes Cuba stand out from most countries in the world is the lack of advertising. But you’ll notice that the billboards are still there – the advertising has just been replaced by the latest Cuban propaganda. Whether they’re filling you in on the American embargo, telling you about the benefits of Socialism or calling for the release of the Cuban Five, these propaganda billboards are a uniquely Cuban institution. They’re found along most major roads throughout Cuba. So keep your eyes open, and when you find a good example, make sure to tell your taxi driver to stop for a picture!
