Just working it out in Cuba, one day at a time


(Jauretsi, at Havana Biennial 2012)

Jauretsi is “a New York based Cuban Culture Hunter”  (Billboard Magazine)

I am a Cuban-American who has been visiting the motherland for nearly 20 years, just as long as I have been living in New York, where I excelled in the field of Media. Over the years, my print and media clients have included Conde Nast, eBay, Pharrell Williams’ I Am Other , The Standard Hotel, and a bevy of Luxury clients. To view my American media work, visit Jauretsi.com. On the side, I have always been deeply impassioned by my Cuban roots, thus my complicated journey back to the island.

During my first documentary shoot in Cuba early 2000’s, I launched this blog and radio show. It was a soundboard to share my thoughts on the conversation of engaging Cuba as an American. Since then, each of my journeys back to Cuba revealed a curious youth culture ready to join the 21st century. Then December 17, 2014 happened, the symbolic day.  President Obama changed the course of history. All of our lives shifted as we finally entered an era of healing. Then Mr. Trump was elected, and well, let’s just say all the progress has moved backwards. The important thing to know is that travel to Cuba is STILL legal for Americans. Read the 6 Reasons You Should Still Travel to Cuba. Until the ship steers back towards a more positive engagement with US/Cuba relations, I will continue to dive head-first into the creative swirl of energy that is The New Cuba.

The New Cuba offers project consulting, curated trips, and content creation on the island — all with the intention of fostering better understanding of the current culture and climate of the Cuban people. All itineraries are compliant with US Regulations (OFAC) for Travel to Cuba.

This blog is an inspiration board of all things New Cuba, as well as some of our current projects. Stay tuned as I attempt to catch this deluge in a paper cup.

    Very interesting!!! I’m Cuban American living in California. I was just in Cuba this past December with my parents who hadn’t been back for 49 years. We actually drove by Alamar and on way to Habana. The entire trip was incredible!

    Great blog and good to see there are others out there caught between Havana and Miami – That’s what makes New York so great – freedom to think and criticize, and be yourself!! Keep rockin’
