The Local: Cuba Royal Caribbean , 2018

The modern vacationer is looking for an authentic experience while traveling. They don’t want to be a tourist; they want to experience their chosen destination like a local.

To continue introducing people to new places and cultures, Royal Caribbean releases its second season of The Local, an original, documentary-style miniseries created by MullenLowe. This time we highlight four inspirational Cubans determined to make a difference in their country.

Enmanual is a biologist rock climber dedicated to preserving the unique Cuban mountains called mogotes. Gabriela is a ballet prodigy sacrificing everything to become the first black prima ballerina in the Cuban National Ballet. And finally, Hubert and Manolo, the host and chef, respectively, of a paladar—an in-home Cuban restaurant—dedicate their craft to Esperanza, their friend who left them her home.
