Behind the Paradise
Dominican Republic and Cuba are two places in the Caribbean where many people plan to spend their vacation. Who does not dream of living in a Caribbean island surrounded by palm trees, white sand and turquoise water?. Those tourists who have had the privilege of visiting these places certainly have enjoyed all this, like the great variety of foods and services offered by hotel chains. What many believe that the vast majority does not know is the real life of the population carried every day. That is why the idea of this work came from my desire to bring you all a little bit of Behind the Paradise.
