If America had not invaded Cuba at the Bay of Pigs do you think the Cuban Missile crisis would have taken place?
The Cuban Missile Crisis was partly motivated by Fidel Castro's concern about his own security, and his pressuring Khrushchev for support. Whether or not the Bay of Pigs happened may not have influenced that concern or fear on Castro's part. The Bay of Pigs was certainly not the only way that the… US government was trying to destabilise Castro. If the Bay of Pigs had never happened Castro still would have had many legitimate grounds for worrying about US-backed threats to his rule in Cuba. Most likely even without the Bay of Pigs he still would be seeking Soviet protection and Khrushchev would still be willing to give it to him in the form of Soviet missiles. (MORE)

If you mean what can you do when vacationing, it really depends on the area since some have beaches while others don't. Apart from that, you can always go to a hotel and spend a nice time there and go to the pool. If you are staying at someone's house, you can always walk around and get to know diff…erent places. In Havana you can go to the aquarium, circus, zoo..., in Varadero you can obviously go to the beach and the wonderful places they have there. It really depends where, so you should specify. Other than that, you can make new friends (Cuban friends are extemely funny and compassionate) and have some fun! Or you can go to cabarets, clubs, shopping centers.... Hope I helped! Good luck (MORE)
