Hotspot parks, access cards, and 3G: what it’s like to use the internet in Cuba

The recent news about Cuba has me wondering if I’ll ever be able to visit again. I went for the first time a little over 2 months ago — I came back and told everyone it was one of the most magical places I had ever been. Difficulties getting internet access was a mild inconvenience and kind of a perk of traveling there (although no-internet would be a nightmare for some, understandably). Despite the difficulties, it wasn’t impossible, and it proved to be an interesting experience.
