Our Story

A New York native and transplant to Havana, Rita McNiff is the founder of Like A Cuban, a boutique agency that curates custom “like a local” experiences for visitors to Cuba. An avid traveler herself, Rita visited Cuba for the first time in 2015. During her 10-day stay, she drove the island with a friend, picking up hitchhikers along the way, sharing stories with locals and, as the days went by, completely falling in love with the island and its people.

Today, Rita lives in Vedado, Havana with her Cuban-American daughter Tessa.
