A traveler to all parts and a newcomer to none, wrote Cuban poet José Martín as his country teetered on the brink of revolution. He was writing about freedom as much as travel, and today his vision is realized in the eclectic and bustling Havana International Airport. That makes it even more appropriate that the airport also bears his name, José Martí International Airport (HAV).
