HAVANA TIMES — Encouraging healthy eating habits is the aim of the new, one-of-a-kind shop which recently opened its doors to the public in the heart of the city of Santiago de Cuba.

La Opera is a modern and welcoming establishment that sells healthy, organic products. There, we can find pickled vegetables, canned fruits, natural drinks, cereals, honey and its derivatives, whole-wheat bread, herbal medicines and spices. In addition, the store serves as a nutrition center that offers detailed information on how to prepare each product.

The store also sells ornamental plants, and it is the only place in Cuba where you can buy a delicious, low-calory beer.

Below are some photos of this charming establishment. I invite you to pay it a visit when you’re in town.

    That’s true, but my favorite peanut butter does cost $10.00.
