Have you gotten that itch to visit Cuba? With travel restrictions eased for Americans and more airlines recently opening up direct flights to the island, Cuba has become more of a top travel destination than ever. Food Network’s Guy Fieri has had Cuba on his travel bucket list since he was a teenager, so the time has finally come for him to make the trip he’s dreamed about for decades.

Guy Fieri’s Cuban Adventure premieres on Travel Channel Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 9 p.m./8c. 

While filming a special episode of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives in Cuba, Guy Fieri and his crew made time to explore the rest of what the island has to offer. In Guy Fieri’s Cuban Adventure, we get an intimate look at how Cuba’s restaurant scene continues to evolve after a shift in state regulations, an evening at home for a family dinner with one of the area’s most innovative chefs and, of course, a lesson in classic cars with gear-head Guy and a local auto fanatic group.
