Look out Cuba! Rap superstar Kanye West, wife Kim Kardashian and members of her reality TV  family are the latest celebrities to visit Havana.

They stopped at the Museum of Rum on Wednesday, stepping out of a hot-pink antique American convertible as they snapped selfies and were recorded by a television crew following them around.

Cuba has seen a stream of celebrities since the declaration of detente with the US in December 2014. On Tuesday, Chanel held its first fashion show in Havana and stars like Gisele Bundchen, Vin Diesel, Tilda Swinton and Vanessa Paradis were all in attendance.

These A-listers are some of the most famous entertainment figures to visit the island, joining a small class of ultra-famous visitors that includes the Rolling Stones. President Barack Obama went in March, and the latest instalment of the multibillion-dollar Fast and Furious action movie franchise is filming there now.

Earlier this week, the first passengers to cruise from the US to Cuba in nearly 40 years streamed into a crowd cheering the rebirth of commercial travel on waters that served as a stage for a half-century of Cold War hostility.
