Khloé Kardashian is loving Cuba.

The reality star took to Instagram Wednesday evening to share a series of pictures from her family's trip to Havana.

In the first snap, she captured her and sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, plus family friend Malika Haqq, smoking cigars.

"Pablo was here! Cuba," Khloé, 31 captioned the selfie, adding a Cuban flag emoji.

Referencing Cuban Spanish slang for "big lips," Khloé captioned the next selfie with the word "bemba" as she puckered her red lips alongside Kourtney, 37.

"Te amo con todo mi corazón Malika," she captioned a selfie of her and Haqq, which translates to "I love you with all of my heart."

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also shared pictures and videos of herself out in the streets of Havana, wearing a nude-colored dress, a grey duster coat and a floppy hat.

In one clip, the star strolls along, pulling her hat down over her eyes while cameras flash in the background. "Bendito baby," she wrote, which translates to "blessed baby."

The star also took a moment to express how happy she was about being able to visit the country, sharing a picture of the streets of Havana lined with the colorful, classic convertibles.



"With everyday, my goal is to expand my mind," she wrote. "Now, it has been filled with new memories and knowledge of culture, food, traditions, daily life.... It will never go back to yesterday's dimensions! I'm so blessed to be able to appreciate another's culture. God is GREAT! Thank you for my opportunities."


Khloé also tweeted about how the trip inspired her to brush up on her Spanish skills: "I can't wait to get back home and start with my Spanish tutor! Just a beginner but I'm on my way! Here's hoping!"


Kardashian also joked about her Cuban espresso addition, which was documented on old episodes of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami: "You guys I have had about 4 cortiditos today lol! I'm hooked all over again."


Khloé and her two sisters, along with Kim's husband Kanye West, 38, and their daughter North, 2, plus Kourtney's three kids, traveled to Cuba earlier this week with a camera crew and plan to document the vacation on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Their trip hasn't gone without criticism, though – Khloé's Instagrams have attracted plenty of angry commenters accusing the star of "glamorizing" the country and its communist regime, and South Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen slammed their "vapid" visit in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE Wednesday.

"I know it's cool for celebrities to go to Cuba, but the Cuban people don't experience the glamorous Havana that is featured on social media," Rep. Ros-Lehtinen said. "Far from photo shoots and fruity drinks, everyday Cubans experience a different, sad reality. Now, the Kardashians are parachuting into the island to tape their vapid TV show. Haven't the Cuban people suffered enough?"
