Sister Khloe Kardashian kept their visit well documented, posting dozens of photos of the family.

Some of the 31-year-old's posts even weaved Kanye West's Life of Pablo album into the mix, as one picture of the group — including Kim and Kourtney — was captioned: "Pablo was here! Cuba."

Others documented activities like cigar smoking, sightseeing and more.

But critics quickly slammed the family's high-profile visit to the financially struggling country. One U.S. representative even publicly bashed the reality stars' so-called frivolous trip to Havana.

"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," South Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen told PEOPLE magazine in a statement. "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," she continued. "Haven't the Cuban people suffered enough?"
