The constellations appeared upside-down in Cuba, why?

A friend of mine from Montreal just spent a week in Cuba, Cayo Coco. She says that when she was outdoors at night the constellations she's familiar with appeared to be upside down. Cassiopeia, for instance, looked like an M instead of a W. No, she wasn't stoned, drunk, tripping. Does anyone have an explanation for this?
