Cuba is an extraordinary, enigmatic country and strikingly different from its Caribbean neighbours; an island steeped in the history of Spanish colonialism and post-war revolution. Reminders of the communist revolution of Fidel Castro are everywhere- from the Museum paying homage to the revolutionaries in Havana, to the party slogans painted on city walls. Cuba’s unique political system is an attraction in itself.
UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Havana is the Caribbean’s largest and most vibrant city. The crumbling facades of once grand colonial mansions line the cobbled streets; vintage Chevies, Buicks and Cadillac’s jostle for position along the Malecon. Sip Havana Club rum and listen to the sounds of salsa, mambo and samba or head to the Conde de Villanueva for a Cuban cigar as you absorb the sights and sounds of this fascinating fusion of African and Spanish cultures.
From the vibrant cities of Havana, Trinidad and Santiago de Cuba to the quiet natural beauty of the West, rich in tobacco and coffee plantations, Cuba offers real variation for the visitor. Some of the Caribbean’s best beaches offer a relaxing end to your Cuban adventure.
