Cuba offers an affordable slice of Caribbean heaven, with its bone-white, unspoilt beaches, lush green hills, the constant, hypnotic sound of salsa and authentic colonial atmosphere.
Stroll around Havana, taking in its cigar factories, gleaming but ancient American cars, Che Guevara murals and crumbling buildings. Whether you’re after pulsating nightlife or fascinating museums, you’ll find them all in Cuba’s capital. In fact, with its unique history, and offering great value, the whole island is the perfect destination for an unforgettable holiday.
As well as being charmed by Havana, it’s worth hiring a car and seeing what else Cuba has to offer. Trinidad’s charming and well-preserved cobbled streets and pastel houses are combined with plenty of live music.
Santiago de Cuba, in a beautiful valley, has some of the island’s oldest museums and palaces, and finest architecture. Near Pinar del Rio, Viñales is a quiet, pretty region, which is fantastic for horse riding and hiking. Here you’ll find tobacco fields, a labyrinthine network of caves and limestone cliffs. Ciénaga de Zapata National Park has massive swamps and some world-famous bird watching.
In the popular beach resort of Varadero, most hotels are all-inclusive. The beach is vast and clean, the water’s incredibly warm and the accommodation is of a high standard.
Also think about visiting Santa Clara for its buzzing cultural scene, or the tropical island idyll of Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo for deep-sea fishing, diving and water sports. Cuba has some awesome coral reefs and mesmerising marine life. With so much to experience, it’s no wonder the largest Caribbean island’s vibrant and passionate approach to life have been drawing visitors down the ages.
