A holiday in Cuba takes you to the largest island in the Caribbean and one of the region’s most fascinating and rewarding destinations. The US has eased restrictions on citizens travelling to visit the country that Europeans have long enjoyed, and so availability is limited.
Cuba is for the open-minded and the open-hearted. Although still classed as a developing country Cuba provides one of the most beautiful and historical backdrops imaginable. Steeped in the history of Spanish colonialism and post-war revolution, Cuba’s unique culture is still very much in evidence today, from its stunning colonial architecture to the 1950s Chevvies cruising the waterfront Malecon Boulevard.
From a number Cuba holiday resorts you can explore UNESCO World Heritage sites, plus experience breathtaking natural scenery, coffee and sugar plantations. There is a wealth of unspoilt tropical beaches, among them the Varadero beaches which stretch along a 20 kilometre peninsula of pure white sand and clear turquoise waters creating adventurous Caribbean holidays.
Trips to Cuba offer diversity ranging from western Cuba’s scenic tobacco plantations to Havana, a unique city with perfectly preserved architecture. There is Trinidad, a small town virtually unchanged since Spanish colonial times through to Santiago, Cuba’s atmospheric second city and host to the country’s biggest annual carnival.
