Castaway Carribbean beaches
Cuba is fringed by some of the world’s most glorious beaches, so kick off your flip-flops and dive right in! You’ll be greeted by waving palm trees, warm seas and sugar-white sand. Off the coastline, there’s a small scattering of islands guaranteed to send you into a Robinson Crusoe reverie. Swing in a hammock, snorkel through coral reefs and stroll barefoot along the beach at sunset.
Fill your honeymoon with Cuban charm
Cuba’s white-washed sands have always lured newly-weds to relax and enjoy some Caribbean rays but there is so much more to a Cuba honeymoon than just beaches. Roll your own his and hers cigars in scenic Viñales, dance up a storm in Old Havana, and drink Mojitos with the locals in Santiago.
Have a road trip to remember
When the freedom of the open road calls head to Cuba for a trip with a difference. Road-signs will help guide your way around the country, and travelling at your own pace allows plenty of time for impromptu stops along the journey. Cruise along the palm-fringed coastal roads of Baracoa, navigate the dusty red tracks of Viñales and pass horse-drawn carts on the cobbled streets of Trinidad.
Cities with real soul
Cuba’s cities need to be seen to be believed. Old Havana, its crowning glory, is a spellbinding muddle of crumbling colonial mansions, shady plazas, cobbled streets and laundry-strewn balconies. Brightly coloured vintage Buicks line the pavements and salsa music drifts through the alleyways. It’s like a step back in time. Beyond Havana, Trinidad and Santiago are sensual, high-spirited cities where bands strike up in the streets and rowdy hole-in-the-wall rum bars stay open far into the night.
Given Cuba’s unique and incredible past, it’s not surprising that the locals have great stories to tell. The Cubans are good-hearted, bright-eyed and resilient people who will warmly welcome you into their homes. Staying in a family home (casa particular) is, hands down, the best way to meet local people and get a feel for Cuban hospitality. We can’t recommend it highly enough.
