Cuba is a fascinating destination, where over 300 breath-taking beaches and bright blue seas contrast with faded glamour, crumbling architecture, rhythmic maracas and vintage Cadillacs.
The capital city of Havana is dusty, busy and ramshackle, but that is all part of its charm. You can walk the Spanish Colonial quarters cobbled streets, people watch on Havana’s oldest square, La Plaza de Armas, experience Cuban cuisine in a ‘paladar’ (a private family-run restaurant), cruise in an old American Car along the ocean front and visit the old haunts of Ernest Hemingway, where he wrote some of his most famous novels.
Havana is home to dilapidated buildings that lie alongside beautifully restored colonial homes and 20th century high rises from a more austere age. The Malecon, a four-mile-long esplanade and seawall, stretching from the Castillo de San Salvador de la Punta to the Almendares River, is lined with shops, restaurants and colourful buildings.
About an hour and a half from Havana is Varadero, Cuba’s most popular beach destination. It features 12 miles of beautiful sandy beaches with a wide range of activities and non-motorised water sports. It boasts some fantastic all-inclusive hotels to suit both couples and families. Varadero is also a haven for divers with over 28 spectacular dive sites accessible from the beach and a stunning array of underwater flora and fauna.
Founded by the Spanish colonists in the early 1500s, the intimate city of Trinidad is believed by many to be the finest example of a colonial city throughout the entire Caribbean. Cobbled streets are lined with pastel coloured houses whilst the beautiful plazas are overlooked by striking 18th and 19th century buildings.
The Cayos, made up of many idyllic islands and situated on Cuba’s northern coast, are also perfect for a relaxing holiday or as an end to a busy tour of Cuba.
