Cuba

Cuba’s political history and unique artistic flair make it one of the world’s most unique destinations. Top class resorts in Varadero and Holguin offer golden beaches from which to enjoy sun, relaxation and watersports in the Caribbean Sea. However, it is the capital Havana which holds the key to understanding more about this remarkable country. Watch the 1950s cars whizz past art deco buildings whilst you sup mojitos and listen to salsa and jazz music on the city’s boulevards. Alternatively, explore the dazzling array of art galleries, museums and the political iconography of Che Guevera and Castro brothers which are omnipresent throughout the city. There is also an increasingly impressive dining scene in Havana whilst the Latin flair of Cuba can be experienced through various fine arts festivals which take place in the city. Outside of Havana, the Cuban countryside is waiting to be explored, with the opportunity to bike through the lush sugarcane fields and watch tropical birds whilst admiring the mountain vistas of the interior.
