Holidays to Cuba Cuba

Being the biggest island in the Caribbean, Cuba offers everything you’d associate with this gorgeous little corner of the world: sea, sun, sand and a laid back vibe.

A holiday in Cuba is like no other you will have experienced. There’s something very different about Cuba, something that sets it apart. Maybe it’s the island’s extraordinary history, its political system, its decades of self-sufficiency in the face of global controversy, its unique Afro-Latin culture - whatever it is, it certainly makes Cuba one of the most intriguing holiday destinations in the world.

A holiday in Cuba is like no other you will have experienced. There’s something very different about Cuba, something that sets it apart. Maybe it’s the island’s extraordinary history, its political system, its decades of self-sufficiency in the face of global controversy, its unique Afro-Latin culture - whatever it is, it certainly makes Cuba one of the most intriguing holiday destinations in the world.

Cuba holidays are certain to make you see things from a different perspective. You’ll find yourself asking questions like: how do those ancient 1950s American cars still run? How is it that the corner shop that was empty of stock yesterday is full today? Daily life in Cuba has an unsettling randomness about it that is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. The key to a great holiday is to embrace the Cubans’ nonchalant attitude, fire up a genuine Havana cigar, order another rum cocktail and let the relaxed atmosphere wash over you.

Eating out

Influenced by many cultures - Cuban cuisine is extremely diverse! For lunch, try a meat or cheese empanada, a type of Cuban sandwich and very delicious! Mojitos by the poolside are another must, made with lime juice and pure cane rum. In fact, Cuba is known as 'Rum Island' so book a visit to the Bacardi® Rum Factory for a free tasting!

All-inclusive holiday packages are very popular in Cuba, and you’ll find some really great resorts on the island. An increasing number of resorts are now offering all-inclusive packages...with a twist. Because Cuba is mostly self-sufficient, you’ll enjoy authentic local food and drink in place of the rather unimaginative international brands we’re used to elsewhere.

Local Living

Small beer - £1.00
Can of coke - £1.00
Loaf of bread - £1.50
Bottle of wine - £7.50
The above are approx local supermarket costs.

Best for couples

Cuba is the birthplace of salsa – you are sure to have heard of it even if you haven’t tried it. Salsa music is a huge part of Cuban culture, and the island is alive with its vibrant spirit. Sample it all, whether you’re listening to an ancient valve radio in a sidewalk cafe or enjoying the music firsthand at a live performance, immerse yourself and live ‘la vida dulce’!

Weddings/Honeymoons

The glorious beaches of Varadero and Jibacoa are picture-perfect locations for a sunny wedding, honeymoon or both. Cuba is the Caribbean island with a twist: enjoy the unique Afro-Latino culture and its famously addictive music and by the end of your stay, you should be salsa experts! Be sure to visit the capital, Havana – the faded grandeur of its colonial buildings is alluringly romantic.

Something different

One of the most impressive features of a Cuban holiday is the fantastic historic architecture you’ll find tucked away in neighbourhoods and villages all over the island. From beautiful colonial buildings to the haunting, faded splendour of the capital city of Havana, holidays in Cuba offer the opportunity to see some of the best Spanish colonial architecture anywhere - much of it has remained untouched since it was built! Take a stroll down Havana’s Calle Obispo and marvel at the old-fashioned shop windows and quaint cafes. Keep going until you reach Plaza de Armas, which features many fine old buildings. Be sure to visit Castillo de la Punta and Cuba’s oldest building, Castillo de la Real Fuerza.

Seeking adventure

See the expert's hand-rolling world-famous Havana cigars at one of the many cigar factories - you may even get to roll your own!

Sight Seeing Ideas

A fascinating country with a fascinating history, Cuba is simply bursting with character. Uniquely self-sufficient as an island, with friendly, laid back people offering a warm welcome. The faded grandeur of Havana's colonial buildings will charm as will the local penchant for big old 195's American cars, inspiring nostalgia for a bygone age.

Total flexibility

Cuba has so much to offer, why not do both and combine a stay in the colourful capital of Havana with a relaxing beachfront holiday in Varadero. Varadero, Cuba’s most famous seaside destination. Here you’ll find pristine white sands and perfectly clear water. A quick trip to the untouched island of Cayo Santa Maria offers a more peaceful beach experience. If diving and snorkelling are on your holiday agenda, head out to the coral reefs just off Guardalavaca.
