The largest and perhaps most intriguing of the Caribbean islands, Cuba is a unique place, perfect for the intrepid adventurer, where time-stood-still heritage has been captured for all to see.
Where to stay in Cuba
Varadero offers golden sands, blue ocean and every kind of holiday accommodation and diversion you could wish for all located on a narrow peninsula that curls into the Straits of Florida.
Havana is never still and exudes energy and passion just as readily as a bar tender mixing the last Mojito of the evening.
Jibacoa is close to historic Havana City and Varadero Beach for interesting days out, but lazing around the pool is also an appealing option!
