The culture of Cuba is calling… and here is your opportunity to awaken your sense of adventure and embrace all things Cuban. Combine a stay in Havana, one of the world’s most traditional and fascinating capital cities, before heading to Cuba’slush northern shores and rural Jibacoa. It’s time for some sand, sea and snorkel action.
The buzz in Havana is electric. The capital is known for its love of cocktails, cigars, classic cars and traditional Cuban music, so it’s easy to see why this city is a holiday hotspot.
Fly direct from London Heathrow twice a week (Sat/Tue) into Havana with Virgin Atlantic. On arrival transfer to your hotel.
Renting a car is a popular choice to see the sights here but we think the best way to explore the city is by foot. Why not spend your days wandering the streets that are lined with fascinating buildings and classic cars? Or enjoy a rum as you sit and sip with the locals along the Malecón seafront.
Transfer from Havana to Jibacoa.
Quieter than Varadero, the little fishing village of Jibacoa sits on a beach and is backed by lush green hills. This spot is perfect if you want to discover the Cuban rural life and because there is only one main hotel here finding a spot on the beach is easy-peasy.
The tempting shores of Jibacoa are just over an hour's drive from Havana, making it a popular spot for beach lovers and dive enthusiasts. Your hotel, Memories Jibacoa, has an on-site dive centre where you can dive and snorkel on its own coral reef, directly from the shore.
Transfer back to Havana Airport and pick up your direct flight back to London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic.
