You really shouldn’t come to Cuba and not experience Havana — this lively capital has to be seen to be believed. Four nights is plenty of time to appreciate the city. Whilst you are here why not take the time to learn some salsa steps, because the music really takes over. The beat of Cuba flows through the country as much as the rum does! Next, it’s on to Varadero where you can rest up and recharge in this enticing beach resort.
Havana is popular with visitors, and for good reason. Full of major historic and cultural sights, you can't help but soak up the intoxicating Cuban spirit of this enriching capital.
