Cigars, classic cars and Caribbean charms

Cuba is the largest Caribbean island and it’s filled with flair, grandiosity and lively rhythms. From the colourful classic American cars to its cobbled city streets and quirky architecture, you’ll find plenty of character here. Join the locals in enjoying Havana’s local music scene; son and salsa are like a secondary means of communication here. 

The atmosphere of Havana is infectious, but make sure you take some time to get out of the city and away to explore the beautiful Caribbean beaches. While there are plenty where you can share the shoreline with other tourists, head to the Península de Guanahacabibes for a quieter experience. Swim in the turquoise waters of Cayo Jutías, arguably one of the most stunning of Cuba’s beaches, then grab yourself a mojito and watch the sun go down. 

There are many more incredible experiences to be had in Cuba, whether you’re a wildlife warrior, a sunset chaser, or an outdoor junkie. Chat to one of our expert travel consultants about planning your holiday to Cuba today, and they’ll be able to tailor an itinerary to match your needs.

Tips and advice from our travel advisors

A visit to Cuba would not be complete without experiencing the grandeur of the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. Located in the centre of Havana, it stands on a hill just a few meters from the sea, offering great views of the Havana Harbour, the seawall and the city. Enjoy a Mojito Cocktail in the gardens before taking in a show. You may even be lucky enough to see guests from the Buena Vista Social Club perform.
