Crumbling colonial architecture, a unique culture and a breathtaking coastline combine to create a Caribbean island like no other
Enthralling, atmospheric and complex are just a few words to describe Cuba. As a former Spanish colony, a pre-revolutionary playground for the rich and famous and the last bastion of world communism, the Caribbean’s largest island has a distinctive character. Here, you’ll need to leave your regular Caribbean expectations at the airport, switch off from the Western world and take it as it comes.
Enjoy the simple things in life as you wander around one of the island’s remarkable cities. Meet the locals, dance the salsa and embrace the rhythmic and intoxicating atmosphere. Follow in the footsteps of iconic revolutionaries and great novelists, head east to a land that time seemingly forgot, or simply retreat to your own stretch of soft white sand. This is a destination for travellers with an adventurous soul, a ‘ready for anything’ outlook and a desire to explore a country that’s so different from our own.
