Cuba tailor-made holidays
Cuba is brazen and beautiful, daring and decisive - and surely one of the world's most recognisable countries, its influence stretching far beyond the Caribbean. Whether it's Cuba's revolutionary politics, recalled in the gaze of Che Guevara, or its fizzling culture – the syncopated rhythms of Afro-Cuban jazz, the drifting smoke of the world's best cigars, the spicy rum and the carnivals it fuels – Cuba is a truly refreshing destination.
This complex and colourful nation comprises Caribbean's largest island and there is great variety across the land. For some visitors it's the fine old colonial streets of Trinidad and the son music of Santiago that form the basis of their Cuba travels.
For others is the rich greenery of the Viñales Valley, the stretching beaches of Cayo Santa Maria and Varadero or the political iconography on the streets and buildings of the energetic capital, Havana. Cadillacs and horse drawn carts, pulsating dance floors and silently swinging hammocks are other evocative images of the country, but there are plenty more besides. This is a multi-faceted and vibrant Caribbean destination and holidays here are always invigorating, always intriguing, always entertaining.
