A kaleidoscope of gorgeous beaches, beckoning mountains, pastel-coloured colonial architecture and vintage cars, intertwined with rum-fuelled salsa dancing, a fascinating history, perfectly preserved marinas and a glittering coastline to rival that of California, Cuba is quite simply, one of a kind. Culturally, Cuba is an extraordinarily distinct country. Its Afro-Latin musical heritage, mixed ethnic populations, remnants from its colonial past and its bold artwork demonstrating its political present, blend seamlessly into one of the most unique settings in the Caribbean.
With the Cuban tourist industry enjoying a long-awaited high, since the introduction of Raúl Castro’s more open business policies, there has never been a better time to see this Caribbean gem and discover all this island has to offer. Cuba is truly a country that needs to be experienced rather than visited, so lose yourself in the rhythm of the Son drum, inhale the aromas of Cuban coffee and tobacco, savour the flavours of Cuban rum, feel the heat of the Caribbean sun, absorb the vivacity of Cuban culture and witness the splendour of the country’s exquisite scenery.
