Cuba


Cuba is a mythical island, a preserved country where time seems to have stopped in the 1950’s. To visit Cuba is to meet its warm population, find out the origins of salsa, wonder at collector’s cars or get tanned on its heaven-like beaches.



1-VARADERO'S HEAVENLY BEACHES

The island’s coast offers beautiful natural sites, with large beaches of fine white sand. Among the most popular ones is Varadero, in the North.

3-CUBAN CIGARS AND RUM

Cuba’s most famous specialties are no doubt rum and cigars. You can visit Havana Club’s museum of rum and cigar factories in several neighbourhoods of Havana.

5-BARACOA AND ITS FASCINATING NATURE

The first Cuban city, built in 1511, is located in a splendid natural setting by the seaside.

7-SANTIAGO DE CUBA: THE CRADDLE OF THE REVOLUTION

The capital of Oriente province, the cradle of the revolution, is also known for its carnival. It will please those who like colonial cities.

9-VINALES: THE VALLEY OF TOBACCO

It is famous for its unique rock formations (mogotes) and traditional agriculture, including tobacco. It would be a shame to leave Cuba without visiting a cigar factory in the region of Viñales.

2-HAVANA AND ITS UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE

Havana represents the very soul of Cuba, and it is appreciated for its retro style. El Capitolio and the Gran Teatro are two beautiful must-sees.

4-DANCE TO THE ENCHANTING RHYTM OF CUBAN MUSIC

Cuban people’s sense of celebration is worth the trip. Experience salsa in the casas de la música.

6-CAMAGUEY:THE CITY OF CHURCHES

Camagüey is a charming town. Take a stroll through the lovely narrow streets of its colonial city-center.

8-TRINIDAD: A CUBAN STROLL

The city of Trinidad is to be visited slowly, getting lost in its cobbled streets and low pastel-coloured houses.

10-TAKE A RIDE IN AN AMERICAN CAR

Hard to resist a ride in an old American car in Havana. Once you’re in the Parque Central, it won’t be long before somebody offers you a ride along the Malecón.
