As if untouched by time, Cuba is a hotbed of retro cool, amazing beaches, and rich cuisine – making it a perfect holiday destination all year round. Those wanting to delve into the country;s culture will find Havana the place to be, while those wanting a relaxing week or two on the beach will find resorts like Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa María a perfect foil.
Whether you’re into beach holidays or city breaks, Cuba is a country with so much to offer in both respects. If city stylings are what you’re into, Havana simply needs to be the first stop. A Havana holiday gives visitors a crash course in all things Cuban, introducing the food, drinks, and general atmosphere as soon as you step foot in the vibrant city. Old Havana is the hub where music seems to ruminate throughout the quirky streets.
Nightclubs, jazz clubs, and nostalgic cabaret shows are commonplace throughout and each of them offer a unique entry point into the city and its citizens. Open air cafés are a popular part of the city and you’ll often find people sat outside enjoying a café Cubano, an espresso mixed with sugar, or a cortadito, an espresso topped with steamed milk. Popular cafés are Sofia Restaurant, which even offers live music in the evening.
Away from the city, you’ll find numerous beach resorts perfect for a relaxing beach holiday in Cuba. White sand beaches are commonplace in Cuba and there are numerous places to lay your towel as you work on your tan. Cayo Coco is a popular choice in the country and its 22 kilometre stretch of Playa Los Flamencos is its crowning jewel. Effortlessly drawing in swathes of tourists, it’s pretty enough for any postcard. Cayo Santa María is another favourite for a Cuban beach holiday. Set around small islets on the northern coast, the turquoise waters and mangroves create a tropical feel quite unlike anywhere else. These resorts are the perfect place for a relaxing all-inclusive holiday.
