Introduction to Cuba

Cuba offers a unique and heady cocktail of experiences, blending beautiful white beaches, a wealth of well-preserved Spanish colonial architecture and the effervescence and sparkle of its music and people. Havana has a wealth to explore with Spanish, Moorish, Italian, Greek and even Roman architecture lining the streets and squares of the Old Town.

An extended stay in Havana allows time to also visit the unique natural beauty of nearby Pinar del Rio, whilst Trinidad offers a living museum of preserved squares and colonial houses. Culminating on the beautiful island of Cayo Santa Maria, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, development is modest in comparison to other resorts.

Accommodation is often limited and simple in Cuba, however we have been fortunate enough to secure space, at a favourable rate, with Iberostar hotels in Havana, Trinidad and Cayo Santa Maria, allowing for a tour of the island whilst staying in some of Cuba’s best accommodation. Due to the popularity of these hotels, space is limited so early booking is highly recommended.
