Cuba

Rum, revolutionaries and salsa rhythms: Cuba’s allure is impossible to resist

Adventure Holidays in Cuba

With a quixotic blend of revolutionary history, irresistible salsa sounds, vintage cars, white sand beaches and crumbling colonial beauty, Cuba it’s as captivating as it is contradictory.

With live music on every corner, Cubans know how to party and the country is infused with warmth and hospitality. Explore the Havana’s steamy cellar bars and tango houses; head to Viñales, a pretty sleepy town situated int he fertile rolling countryside where they produce tobacco for Cuba’s famous cigars; and Trinidad, a UNESCO world heritage site known for its salsa, cobbled streets, and coloured houses. Of course there are museums here, but better to keep your eyes peeled as 1950s cars rattle alongside the sweeping coastline and crumbling colonial mansions.

But your time is now. For the clock of commercialism is ticking, and the the faded, time-warped naivety that has made it so special is not likely to last much longer…

Cuba’s Top Adventure Holiday Experiences

1. Havana

Photogenic, atmospheric and unique, in Havana drum beats, the sounds of strumming guitars and the buzz of local life fill every street. Drink in the splendour of the colonial buildings, the sights and sounds of everyday living and sip a fresh mint mojito as Havana works its charm on you.

2. Caribbean beach life

Crystalline waters, palm-fringed beaches and Caribbean tranquillity are to be found everywhere along Cuba’s coastline. Visit ever-popular Varadero and beautiful Cayo Saetia, until recently the restricted private reserve of high ranking communist officials. And with Exodus you’ll discover the lesser-known beaches of Baracoa.

3. The history of Santiago de Cuba

The stage for the most important events of the revolutionary struggle makes almost every street corner of this city famous. It also holds on to clear musical routes with a hedonistic carnival every July - and the streets are alive pretty much every other night of the year, too.

4. Trinidad

This is a UNESCO world heritage site awash with perfectly preserved cobbled streets, pretty churches and grand colonial mansions with painted shutters. There are tons of great museums here, but be sure to save some of your sightseeing energy to hit the bars, music clubs and street parties at night.

5. Walking and nature

Cuba's unvisited western province, Pinar del Río is a paradise for walking holidays, bird watching and opportunities to discover tropical plants, visit small private farms and working plantations. There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby, too.

6. Cycling Cuba

Few Cubans are able to afford cars so roads are surprisingly empty, perfect for exploring on two wheels. Cycling here gives you an undeniable sense of freedom, and allows you closer to the action than anyone else.
