Discover pristine coastlines and intriguing cities on this exotic Caribbean isle
Lean back in your 57 Cadillac and glide past crumbling Baroque mansions. Or stand opposite the image of Che Guevara, in the Plaza de la Revolucion, where Fidel Castro inspired a nation and feel Cuba. Walk streets that wind between beautifully dilapidated colonial mansions.
Take the time to talk to the people who will inevitably approach you; each with their own, disarmingly charming way of asking for a dollar. Tour Havana’s famous cigar factory where local women roll cigars with the flick of a hand. Sit in one of Havana’s tree-lined parks in the evening as the locals gather to discuss the day, politics, baseball. Take impromptu salsa lessons in a public square. See world class ballet.
Do any of these things, and you’ll feel the magic of Cuba.
Talk to Dave Batley who has travelled around Cuba, why not let him create you a tailor-made itinerary to help you make the most of it. he will arrange for you to eat in private restaurants like La Guarida, serving the most enticing local food on the island. And afterwards you can seek out bars that pulse with the rhythms of Son and Mambo, clubs where the dancing is hot and the mojitos are ice cold.
Travel to Cuba
With an unprecedented numbers of visitors now travelling to Cuba, hotels get booked up far in advance. We highly recommend that if you wish to travel to Cuba you book early to avoid disappointment. Prices are beginning to reflect the fact that demand for accommodation on the island is starting to outstrip supply, and due to the nation’s undeveloped infrastructure the standards of accommodation are not always up to the standard you might expect elsewhere in the Caribbean.
