Regions

Jibacoa

Jibacoa has one of those beaches that you can rock up to and never leave. There's a coral reef nearby, stretches of sand, and not much else, just the way relaxation-seekers like it. Once you're ready to dial up the heat, Varadero and Havana are just on the horizon.

Havana

A holiday to Havana is a cacophony of sound and vision, with Cuban guitar, brightly painted buildings, grand produce markets and beautiful beaches. A trip to Cuba's capital city is about more than just cigars and rum, as this picturesque city is full of history, culture and nightlife just waiting for you to explore.

Guardalavaca

Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful spots to visit on Cuba holidays, sweeping white sands meet fluorescent blue Caribbean ocean at this chilled out resort on the Cuban coast. Spend sunny days on the shoreline and idyllic evenings sipping mojitos along the waterfront.

Cayo Santa Maria

This little peninsula is a holiday force to be reckoned with, home to 13 kilometres of coastline and some seriously gorgeous All Inclusive resorts. Days here on a holiday to Cuba are spent meeting the local wildlife, hopping from spa treatment to poolside and sunning yourself on white sand shores.

Cayo Coco

With pristine white sand beaches that stretch for miles and gently slope into fluorescent tranquil water, a holiday to Cayo Coco offers the feel of a deserted island with all the modern amenities. From boat trips to spa retreats and interesting night spots, it's an intriguing and relaxing location for anyone considering a holiday to Cuba.

Cayo Guillermo

With the Atlantic Ocean lapping the shores of fine sandy beaches, Cayo Guillermo is part of a small and tranquil archipelago off the coast of Cuba. It's what you'd expect the perfect Caribbean destination to look like – white beaches, lush greenery and exotic birds – and it's easy to see why this is such a popular spot with people planning Cuba holidays.

Varadero

Gorgeous beaches aren't Varadero's only draw, as it comes prepared with a vibrant town, outdoor adventures and a whole lot of nightlife to match. For a town covering only a little sliver of land, come here on your Cuba holidays and you'll wonder how it managed to pack so much personality in.

Lose yourself in Havana

Today, Havana is an all–consuming metropolis of two million inhabitants and one of the most fascinating cities on the planet. Old Havana is a living, breathing piece of history and all the images you previously held of brightly coloured, paint peeled buildings with locals sitting in doorways smoking cigars become a reality.

Wander around the famous Necropolis Cristobal Colon – one of the largest cemeteries in the Americas – and gaze upon elaborate marble statues amid the graves of famous revolutionaries, scientists and authors. If that’s not your thing, head to the beautifully constructed cathedral and enjoy a drink at Bodeguita Del Medio, one of Hemingway and Nat King Cole’s old watering holes.

Best beaches

Cuba’s number one beach resort, Varadero, is located on the north coast and just a two hour drive east of Havana. A popular choice with those booking All Inclusive holidays in Cuba, Here you’ll find over 20 kilometres of pristine white sand beaches, 4* and 5* star resorts boasting world–class service and elegant cocktail bars overlooking the emerald sea.

Down in the south, Playa Ancon offers even more pristine coastline but has managed to keep a natural feel with palm trees and greenery creeping down to the sand. You’ll find great snorkelling and diving sites off the shoreline here, which is ideally located just outside the colonial UNESCO city of Trinidad.

A taste of Trinidad

To experience the slower pace of Cuba, be sure to head to the quaint cobbled streets of Trinidad. This UNESCO treasure is like an outdoor museum with its perfectly preserved Spanish colonial buildings. Head to the Plaza Mayor to experience the gentle hospitality of the locals or enjoy an ice-cold mojito in one of the bars lining the square.

Spend days here lazing on the long stretches of white sand or bobbing along to the obligatory salsa music. The surrounding mountainous region also makes for great hiking and horse riding. One of the most popular destinations is the Salto del Caburni waterfalls, where after an hour’s hiking over wooded terrain, you’re free to enjoy a refreshing dip in the natural pools.

Salsa in Santiago

Home to the traditional rhythms that gave birth to salsa music, Santiago is the second biggest city in Cuba. Nestled in the southeast of the island, this city has a totally different feel to Havana with a distinct African–Caribbean influence and fast paced, narrow streets bustling with people and cars.

Jump on a bus to Castillo del Morro, located at the city’s harbour, and explore this historic fort and castle complete with moats and working cannons. Once back in the centre, wander around important historical sites such as the Moncada Barracks and Revolution Plaza and dance your way into the night.

Explore breathtaking national parks

Cuba has its fair share of national parks which are dotted all over the island. Each offer their own individual canvas of forests, beaches, lagoons and caves to explore, with the added opportunity to visit working coffee and tobacco plantations.

Valle de Vinales National Park sits in the west of the island and is one of Cuba’s most breathtaking settings. Having gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 1999 for its dramatically isolated steep-sided residual hills, the park can be explored by foot or on horseback.
