About Cuba

Cuba is one of the last vestiges of an old world nearly forgotten by our age of technology and consumerism. The island is full of dilapidated dignity with crumbling grandeur pointing to a historic past and heritage. One of the world's last remaining Marxist-Leninist states, Cuba brims with character and charm. Mixing magnificent cities like Havanna with stunning natural surroundings, Cuba is perfect for exploring. Our selection of the best places to stay in Cuba blends the old with the new, ranging from plush beachside resorts to decadent old palaces.

Things not to miss

  • Havana is like a treasure chest for any traveller with so much to do and see. Rumble through the streets of old Havana, visit the Necropolis Cristobal Colon, the Museo de la Revolucion and generally just absorb the fascinating atmosphere of this magical city.
  • Visit the UNESCO Castillo de San Pedro de la Rocco del Morro, a stunning fort near Santiago.
  • If you are in search of beaches head for Cayo Largo's Playa Sirena with powdery white sands.
  • Cuba rewards people who go off the beaten track, so why not try a hiking trip on one of the country's famous revolutionary trails such as Vinales.
  • If climbing is your thing, don't miss out on ascending Cuba's tallest mountain, Piqo Turcino with it's relentlessly steep path and abundant natural beauty.
  • Cuba has some great dive spots such as Cayo Levisa and Maria la Gorda.

Any trip to Cuba is always an adventure. Our selection of the best places to stay in Cuba are perfect launchpads for such an adventure.
