About Cuba

Best of Cuba Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Havana

With music in the air, crumbling colonial buildings, iconic 50s cars and a unique and often chequered history, Havana always rolls to its own fabulous beat.

Day 3 Cienfuegos

A delightful city referred to as the 'Pearl of the South', Cienfuegos was designed beautifully by the French but emits a definite Caribbean vibe.

Days 4-6 Trinidad

Colourful houses, cobblestone streets, wonderful people, great food and breathtaking vistas over cerulean seas make Trinidad a firm favourite among visitors.

Days 7-8 Camaguey

Built to stop ongoing raids by pirates, the maze-like streets of Camaguey are slightly confusing, but nevertheless an amazing place of colour, culture and discovery.

Days 9-10 Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba has a revolutionary history and an exciting mix of cultures, which results in a vibrancy in the air and an artistic flair in the streets.

Days 11-13 Baracoa

Remote, unique and arguably one of the most beautiful places in Cuba, Baracoa has a wealth of natural gems to discover and swoon over.

Days 14-15 Havana

Havana has a tenacity that has seen it through 500 years of ups and downs, along with an infectious love of music, food and life in general.
