Cuba – A Holiday With a Difference

Cuba – A Holiday With a Difference

Cuba is one of the most vibrant and unusual holiday destinations in the Caribbean if not the world. It’s faded fifties glories merge with it’s down to earth Central American laid back atmosphere to create a unique atmosphere. Combine this with the fact that Cuba has been a socialist nation for the best part of the last fifty years and you have a country like no other.

Home of the Rumba, Cuba is an ideal place to visit if live music is your thing. Cuban Jazz is prevalent throughout the streets of Havana and you are sure to come across some truly talented street musicians in the city. The night clubs are also famed for their hot, sweaty and electric atmospheres. Definitely not for the faint hearted!

Havana is the capital and home to over a quarter of the population of Cuba. The Spanish colonial architecture throughout the city is quite beautiful and with the stunning mountains as a backdrop, it truly is an awe inspiring sight.

Cuba’s warm climate is tempered by the pleasant winds that blow in from the sea. It makes for pleasant days and long balmy nights. Just perfect for wandering the streets and listening to some late night jazz.

Cuban cuisine is a mixture of Caribbean flavours combined with Spanish and American influences. Africa is also an influence and meals are commonly soups or stews eaten with rice.

In summary, Cuba is a fantastic holiday destination. The people here are happy and have a zest for life which expresses itself in their music and food. The beaches are delightful and a growing number of high quality hotels are continuing to spring up. Other options for visitors are a tour of a cigar factory (of which there are many), or a visit to a sugar cane or tobacco plantation.
