Cuba is the largest Caribbean island, between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. It lies 145 km south of Key West, Florida, between the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas, to the west of Haiti, and northwest of Jamaica. Immaculate beaches, lush green hills, dramatic rainforests and waterfalls; imposing mountain ranges, vibrant cities steeped in history and a defiant Revolutionary chic; the island of Cuba can rightfully claim to be one of the most unique getaways on earth. Cuba has been somewhat time warped by its socialist revolution of 1959, and that, combined with the decadence and corruption of previous regimes has made it a sunshine isle of stark contrasts. Vintage American cars roar through the streets of Havana. Horses and carts carrying water and food stumble through the countryside. Graphic revolutionary insignia adorn walls just yards from a decadent colonial palace.
The enthralling capital Havana is the best example of this debauched luxury mixed with the dilapidated. Here, the historic and beautiful areas of the Old Town rub shoulders with the run down (but full of character) districts inhabited by regular Cubans. This juxtaposition helps establish the unique charm of Havana and with the vibrant Cubano culture of salsa rhythms, uninhibited dancing, hearty food and sparkling cocktails, it all results in one enthralling and authentic urban experience that is truly like no other. Santiago de Cuba, The second biggest city after Havana on the island, is a melting pot of Afro-Caribbean cultures and a city central to Cuba’s political and artistic history, Santiago de Cuba is an incredibly lively and colourful place. While the world famous cocktails may surpass the hearty but occasionally limited food and the travelling around might be slightly more difficult than elsewhere in the Caribbean, Cuba more than makes up for this with its stunning climate, captivating history, generous charm and swinging salsa rhythms.
