Cuba is an incredible destination with the impressive colonial architecture of Havana, a relaxed atmosphere and rumba rhythms.
Like nowhere else
you have ever visited, Cuba is famous for its salsa dancing,
mojitos and cigars but it's so much more than a friendly tropical
island. Cubans have a strong love for life, a passion for music and
socialising that is contagious. If you don't know how to dance when
you arrive, you certainly will by the time you leave. Adapting to
the Cuban way of life is one of the pleasures of visiting the
country and continues to enthral travellers.
A taste of Cuba
• Cubans enjoy their nightlife, from local salsa to simply
catching up with friends
• Bars in Havana are well known for their thriving music
• Varadero has plenty of bars and restaurants offering local
• Guardalavaca has a much slower more relaxed pace, so eating out
and nightlife is limited and based around the hotels.
