Classic cars, cigars, music, dance, rum, colonial attractions, wildlife habitats and amazing natural beauty — just some of the reasons to visit Cuba.

Cuba is one of the hottest destinations in the Caribbean region.

With an abundance of cultural and scenic attractions plus a rich, intoxicating arts and music scene, Cuba has experienced an influx of tourists since its previously tense relationship with the US softened in 2015, ushering in an exciting new era for both local business owners and tourists.

Havana, the dilapidated capital of Cuba, bursts with an energy all its own: vintage Cadillacs cruise past brightly coloured pastel houses, while music and salsa dancing can be found around every corner. The cobbled old town oozes colonial-era charm, though this is by no means specific to Havana. Cienfuegos and Trinidad have quickly become travellers’ favourites thanks to stunning architecture, white-sand beaches and an authenticity that’s been lost in traditionally popular destinations.

If Cuba’s cities are a step back in time, the rural regions are a giant leap. Vinales, in the heart of Cuba’s tobacco-growing region, is a Jurassic Park-like wonderland where limestone hills jut out of the verdant, green landscape and locals puff cigars on wooden porches. Whether you’re exploring the 17th-century streets of Havana, relaxing on Trinidad’s beaches or soaking up a rural sunset in Vinales, know that you’re experiencing a special time in Cuba. This is the land that seduced Hemingway, an inimitable destination that thrums with life and possibility.
