What to do in Cuba
Watersports: Kayak, fish and sail in Cuba's calm waters, swim with dolphins, windsurf in the trade winds or scuba dive in spectacular marine parks, like the ones found in Maria La Gorda, Jardines de la Reina and Jardines del Rey. The brilliant blue waters of the Caribbean are ideal for both beginners and more experienced divers.
Adventure and wildlife: Hike, horseback ride or rock climb in national parks and mountain ranges, or discover hundreds of species of birds, animals and plants in Cuba's beautiful nature reserves, including the UNESCO World Heritage Reserve at Vinales Valley and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at Cienaga de Zapata. The diversity of landscapes and nature inspire and enthral in equal measure, especially the Escambray and famous Sierra Maestra mountain ranges.
Nightlife: Music and dancing come as standard throughout Cuba. Expect live music coming from virtually every corner in the streets of Old Havana and go for unique shows like the Tropicana cabaret in Havana to get a real feel of Cuba's exotic dances and rhythms. In the popular beach resorts you'll find more discos, nightclubs and dancing lessons, as well as shows under starry skies on desert islands retreats.
Beach life: White sands and turquoise waters characterise Cuba's beaches, making idyllic sunbathing spots easy to find. Whether it's in popular beach resorts, city shorelines or nearly deserted islets and keys off the mainland coast, it's hard to find a better place in the world to catch some rays.
History: History marks the daily life of Cubans, with figures of the revolution ever present. To fully appreciate the past, visit sites such as the Revolution Square in Havana, the Bay of Pigs in Playa Giron, Che Guevara's burial site in Santa Clara and Trinidad's quaint colonial streets.
Culture: Lovers of jazz will succumb to the hypnotising tunes of saxophones, trombones, trumpets and piano in Cuba's sensual jazz clubs, such as the famed La Zorra y El Cuervo and The Jazz Cafe, both in the Vedado district of Havana. Salsa lovers will find a myriad of dancing venues, with teachers on hand to help you learn the steps. And a visit to Cuba's cigar and rum factories will add flavour to any trip. We can customise any kind of cultural encounter you wish to find in Cuba, from salsa lessons and dancing experiences to excursions to places of interest – just ask us at any time prior to your travelling date or during your trip and our Cuban representatives will have it organised in no time!
