Travel Experts says young families will love Cuba holidays

Highly reccommending Cuba holidays to families with younger children and babies, Travel expert Corinne McDermott, the founder of Have Baby Will Travel - an online guide for parents travelling with babies, toddlers and young children said in her blog that Cuba is a special holiday destination highly suitable and appealing to the little ones, with glorious beaches, rugged countryside, beautiful architecture, and fascinating history for both adults and children to enjoy.

When expressing her delight about how friendly and accommodating Cubans are towards young families with small children travelling on Cuba holidays McDermott says "it was the warmth of the Cuban people that brought us back less than a year later. Everywhere we went, our daughter was fawned over and treated like a rock star"

"Even if they're not touted as 'family resorts', most of Cuba's beachfront properties welcome families with children of all ages. Our first hotel was the Barcélo Solymar in Varadero. A 5-minute-walk from town means you're not trapped in resort-land and the extra-gentle slope of the spectacular beach is perfect for babies to splash in", she wrote this month.

"The following year found us in Jibacoa - almost exactly halfway between Varadero and Havana. The Cameleon Villas Jibacoa is decidedly more rustic than the Solymar, but in beautiful, rural setting. We loved the cottage-y feel and the desserts that tasted like they were made by your newly adopted Cuban grandma", the specialist adds.

Also according to McDermott herself while Cuban holiday resorts are not renowned for fine dining both places she stayed in during her Cuba holidays had more than enough options to satisfy both parents and baby. "Your choices are more varied in a larger-scale or higher-star hotel", she described. "Visiting Cuba means bringing all your baby supplies from home, but the heavy luggage is a small price to pay for a safe, clean, economical, and family-embracing destination", she adviced.

Most Varadero all-inclusive resorts provide young families as well as travellers from all backgrounds, age groups and interests with plentiful dining options (some hotels do fare better than others) and while they may not be outstanding in variety they certainly are in local flair, charm and cuisine folklore, for the most authentic Cuba holidays to be enjoyed by the whole family, young and old!
