The Caribbean's largest, most diverse and exciting island

Ask someone why they are going on holiday to Cuba and you will soon discover that the Caribbean’s largest island means different things to different people.

For many, Cuba is all about the beach, the beach and nothing but the beach while others are drawn to the island’s countryside, history, architecture, politics, music, cars, cigars, dance, music, literature, rum and glorious lack of commercialisation.

Although Cuba lacks any tangible reminders of its indigenous, Taino settlers, the island’s more recent history certainly packs a punch.

Once one of the most prized possessions in Spain’s sprawling, colonial empire, reminders of this era abound in Cuba’s beautiful towns and cities, such as Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Camaguey, Santa Clara, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa, many of them now UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Most famous of these is of course, Havana, the island’s capital and a city that never fails to enchant, excite and energise in equal measure.

While Cuba’s colonial history has left a wonderful cultural and architectural legacy, the island’s more recent storyline of revolution and communism has also left its own, equally fascinating mark and, all be it inadvertently, protected the island from sum of the less appealing side effects of progress.

In addition to its countless, stunning beaches, Cuba is also home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the Caribbean, such as the famous limestone mogotes of the Vinales Valley, the mangrove swamps of the Zapata Peninsula and the mountain scenery of the Escambray Mountains and Sierra Maestre.

With the sole exception of our small group escorted tours, all our holidays to Cuba are entirely flexible and can be tailor made to your exact requirements. As such, there are many thousands upon thousands of different itineraries that we can arrange.
