CUBA

The largest island in the Caribbean and situated just 90 miles south of Florida, Cuba boasts spectacular scenery and a rich cultural heritage as
well as some of the world's best beaches with miles of soft white sand lapped by clear warm waters Steeped in the history of Spanish colonialism and
post war revolution, the grandeur of Cuba's rich history can be experienced in the vibrant UNESCO preserved city of Havana d which is a living
museum of days gone by. Meet the people vivacious and passionate; feel the rhythm of the Cuban music, the mambo and the cha cha. We recommend
a visit to Cienfugeos, famous for its Fort and its combination of French and Spanish architecture.  It is  located approximately 4 hours drive from
Havana.  If you want to take the time to relax on a beach, Varadero Beach is approximately 2 hours drive from Havana..
.....Cuba is waiting to be explored!

Pearl of the Caribbean

 



Defying all logic, the world's 105th-largest country is also one of its most instantly recognisable. Think psychedelic Che Guevara murals and
antediluvian American Buicks, dudes with bongos and old men slapping down dominoes, queues outside ration shops and communist cadres
smoking chunky Montecristos. Cuba has a way of going against the grain. It's all part of its historical make-up, part of its dynamism, part of its
intrinsic beauty.


Havana
Havana is the capital of the country and almost from their foundation in 1519 the city became the main commercial, economic and communication
centre due to their favoured location in front of the Strait of Florida and to their magnifies bay.

Havana is the main square for tourism in the island today, supported in its centennial history, in the existence of beaches of magnifies quality, an
incredible cultural where is highlights the colonial centre of Old Havana and its mixture of architectural styles. Also the city has a powerful tourist
infrastructure with more of 10000 rooms in hotels and inns and hundreds at private homes, the best and more famous restaurants and palates of the
country, dozens of night clubs, discos and other night centers as the famous cabaret Tropicana, marines and facilities for all type of sports, golf
fields, around 30 museums, 10 art galleries and near 20 theaters that make it, also, the cultural centre of the country..

Old Havana
Old Havana is the maximum exponent of the colonial architecture in the island and in the whole Caribbean. Located in the riverbank west of
 the bay of Havana and with 3.2 km (2.0 miles) in the axis north-south and 1.6 km (1.0 miles) in the axis east-west, it is
the biggest colonial centre in the Caribbean.

Declared as Patrimony of the Humanity by UNESCO in 1982 with the objective of preserving their architecture and their historical inheritance,
Old Havana stores in its environment many of more beautiful and important squares, buildings, historical monuments, museums and forts of the
colonial time of the island, as well as some of their more famous restaurants and hotels (e.g. La Bodeguita del Medio, El Floridita, Both Worlds hotel).
