DESTINATION CUBA

Varadero has to have one of the finest beaches in the entire Caribbean. Although large resort hotels now line the shore, the beaches are so expansive that they will very seldom be crowded. And what beaches! No need to search for the perfect spot, since Varadero is located on on 20 kms of white powdery sand that makes up the Peninsula de Hicacos. Naturally watersports are a key ingredient of your holiday, and most hotels offer a wide range of activities.

The largest city and capital of Cuba, Havana offers a glimpse into the past. Many of the Colonial Spanish buildings in Havana have undergone restoration, and in Old Havana the cobbled squares and colonnades reflect the city's ancient heritage. Stroll along the Maleçon, the two-mile promenade along the seafront or visit El Morro, a typical Spanish fort which dates from the 16th century.
Since the U.S. embargo of the island, Cubans have not been able to buy cars, the only new ones are rentals for tourists, so the streets of Havana are full of vintage models from the fifties, replete with grills, fins and acres of chrome, lovingly maintained and nursed along by their proud owners.
Don't miss the 18th-century baroque cathedral. A somewhat unusual tourist attraction is the Cristóbal Colón cemetery, an amazingly intricate vista of ornate monuments and headstones which is a great photo opportunity. Hemingway fans won't want to miss the Bodeguita del Medio, home of the mojito and a million autographs all over the walls and ceilings.


Cubans have a love affair with music, and you will find many dance clubs in Havana where the salsa beat throbs out into the night. The famous El Tropicana nightclub is well worth a visit, with its showgirls and elaborate costumes.

The “mojito” – a unique combination of sugar, fresh mint, soda water, lime juice and rum – is a refreshing drink in the hot Cuban sun. A popular Cuban drink, Ernest Hemingway made the mojito famous with his taste for the Caribbean beverage.


Cuba is not a shoppers' mecca, but a variety of attractive handicrafts are available, and of course the famous Havana Club rum and numerous excellent cigars are a good buy. If bargaining at a craft market, Cubans normally ask a fairly low price which will not move very much, so don't offer half of what they suggest, this would be an insult. If you are planning on bringing back some Cuban cigars, consider a visit to La Casa del Habano, where, since 1845, 500 workers have hand-rolled cigars while a colleague reads a newspaper out loud to them.
