Cuba dances to its own rhythm. Even if this communist Caribbean nation is slowly sliding to the West, pastel-shaded Havana lives in the past. It’s a place of rusting Cadillacs, fruit carts, crumbling colonial buildings, Sovietesque monuments to revolutionary heroes and locals chatting on the seafront wall. There’s a Cuba beyond the capital, too: valleys of tobacco fields and limestone outcrops. The sleepy, white-sand islets of the northern cayes. And music – the country’s lifeblood. Everywhere pulses to the sounds of salsa and son.
Our Cuba specialists have a deep affection for this complex country. They’ll prepare you for its quirks and advise how you can experience it most richly, from the best casas de la trova (traditional music halls) to the quietest beaches and nature reserves.
