Places to visit in Cuba

With warm sunny days and a laid-back vibe, Cuba is a place to relax and soak up a melting pot of cultures. Pull up a chair and join the locals for a spot of rum, or, if the rum’s a little too heady, try a café Cubano, a deep, rich and slightly sweet coffee. When not shaking your hips to the steamy salsa beats of Havana’s nightlife or sipping mojitos and Cuba Libres, you can kick back on gorgeous white-sand beaches and dive turquoise waters home to a vast array of marine life: think barracudas and mesmerising lionfish. Or perhaps head into the lesser-visited upcountry, where tobacco plantations, orchid fields and plunging waterfalls coexist.

Intoxicating salsa beats

Immerse yourself in Cuba’s intoxicating latin beats in its energetic capital, and soak up the vibrant colours and distinct flavours of its crumbling streets. Drive along Havana’s Malecón, five miles of crashing waves and crumbling buildings, and look out for the brightly coloured classic American cars weaving through the narrow streets. Better yet, take a ride in one and explore the city in style.

Step back in time

Turn back the clock to the mid-19th century among the historic squares and pretty churches of Trinidad, surrounded by lush sugar plantations. The town, complete with cobbled streets and colonial mansions, plus the occasional wandering donkey, was declared a World Heritage site in 1988, and continues to draw the crowds, attracted to its peaceful atmosphere and soft sand beaches.

Palacio de Valle

Cienfuegos, nicknamed the Pearl of the South, offers a unique mix of French and Caribbean flavours along its wide avenues and leafy parks. While a sunset stroll along the seafront is a delightful way to pass the time, don’t leave town without a visit to the architectural wonder of the Palacio de Valle, a magnificently ornate palace with a mix of Roman, Venetian and gothic styles, completed in 1917.

Vinales countryside, Cuba Vinales mogotes

Vinales

Tobacco mountains

Dotted with mogotes, as the eroded limestone karsts are known here, and interspersed with tobacco fields, Vinales is a bucolic, chilled out place. The nightlife here is non-existent, and that’s no bad thing; come instead for hiking, biking, caving and riding among the hills, long evenings spent gazing up at the stars and a relaxed pace of life far removed from any you’ll find the rest of Cuba.
