Havana: Cuba’s captivating capital city

Holguin: Cuba’s northern coast
Holguin is known as the cradle of Cuban music; it is the perfect destination for lovers of dancing and partying. The weather is ideal and Cubans consider Holguin to have only two seasons: summer, when the mercury often rises above 30 degrees Celsius, and winter, when it oscillates between 24 and 25 degrees Celsius.
Varadero: The perfect sun-drenched holiday
Varadero has it all: an idyllic setting and some of Cuba’s most spectacular beaches a. Whether you’re in the mood to simply lounge by the pool or explore the miles and miles of white sand beaches, Varadero promises an unforgettable vacation.
Santiago de Cuba: Beachside idyll and urban bustle
Santiago de Cuba is the country’s second-largest city after Havana. It offers the trademark Caribbean white-sand beaches and world-class diving. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is rich in history with myriad treasures to discover, including numerous palaces and cathedrals.
Cayo Coco/Cayo Guillermo: an enchanting island
Cayo Coco is one of Cuba’s top holiday destinations, but tourism in much of this area is a fairly recent development. As such, visitors can expect stunning, unspoiled beaches near some of the island’s best resorts and hotels.
Cayo Santa Maria: Seaside bliss for all, big and small
Cuba’s idyllic Cayo Santa Maria offers a selection of adults-only hotels for those who travel in twos. And if you’re craving family time, opt for one of Cayo Santa Maria’s family-friendly resorts for seaside moments with the entire gang.
Cayo Largo: Paradise off the Cuban coast
Cayo Largo was developed 30 years ago purely for touristic purposes, so everything on the island is geared towards creating the perfect Caribbean holiday. All-inclusive hotels stretch out over pristine white sand beaches, coral reefs are prime for snorkelling enthusiasts, and iguanas and flamingos lounge alongside tourists under the sun.
