Old Cars and Cigars – Cuba Holidays

136576305Perfect for a Caribbean holiday, Cuba has some of the best beaches in the world, the most fascinating history and is legendary in its own right.

Communist Cuba is changing politically and this is a great time to witness the revolution and speak to locals about life here… how it has been and how it will be. Drink rum, smoke cigars, take pictures of Che Guevara imagery and take a tour around Havana in an Old American car.

Being one of the most reasonably priced of the Caribbean islands… there really is nowhere on earth quite like Cuba and the time to go is now.


Cuba’s capital city, Havana, is charm personified…from the amazing colonial architecture to the classic American cars lining the streets. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Havana is passionate, eclectic and makes you feel like a 50′s icon!

Visit the Catedral de San Cristobal in beautiful Old Havana or go for a tour at the Havana Club Rum Factory!

The Cayos (Jardines del Rey)

Strung along Cuba’s North coast, The Cayos are a set of unbelievably perfect islands… made for romance, relaxation, honeymoons and a dose of that Robinson Crusoe vibe.

Cayo Santa Maria is luxury resort central where you can wander through mangrove forests or sleep on white sand beaches. If it’s an underwater adventure you are after… Head to Cayo Coco, for diving in one of the world’s largest coral reefs.

If the Cayo’s are too laid back for you try Varadero or the Holguin Region for something a bit busier but with fantastic beaches.
