Your Destinations

Havana

Havana offers a vibrant mix of cultures, history and experiences. Its cobbled streets are alive with cafes, bars and the rhythmic sounds of the rumba. The city’s architecture is an eclectic mix of Baroque, Neo-Classical and Art Deco styles, with the colonial buildings of ‘Old Havana’ earning the city a UNESCO World Heritage Listing. Culturally, Havana is a melting pot of influences from Europe, Africa and the Americas. Its unique ambience and resilient character have lured writers, artists and even the occasional revolutionary in.

Cayo Santa Maria

Cayo Santa Maria is a small island (sixteen kilometres long and two kilometres wide) located in the Bahia de Buena Vista, off the north coast of the main island of Cuba. Cayo Santa Maria's main attraction is its superb beach. It's divided into five sections for a total of approximately 13 km of sand, ideal for taking long walks, swimming in pristine turquoise waters or just relaxing under the sun!

To help you appreciate this fascinating destination from a unique perspective, we've included a stay in an authentic, private house of the inhabitants of Havana - known as a 'casas particulares'.

The living spaces are shared with other guests, meaning you can compare notes and tips - a great chance to meet new people in a warm and inviting atmosphere. By staying with a Cuban family, you will be immersed in the local culture - a truly unmissable experience!
