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 and the colonial buildings of 'Old Havana' have earned the city a UNESCO World Heritage Site 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. With a wealth of exciting attractions, there is so much to do and see.

Cienfuegos

Discover Cienfuegos, a Caribbean city founded by French immigrants in 1819. See the historic centre, declared a World Heritage Site in 2005 (by UNESCO) - a fine example of neoclassical town planning in Cuba during the 19th century.

Trinidad

Experience slow-paced island living here. Trinidad is a well-preserved Spanish colonial settlement, boasting colonial-style mansions bedecked with Italian frescoes and French chandeliers. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, the beauty of Cuba's oldest and most enchanting outdoor museum has been luring tourists ever since. Surrounded by sparkling natural attractions, Trinidad also offers its visitors gorgeous beaches and lush nature.

Santa Clara

Set in the centre of Cuba, this city boasts new trends, creativity and an edgy youth. The fiery personality of Santa Clara has been shaped by its prestigious university presence and its subsequent rise in modernity.

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. Its main attraction is its superb beach! Divided into five sections for a total of approximately 13 km, it is ideal for taking long walks on the beach, swimming in pristine turquoise waters or just relaxing under the sun!
