Rich in culture yet economically poor, the island of Cuba is a beguiling mix of lavish colonial architecture, fascinating history and revolutionary chic.
Itâ€™s the largest island of the Caribbean and also its most diverse, with a multitude of faiths and ethnic backgrounds - a diversity which is reflected in the countryâ€™s vibrant culture, arts and music.
Due to its political isolation, Cuba still remains largely undiscovered, retains a unique local charm and truly authentic feel - and is definitely one of our top picks for 2015!
Cuba's turbulent history can be felt everywhere from the magnificent Spanish buildings and cobblestone streets to the imposing Communist squares and Afro-Caribbean towns that pulsate with a distinctly different vibe. Much of the island's allure also lies in its beaches fringed by colourful reefs & crystal waters and it's verdant landscapes of plantations and mountains.
