Cuban Holidays. Facts and places to see.

Jul 4, 2008
Planning a Cuban holiday? Excellent, this is one island in the Caribbean where you will want to do more than just a beach holiday. The people are bright, self-assertive and handsome. The heritage of Cuba is so rich as are the monuments and palaces throughout the country. A Cuban Holiday is without a doubt one to consider.

These are just some of the facts to consider and places and things you should not miss in your holidays to Cuba.

Cayo Largo: This major beach resort 115 km (71 miles) east of the Isla de Ia Juventud is a favourite destination for SCUBA divers and bird- watchers. Cranes, pelicans, flamingos and bee-hummingbirds abound here along the flats.

Thanks to the warm waters of the Gull Stream and the trade winds (northeast in the summer, southeast in winter), the island's climate is moderate and stable, sub tropical but less hot than elsewhere in the Caribbean. In Havana, the average temperature hovers around 25C (77F). The dry season lasts from November to mid-May and the rainy season from end-May to October.

Cayo Guillermo: This little coral key of just 13 sq km (5 sq miles) was one of Ernest Hemingway's favourite fishing destinations and it is still good for marlin and mackerel, notably on boats chartered at the main hotel, Villa CojImar (named after the village near Havana where Hemingway used to keep his boat).

The island's population is just over 11,000,000 and a fifth of them is living in Havana, the largest city in the Caribbean-in addition to some 700,000 exiles, mostly in Miami. Other major cities are Santiago de Cuba (440,000), Camagiiey (294,000) and Holguin (242,000).

The list of places to visit and things to do goes on and on. The options are immeasurable for your holidays to Cuba. The last advice is to keep researching so that you can enjoy your holidays to the fullest.
