Cuba Holidays. Things you shoud know and see.

Jul 7, 2008
Considering holidays in Cuba? 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 holiday to Cuba is something you should really consider in your agenda.

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

Driving: The island has a well-developed network of roads, with a main highway linking Pinar del Rio to Guantnamo, more than 1,120 km (700 miles) away, and several good coastal highways between the resorts. Driving is on the right. The rules follow Western European and North American norms and speed limits-50 kph (30 mph) in town, 90 kph (56 mph) on paved country highways, 100 kph (62 mph) on the Autopista Nacional.

Night life: There are some people who come to Cuba and never see it by the light of day. And still have a fine time. Even those who do not intend staying up all night and sleeping all day should enjoy one of the best sides of Cuban life and join the exuberant islanders in their singing, dancing and all-round party-going.

Tropicana in Havana: This huge nightclub, open-air in fair weather, is certainly the most famous in Cuba and perhaps in the whole Caribbean. A national institution since its opening in 1939, it is located at the south end of Vedado, quite far out in the city's western outskirts, but is served by shuttle-buses stopping at the major hotels. Prices may seem steep, including transportation and one cocktail, but you get your money's worth. The floorshow is truly spectacular, with scores of gorgeous, extravagantly costumed dancers, male and female, strutting their stuff on the stage and snaking their way among the tables in an exotic setting of tropical vegetation. The atmosphere is quite as intoxicating as the freely flowing rum, tempting the most staid custurners to get up on their chairs and dance.

Diving: At Havana, Marina Hemingway, 20km (12 miles) west of the city centre, provides good facilities and training courses for sCuba diving, as do most of the major resorts. Aficionados home in on Cayo Coco and MarIa La Gorda. For exploring underwater caves, try Varadero and Playa Girn. Both Varadero (through Cubancan Nautica near the Kawama hotel) and Havana's Marina Hemingway rent out yachts for day trips or for overnight with lobster meals and drinks galore.

There is a lot more to see and do in Cuba other than this few interesting places. Hundreds of beautiful beach and city locations can not be put in just one article. Stay tune to this article directory as there will be more useful information about Cuba coming soon.
