Cuba: Multi centre holidays.

Aug 12, 2008
Cuba is such a big Island that it makes it ideal for multi centre holidays. There is so much to do and see that sometimes - depending on the itinerary - 2 weeks are not enough.

Because Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, it has many attractions that separate it from the rest of the countries in the area: beautiful beaches, colourful Flora and Fauna, lush vegetation and interesting geographic features. The history and Culture Cuba enjoys are certainly one of its main attributes.

Varadero and Guardalavaca are the most popular beach locations in Cuba. In fact they were the only beaches with infrastructure before the tourist boom in Cuba in late 90's. Later on other beach destinations followed such as Cayo Largo, Cayo Coco, Santa Lucia, Cayo Guillermo and the newest Cayo Ensenacho.

European and African influences, mixed with aboriginal and Asian ingredients, gave rise to the features that differentiate Cuba from the rest of the islands in the Caribbean. Cuba for Centuries was the centre of the Spanish metropolis in America. This explain why its architecture is so striking and its culture so rich.

The Cuban geography is as diverse as its History and Culture. Among the most striking landscapes are Viales Valley, Escambray Mountains, Sierra Maestra, Cienaga de Zapata (Zapata Swamp), Valle de Yumuri in Matanzas.

Havana has to be the location par excellence in Cuba. It is for sure the main source of interaction with the real Cuban culture. This vibrant city located on the north coast of Cuba towards the west end is the main point of arrival of the almost 3 million a year visitors to Cuba.

Some of the other locations worth visiting are Playa Larga, Trinidad, Baracoa, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. Santiago de Cuba is famous for its music, carnivals in July and also for its history. From the Mountains in Santiago de Cuba Fidel Castro led the revolution that ended Batista's dictatorship.

If you want to know the real Cuba you will have to plan your trip with real care. A research about the different locations is a good start. Getting in touch with a tour operator that has the knowledge of Cuba is crucial. It is not going to be more expensive because your holiday is tailor made. In most cases it works actually cheaper than the usual beach holiday. I hope this has encouraged you to experience the real Cuba and wish you an excellent journey.
