Taking a Trip to Cuba

Updated: Apr 1, 2021

From white sand beaches to colonial style buildings, there is so much more to Cuba! The Cuban cities are so diverse, it’s hard not to fall in love; there is something for everyone. Whether you are looking to relax and sip on a mojito, or you’re looking for some history and adventure, Cuba has got it all. The white powdery sand beaches, where turquoise water meets the shore, are pristine to laze the day away.

You’ll find beautiful, colourful, historic buildings throughout Havana. You’ll hear vibrant Cuban music while walking on the cobbled streets. For a breath-taking view, visit the Malecon; stretching 8 miles along the Havana Coast, explore it while driving in a beautiful, old 1950’s car as the wind blows through your hair. It’ll be an unforgettable experience.

Looking for nature? Take an excursion to the Vinales and explore the caves and lush greenery. Cuba is known for their local artisan markets with beautiful wooden sculptures, art, and souvenirs. While shopping, stop in at local restaurants and enjoy some of the local cuisine and do try the Spanish coffee.

One of my most memorable experiences was an evening performance at a resort with gorgeous flamboyant costumes and exquisite dancers and aerialist. Their strength and poise were just breath taking. What I couldn’t believe was how little they had to work with in terms of props and equipment. No safety nets or mats to cushion a fall. It was pure raw talent and it definitely showed. By the end of the show, you’ve made wonderful friends sitting next to you, bonding over the performers and their talent.


Staying at the all-inclusive resorts are worth every penny as you have access to an abundance of food and drinks for the entirety of your stay. As well as activities offered by the resorts with friendly staff always willing to offer assistance. Varadero is the most popular destination in Cuba with over 50 resorts. It’s popular with all travellers, and known for its diving, for swimming with dolphins, and eco-tourism. Golfers visiting Cuba are going to want to visit Varadero for the only two courses on the island.

Famed beaches, retro cars in the city streets, history full of revolutions and great stories, and rum and cigars known around the world — that’s Cuba. In many ways, stepping off the plane in Cuba is like stepping into a page of a ‘pick you own adventure’ story.
