Away from the all-inclusive resorts Cuba will capture your imagination and your heart. It is over 50 years since Castro's Revolution managed to both transform and petrify the island's society and economy. This holiday takes you to the authentic heart of the country - Cuba’s unique Latin American beat sets it apart from all the other islands of the Caribbean.

Crumbling colonial towns are characterised by dilapidated splendour, evocative of past elegance. The dusty alleys teem with barefoot boys playing baseball with bottle caps and rhythms pulsing out of every doorway. Vintage Cadillacs still roam the streets which, beyond Havana and a few trunk roads, are virtually traffic free. The youthful population has retained a natural exuberance, expressed in dance and music, which spontaneously breaks out day and night. The tropical scenery, unspoilt and pristine, is as stunning as it is varied, and the warm waters of the Caribbean lap against palm fringed beaches, enjoyed by local people and tourists alike.

Parakeet

This is a great tour because it travels the entire length of the country, providing the opportunity to see the contrast of the undeveloped east, with the wealthier west, all the while soaking up the country's unusual and turbulent history.
