What our experts say

Our most affordable holidays to Cuba, this trip offers great value for money as well as the chance to immerse yourself in the Cuban way of life. We’ve kept costs down by including accommodation in casas particulares (homestays) - an important part of the culture which gives you an insight into ordinary life – and by incorporating as much flexibility as possible. For example, when you get to the beach and your fully inclusive resort Memories Jibacoa you’ll have the choice of booking activities locally or simply relaxing on the beach at the end of the trip.
