The former Spanish colony is today the most populous Caribbean country, the largest member of the Greater Antilles.

Cuba is the northern island of the Caribbean islands, it is bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by the Gulf of Mexico, and on the south by the Caribbean Sea.

Havana
Havana is the capital and soul of Cuba, so it is definitely a must see. Wander the cobblestone streets of Old Havana and admire the unique blend of baroque and Spanish colonial architecture. See the vintage fleets of cars, enjoy the nightlife and visit the hippest district of Vedado.

Trinidad
The city was founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar in 1513, and until the middle of the 19th century it was one of the most important strongholds of sugar in Cuba.
The city’s main attraction is the Plaza Mayor, whose atmosphere is reminiscent of colonial times. All major museums are located around the Plaza Mayor.

Sea Turtle Hatchery
Visiting the Sea Turtle Hatchery in Cayo Largo makes an unforgettable experience. At certain times of the year, you may even witness the release of baby turtles first-hand. Then head to Sirena and Paraiso beaches afterwards for wonderful sands and turquoise water.

 

Wildlife
Visit Cayo Rico where the iguanas will take center stage, or sail to Hijos de los Ballenatos mooring buoys where you can snorkel and explore the rich underwater world.
