Cuba offers colourful heritage, intriguing history, lush interior and splendid beaches as well as direct Virgin Atlantic flights from London and good connections with other Latin American countries. Cuban journeys range from visits to Havana, one of the Americas’ oldest and grandest cities and a worthy destination on its own, to complete exploration of this fascinating island.

What to see

A former port of call for ships to the New World, Havana is built on a sweeping bay with beautiful baroque churches, palaces and convents lining the cobbled streets and squares of its old town. Classic American cars, glamorous cabaret shows, intoxicating Cuban music and even the state of decay of some of the colonial buildings all add to the charm and character of this enigmatic city. Memorable experiences include a ride in a 1950s American car along the famous Malecon promenade, visits to colonial mansions now converted into museums, admiring the expert skills of a cigar roller at a tobacco factory or just relaxing with a mojito on the rooftop terrace of your hotel.
