Cuba holidays by Cox & Kings

The Realities of Travel in Cuba:

Cuba is full of history, striking architecture, natural beauty and warm people but it is important to know that it is no ordinary Caribbean island and has its own unique charm. The tourist infrastructure in Cuba remains less developed than in most Latin American countries, which may result in erratic standards of service, outdated or worn hotel facilities, road journeys that can take longer than anticipated and limited or low quality dining options.

In addition, the country is currently undergoing a swift transformation and experiencing unprecedented levels of demand. With many people keen to visit before its essential character changes, the tourist infrastructure is overstretched and the process of booking hotel arrangements is unusually difficult and completely distinct from other destinations that we offer.
