Hotels in Cuba
'Vive La Revolucion' in Cuba hotels, and discover a land that has been hiked firmly into the present, with elegant resorts and luxury hotels now bordering its pristine beaches. But there's still plenty of history and rich heritage to absorb on holidays to Cuba, with the colonial Spanish architecture of Trinidad, the communist monuments and vintage cars buzzing around Havana, and the throbbing beats of salsa echoing from inner city bars.
Live the high life on holidays in Cuba in Varadero, the chicest beach retreat, with its pristine sands, excellent snorkelling and the clear water in the Atlantic Ocean. Spend evenings in the hotels in Cuba unwinding with a Rum Daiquiri, Ernest Hemingway's cocktail of choice, or head to Havana for the glitz and glamour of the Club Tropicana. There may be excellent facilities in the Cuba hotels, but make sure you venture beyond the resorts for holidays to Cuba with a difference. Savour some fresh seafood and local cuisine at Havana's Paladares, small restaurants run out of Cuban homes, and stock up on Havana Cigars, Rum, and Cuban Coffee in the capital.
