• Havana
  • Cienfuegos
  • Trinidad

Fidel Castro, Che Guevera, Camilo Cienfuegos and Raul Castro... They were the leaders of the 82 revolutionaries who boarded the Granma yacht in Mexico in 1959, although it was made for only 12 people. They crossed the Mexican Gulf and the Caribbean Sea in a week, landing on the shore known as Granma today and created a miracle. The revolution changed the fate of Cuba forever! Today, Cuba is a country rich in contradictons. The country has been suffering a 50-year US economic embargo, but despite half a century of neglect, it is still extremely beautiful and takes you to a time travel. In the country of libertarian workers, dance and music is bread and butter of the soul... The fascinating colonial buildings with shabby facades still wait for a face-lift, while many have also been renovated as private homestays. Economic reforms announced in recent years have also loosened the restictions on private enterprise and this led to a new wave of restaurants, cafes and bakeries opening all around. Beyond the capital city of Havana, the island’s nature charms visitors with its beautiful fertile lands that are still covered with tobacco and sugar cane plantations, as well as mango trees. Make sure to visit the colonial cities of Cienfuegos and Trinidad, crystal clear beaches of Varadero, or the island’s eastern heartland that hides the UNESCO protected Alejandro de Humboldt National Park, as well as surprising small towns like Santiago de Cuba and Holguin.
