Country Guides - Cuba



If you are looking for a holiday that is a little different, where it appears that little has changed over the last few decades, try a low cost Cuba holiday. Cuba is a lovely island in the Caribbean with stunning palm-fringed beaches, that are the epitome of the romantic desert island. The clear, blue seas are comfortably warm and are filled with exotic species of marine life. The island topography is varied with a mountainous interior, giving way to lowland hills, plains, plantations and the aforementioned coast. Cuba was isolated from the west for many decades and received support from Russia until the breakup of the Soviet Union. In an effort to improve its economy, there has been great investment in the tourist industry and visitors are made very welcome. Hotels reach very high standards and service is excellent. With fantastic beaches and great weather cheap Cuba holidays have wide appeal. Whether you merely want to relax by the sea or pool, or wish to participate in sports or sightseeing, there'll be a discounted Cuba holiday to suit. Water sports abound with everything from jet skiing to banana boating, to snorkelling and diving. Diving is particularly rewarding as the waters are so fertile. There are also off shore wrecks to be explored. Cuba holidays have wide appeal with families and couples, sportsmen and women, and young adults looking for party nights, all being able to find a vacation to suit their needs.

The temperature in Cuba varies little throughout the year. Remember the hurricane season lasts from the end of July to October, as you may wish to avoid this time. There are often tropical rain showers but, while they are heavy they are also warm, and they are generally short and things dry up quickly in the following sunshine.

When deciding on accommodation, do take a look at the all-inclusive tariffs as you may be surprised at their good value. It is very easy to stay within budget when you choose this option. Cuba restaurants cater for all tastes as they serve international cuisine. The only thing you won't find are American fast food outlets. Shopping isn't a terribly good experience unless you want to buy locally made craft items or Cuban cigars. Nightlife is a lively affair and once the sun goes down the party begins and the throb of music continues into the early hours.

Cuba is a charming island with a warm and welcoming population. There are many purpose-built resorts which cater for all your needs from personal comfort to activities and entertainment.
