With our tailor-made holidays in Cuba, travellers will explore this island’s fascinating history, distinct culture, and intrigue, as it remains one of our most alluring destinations.

Why travel to Cuba

While it is certainly opening up to the world, Cuba can still transport you back to a bygone era. For those who have a passion for the arts and music – Cuba is an intoxicating destination. Music, in particular, is at the heart and soul of this country. Our guides on the ground are academics, musicians and artists who can all speak from experience and are passionate about sharing their knowledge with you.
Havana has some of the most beautiful examples of Spanish colonial architecture in the world where you can wander the sultry streets and get a feel for Cuban life. Head out into the countryside where you’ll find vast sugar cane plantations, cattle ranches, beautiful mountain ranges and stunning beaches. Here you’ll find the local Cubans playing dominoes, never far from a bottle of rum.

Our Destination Experts can help you explore this vibrant and culturally captivating island on a tailor-made holiday in Cuba. Behind the façade of the old colonial buildings of Havana and Cuba’s smaller towns, privately-owned boutique hotels have popped up alongside the small bars and cafes which are Cuba’s way of life, night and day.

There just couldn't have been a better way to drink in the whole flavour of unspoilt Cuba in eight marvelous days than hopping aboard Henrietta Loyd's wonderful small group trip to Cuba.

Viñales was my favourite place in the whole of Cuba. We loved our casa and our host, and had a great time on the farm experience. The cave tour was also amazing and the horse riding was highly recommendable.
