Cuba has been described as socialism under the sun or even ‘the red flag with salsa’ but today, with the restoration of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba after half a century of antipathy, the country is on the cusp of change.
Although the tourism infrastructure is slowly improving, at present it remains rather below par and there isn’t currently enough accommodation to cope. We recommend booking at least six months in advance for tailor-made itineraries or to travel as part of a group tour.
Cuba is full of surprises. Communism in the Caribbean, if it can be called that, is full of anachronisms. Think of big cigars and good cocktails, the very symbols of Western decadence, but decrepit infrastructure and poor food. It has the highest literacy rate in Latin America but survives on rum, revolution and rationing. And extraordinary improvisation.
Mix in some fantastic colonial architecture, no international chain stores, stunning beaches, friendly faces with a ready smile, music on virtually every corner and you have all the ingredients for a very unusual holiday.
At Cuba Revealed we have a team of professionals with considerable knowledge and first hand expertise in putting together tailor made arrangements for the places you are planning to visit.
