Cuba is culture, nature, history, magic and traditions. The largest of the Antilles, it is the result of the mixture of multiple cultures, fusions of races and customs that resulted in one of the most unique and fascinating Caribbean destinations.
The people of Cuba will make your trip. Cubans are imaginative, hospitable, cheerful and unprejudiced. They have a clear and lively intelligence and enjoy jokes and parties. Share and enjoy the charangas, the parrandas, the carnivals, the local festivals and patron saint's festivities where you will undoubtedly have the opportunity to taste the typical Cuban gastronomy which consists of Buñuelos, Tamales and roast pork to name but a few. These are almost always accompanied by a good coffee, or a refreshing drink such as a Daiquiri, Mojito, Cuba Libre or Piña Colada.
The triumph of the Cuban Revolution marks a before and after in its history and for Cuba this meant the creation of new possibilities, turning its culture into one of the most prolific in Latin America. Cuba is renowned for dance, literature and practically any art form, be it theatre, cinema or visual arts.
