Far from just an island paradise, it is both Cuba’s colonial and more recent political history that has set it apart as one of the most unique and attractive holiday destinations in the world. Heavy sanctions imposed in the mid 20th century mean Cuban life is frozen in the charming era of the 50s, and old cars and buildings typify capital Havana’a vibey streets.  Swathes of magical colonial architecture line colorful avenues, and pristine beaches are always near. Add in a shot of delicious rum, a Cuban cigar, and lots of salsa dancing, and you have a one of a kind holiday escape. Cuba is a wondrous and otherworldly Caribbean.
