Cuba is the largest country in the Caribbean and is located just 90 miles south of Key West, Florida. Cuba consists of the main island, multiple cays, and rocky inlets.
The 1959 revolution and the subsequent US trade embargo has frozen the island in time; vintage American cars still roar through the ramshackle streets of its cities, while horses and carts clatter through the countryside. Although Americans have been prohibited to travel to Cuba for decades, it has remained a top travel destination in the Caribbean for many people who are drawn to its immaculate beaches, rolling mountain ranges, lush rainforests with tumbling waterfalls, and vibrant cities.
The capital of Havana is a intoxicating mixture of dilapidation and debauchery. The contrasts can be stark, but Havana’s contagious salsa rhythms, uninhibited dancing and delicious rum cocktails are ubiquitous throughout the city and make for an enthralling urban experience unlike any other.
Cuba is over 800 miles long. If you only have a short time to experience the country, we recommend exploring the Western coast. If you have more time, the Gulf of Batabano is not to be missed!
