Cuba is like no other country you will ever visit in Central or South America, of that you can be absolutely certain. Situated in the northern Caribbean, the island of Cuba has a unique history that ensures every visitor comes away with a lasting impression of the country. The capital city of Havana is a curious mix of architectural gems and crumbling apartment blocks, which, while clearly in need of some love and attention, still retain an air of elegance that their dilapidated appearance only serves to enhance. If you have ever wondered what a country would look like if it were frozen in time for more than 50 years, this is the destination for you. Once outside the main cities, the country offers numerous opportunities for trekking in areas with stunning scenery, where you can also observe the varied indigenous wildlife.
