Four Reasons Why Travelling Brits Are Bound To Fall In Love With Cuba

By 09 July, 2020

Cuba is a country unlike anywhere else in the world. There is a sense that visiting the country is like taking a step back in time, and wandering around the magical Old Havana is like something out of a storybook. There is so much to love about the country, and it is no surprise that it has quickly become a hotspot for British tourists that want to explore something new.

The effect that Cuba has had on nightlife in the UK has already been examined by, who looked at the best Latin and Salsa bars that can be found in the second city. But why should travellers ensure that they visit Cuba next?

The Beaches

Simply put, there is no other country in the world that can boast the incredible beaches that can be found in Cuba. Cuban beaches are the idyllic place for visitors to come to in order to unwind. Visitors will immediately feel less stressed after sitting on the beaches for a couple of hours, and they are the perfect place for an afternoon nap. The perfect beach spots can be found between Santiago de Cuba and Havana.

Old Havana

We have already briefly mentioned Old Havana, but it is seriously unlike anything that tourists will be able to find anywhere else. It is like stepping back in time with the classic cars and historical buildings. There is entertaining on every corner with enjoyable music and delicious street food. The old town is perfect for all visitors no matter whether you’re on a romantic trip abroad or just looking to relax with some friends.

Beautiful Scenery

It isn’t much of a surprise that much of the attention that the country gets revolves around Havana, but visitors will also find some of the most magical sights away from the city. There are a number of UNESCO sights around the country, with the magical towns of Trinidad and Camaguey among the most popular with visitors. These heritage sights are preserved fantastically, and seeing them will be a highlight of any trip. There is still beautiful scenery to enjoy in the forms of the Vinales Valley and around the karst hills. Visitors should also embrace the rural life that comes with Cuba, and visit the tobacco heartlands to get a sense of what life in the county is really like.

The Nightlife

The biggest draw that Cuba has is its nightlife. There is music everywhere and incredible shows that can only be enjoyed in this magical country. Club Tropicana is an obvious place that tourists will flock to, but the bars that can be found around Havana are where visitors can get the traditional Cuban experience. Deciding what to drink when you’re relaxing may also be complex, with Cuba being the brains behind cocktails that are renowned around the world such as the Mojito, the Daiquiri and the Cuba Libre.
