Intrinsically linked to Fidele Castro, Che Guevara and fine cigars, Cuba package holidays no longer mean guerrilla warfare. We at Co-operative Travel have joined the revolution in bargain holidays to Cuba – and can take you there in just a few clicks.
Spectacular mountains; jungles of banana palms; sandy white beaches, faded Spanish palaces…a Cuba holiday offers you a totally unique Caribbean experience, one that’s spiced with the Latin fire of Salsa music and murals of Che Guevara. Cheap Cuba holidays offer a great climate, with around 300 days of sunshine a year and temperatures averaging 25 degrees. Although it’s regarded as a year-round destination, last minute holidays are best avoided in July and August if you’re not a big fan of it being really hot, as it’s at this time when temperatures and humidity soar. Between December and May, however, a Cuba holiday offers near-perfect weather conditions.
From the vintage Chevvys and Salsa bars of Havana, to the rolling hills and sugar-cane fields of Guardalavaca, a Cuba holiday offers timeless elegance and beauty. Book Cuba holidays in Old Havana, and you’ve stepped back in time. Take a tour of Hemingway’s favourite haunts; dance to the sounds of live Salsa and Rumba bands, or watch them at work in the hand-rolled cigar factory. Bargain holidays to Cuba’s capital offer heritage in abundance. Stay in a boutique hotel renovated from a 19th century Spanish colonial mansion. Stroll the sea-front boulevards, and dine in authentic Cuban restaurants rich in Latin atmosphere. Music lovers rush to book late deals to Cuba in December, as this is where the Cuba Jazz Festival takes place.
If you’re booking bargain holidays to Cuba for the beaches, we at Co-operative Travel recommend Varadero. Just a short distance from Havana, this tropical paradise has over 20 km of soft, silvery sands. With an array of watersports, marinas and dive centres, the seafront is lined with hotels, bars and restaurants for refreshment. Book last minute Cuba holidays to Guardalavaca, and you can enjoy the history and heritage of Santiago, or the lush beauty of the beaches and national parks.
