The Americans may be coming, but the history, culture and Caribbean charm is here to stay

One of the most complex, controversial and downright fascinating countries in the world has been a magnet for visitors the world over, long before the door at the bottom of America was unlocked. For all the concerns for what this might mean for a famously cocooned and inward-looking island, extra visitor numbers and superficial changes cannot mask the rich vein of culture and heritage which permeates Cuba, nor ever change the essence of what makes it so special. The crumbling facades remain, classic cars and horse-drawn carts still shuffle around colonial era towns and the revolutionary air hasn't yet dissipated. The cities of Havana, Trinidad and Santiago, maintained in a perfect time-warp, transport you back to the 1950s, whilst white sandy beaches, deep blue skies and azure waters invite you to take life at a pace more in-keeping with the easy-going nature of the fiercely proud and friendly inhabitants of this intoxicating Caribbean island.
