Cuba's colonial, US, revolutionary and socialist history converge in its iconic capital.

Havana is a beautiful city of colourful mansions, lively squares and a legendary waterfront, providing the backdrop to Cuba's unique society in action. Here we find museums dedicated to the country's historical development, vibrant American classic cars of yesteryear, the melodic tunes of live son, bolero, salsa and rumba music and Havaneros filling the street in a hive of activity and conversation. Add to that the welcoming casas particulares homestays, an increasing number of renowned private restaurants and our wonderful guides and Havana is the perfect place to begin your Cuba holiday.

Linger here for longer and we will show you the city's Afro-Caribbean roots encapsulated in rumba rhythms, the 'Forest of Havana' where communities conduct religious ceremonies and the grand mansions confiscated by Fidel's revolutionary government and given second homes as national embassies.
