Extrodinary Havana

An electric mix of culture and history, Havana is one of Latin America’s most unique cities.

Havana, the Cuban capital and the Caribbean’s largest city, offers a heady mix of nightlife and culture. Where else in the world would you find pulsating salsa clubs alongside pastel-washed colonial architecture, with vintage American cars on every street?

Jump on a cheap flight to Cuba for the chance to stroll through the sunny plazas and museums of the labyrinthine Old City, home to the Museo de la Revolución. Or enjoy the glitz of a late-night cabaret show. There’s never a dull moment while on holiday in Havana. And you can always rest on a Caribbean beach if you need to.
