Cuba is amazing! It is at long last entering the 21st century and opening up to international tourism, so now is the time to go, before its unique character changes forever, especially in Havana.

This excellent two-centre holiday is accompanied throughout by a Friendship Travel Host who flies out from Britain to take care of all local arrangements.
The 10-night package includes flights into Havana for a three-night stay in the lively capital. We include a full day guided tour to discover Cuba’s history, culture and its exciting future! We make the most of the evenings, seeking out authentic nightlife and finding our rhythm on the dance-floor!

After exploring Havana we head east to the fantastic resort of Varadero for 7 nights of total relaxation! Make the most of the hotel’s facilities and seaside location, but do try at least one of our optional excursions, whether it’s swimming with dolphins or discovering rural Cuba. Our holiday arrangements at Varadero are on an All-inclusive basis

This holiday is a fabulous way for single travellers to discover this truly exciting emerging destination, safe in the knowledge that the trip is fully escorted by Friendship Travel. Book early, especially if you’d like to celebrate Christmas in Cuba!

Our accommodation partner in Cuba is the reliable H10 Hotels group. In Havana, the jazzy-looking H10 Habana Panorama is our base. This modern hotel has a big outdoor pool, 3 restaurants, 4 bars and a free shuttle to/from Habana Vieja (Havana Old Town) which is about 20 minutes away. 

Meal arrangements in Havana include breakfast each morning and one evening meal. Other meals are at local restaurants – still taken as a group, but at your own expense.
In Varadero, we relax at the H10 Ocean Vista Azul, a hotel on a clifftop location. There are sea views and easy access to the sandy beach. The elevated position ensures cooling breezes. There are 6 restaurants (in low season – summer – restaurant may open on alernative nights), 7 bars, activities (included in the package) from water sports to dance lessons, a theatre, beauty and fitness centres, and a second pool. Varadero golf course is next door, with special rates for guests.

The All-inclusive plan here means all meals, drinks by the glass and the majority of the hotel’s services and activities are included in our package. 

Here is the outline itinerary for the holiday:

Monday - Meet your Host at Gatwick to fly to Havana. The schedule has us arriving mid-afternoon, so there’s plenty of time to unpack and relax before dinner, which tonight is ‘on us’ at the hotel.

Tuesday – After breakfast, greet our local guide and driver for a full-day sightseeing tour of Havana, included in the package. We have wheels, but wandering on foot is all part of the city’s attraction!


Wednesday – A free day, so you can discover Havana independently, or take an optional excursion with a special theme: Hemingway? A dance class? Cigar-making?

Thursday – A final morning in the city, with time for shopping, before transferring by road to Varadero, which takes around 2 hours. After check-in, meet for drinks before dinner: we’re on the All-inclusive programme now!

Friday – Good morning Varadero! We get together after breakfast to talk about the options for the beach part of the holiday: slap on the sunscreen and soak up some much-needed sunshine.

Saturday - Wednesday  - How much you do is up to you. There’s tennis and basketball, kayaking, catamarans and pedal boats; yoga and aerobics, dance classes, boccia… even a foam party! At night, the theatre offers great cabarets and Cuban dancing, all laid on by the hotel. Do as much, or as little as you wish. There are optional excursions to help you explore the coast and the countryside (extra cost).

Departure day (sadly). We transfer back to Havana for our flight and land at Gatwick at breakfast time on Friday morning.

Cuba is by far the largest of the Caribbean islands, sitting 90 miles south of Florida’s Key West and on a similar latitude as Mexico. The island enjoys a tropical climate all year round, without huge swings in temperature, from around 23C in winter to 27C in summer. The wettest months are in summer, but it’s hardly monsoon weather, and heavy showers soon dry up.

Havana is a port city, protected by a 4km sea wall, the Malecon. Its colourful history results from a melting pot of cultures and it has a unique vibe. One ‘must do’ while in the city is an early evening stroll along the Malecon, and the warren of streets in ‘Habana Vieja’ are now UNESCO World Heritage listed.

Varadero is 150kms east of Havana: it’s a finger-like peninsula fringed with fine sandy beaches that rival any in the Caribbean. It’s a great spot to relax in western-style hotels but also a good base from which to explore the natural environment and authentic communities like Trinidad, Santa Clara and Cienfuegos on optional day trips. See the Excursions tab below for more details.

Good hotels, flights were excellent, host was friendly and most helpful.


The history and excitement of Havanah was full on and we covered a lot in those 3 days then down to the beach resort where the hotel was well equipped.
