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 – especially in Havana – changes forever.
Our new Cuba holiday is accompanied by a Host who flies out from Britain to take care of all local arrangements. There’s also a December departure for Christmas in the sun!
Our 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 will make the most of the evenings, seeking out authentic nightlife and finding our rhythm on the dance-floor! Meal arrangements in Havana include breakfast each morning and 1 evening meal. Other meals are at your expense, though we’ll no doubt eat together at local restaurants. 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, so all meals, drinks by the glass and the majority of the hotel’s services and activities are included in our package.

Monday
Meet your Host at Gatwick and fly to Havana. We are scheduled to arrive 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, we greet our local guide and driver for a full-day sightseeing tour of Havana, which is included in the package. We have wheels, but wandering on foot is all part of the city’s attraction! Wednesday
A free day, with plenty of time to discover Havana independently, or take an optional excursion with a special theme: Hemingway? A dance class? Cigar-making?


Thursday
Our final morning in the city (time for shopping!) before transferring by road (about 2 hours) to Varadero.Get checked in at our new hotel then we will meet up for drinks before dinner: we’re on the all-inclusive programme now!


Friday
Good morning Varadero! We’ll get together after breakfast to talk about all the options for your beach holiday and then it’s time to 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. Optional excursions at extra cost are an opportunity to explore the coast and the countryside.


Thursday
Everyone flies home today: Virgin Atlantic passengers transfer to Havana for their flight. Thomson passengers fly from Varadero. In both cases, flights land at Gatwick at breakfast time on Friday morning.

Our accommodation partner is H10 Hotels. 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.
In Varadero, we relax at the H10 Ocean Vista Azul, a new 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, 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.

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, and our winter is Cuba’s dry season, making our departure dates the ideal time to visit, with lower humidity and temperatures typically 22-26C by day. Havana is the capital city of Cuba, with a colourful history resulting from a wonderful melting-pot of cultures. It has a unique vibe: you do not have to stroll far to see Cubans going about their daily life – with gusto – singing, arguing, dancing or even watching TV on the streets!
