Are you flying to Cuba soon? Discover the 5 cities to visit at all costs during your trip!
The first step will seem predictable to you, but it is unavoidable: Havana. The capital of Cuba, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, seduces visitors with its superb mix of Baroque and neoclassical monuments, its unique colors and atmosphere. If you are looking for a seaside resort with a paradisiacal look, at a reasonable price and, above all, that you are not afraid of very touristic places, put your suitcases down in Varadero. Here, holidaymakers stroll on white sand, learn to kitesurf and refresh themselves in turquoise and transparent water. It can be pleasant in the middle of winter…
Don’t miss Trinidad. Designated as the most beautiful city in Cuba by some, this colonial city was one of the main centers of sugar cane production. Today, Trinidad seduces with its numerous museums, cobblestone streets, colorful buildings… For the best view of the city, go to the top of the tower of the Palacio Cantero History Museum. Further to the south of the island, Santiago de Cuba is located in a deep bay, between the Caribbean Sea and the Sierra Maestra mountain range. A drive through the bay is guaranteed to be a real eye-opener. Santiago de Cuba is home to the Baconao Biosphere Reserve, which showcases the fauna and flora of the site and is home to former coffee plantations.
Finally, if you are looking for the authentic Cuba, we advise you to head for Baracoa, a small isolated paradise where the landscapes are varied. Baracoa not being the most touristic, you will discover there tropical forests sheltering a rich fauna and flora and a preserved nature. Change of scenery guaranteed!
