Located in the Caribbean Sea, Cuba is one of the most unique, vibrant, and energetic tourist destinations in the world. Visiting Cuba is like traveling back in time, as the island feels trapped in the past.

From colorful antique cars to dancing salsa in the streets, white sandy beaches to tobacco fields, every corner of this country is so picturesque and exciting.

Cuba is a bit more expensive than the other Caribbean countries since it has a second currency just for tourists and the exchange rate is the same as the US dollars.

Instead of hotels, casa particulars offer the best accommodation in Cuba. These local guesthouses are perfect for experiencing the culture and trying Cuban food.

You can easily spend a week in Havana, as there are so many things to do there. Take a stroll in historic Habana Vieja, drive a classic car in the city, hang out at Malecon with the locals, and enjoy drinking rum and smoking cigars.

Small town Viñales has a stunning lush landscape and it’s the perfect place to experience rural Cuban life. You can go horseback riding, visit tobacco farms, learn how to make Cuban cigars, and have day trips to beaches.

Trinidad is another gorgeous place to visit in Cuba. This small city is full of colored houses and charming streets with a colonial atmosphere. Hanging out at the steps of Plaza Mayor while sipping mojitos is a popular thing to do here. You can also go horseback riding, swim under waterfalls, and relax at a beach.

Cuba has amazing beaches and some of the best ones include Varadero, Playa Larga, Cayo Coco, Cayo Jutias, and Playa Ancon.

If you got more time, you should pay a visit to the Che memorial in Santa Clara, spend some time at laid-back Cienfuegos, and explore Santiago de Cuba for some more Cuban culture and music.
