Cuba Tourism

Bringing up the rear, as Communism walks into the parlour for a capital makeover, Cuba is just walking through the swing door. Revolutionised, somewhat ravaged, part good, part ugly, totally rummy, here’s a country that loves the traveller as much as the traveller is going to love her. Stung sharp by the collapse of the Soviet Union that used to subsidise the Cuban economy to the tune of millions of dollars, Cuba went into a severe and protracted economic recession.

Ten years hence however, Cuba managed to recover somewhat and is courting you, the tourist, carrier of valuable foreign exchange, with customary Cuban gusto.

And why would you not go here? Time was when cash-strapped, ideology-rich co-eds flocked to the sugar plantations to help sow and reap; time is now when snazzy beachfront hotels and a spruced up country welcome the Caribbean enthusiast. Beaches, sunshine, the throb and shake of salsa and son and rumba, the rum, mellow habanos, rich coffee, angst and enthusiasm fill your every cup to the brim. Visit now; get there before Castro really dies.

Cuba is well known for producing some of the world’s finest cigars such as Monte Cristo, Romeo y Julietta and Cohiba.

Cuba is the largest island in the West Indies and therefore Cubans refer to their island as 'El Cocodrilo' -when viewed from above, Cuba is believed to resemble a crocodile!
