Paradise…with a history.
Cuba. The name conjures up a unique tropical wonderland with a rich historical past. True to its reputation, Cuba offers white beaches and azure waters. Quaint pastel coloured homes and grand colonial cathedrals. Where else can you find fleets of mint-condition, 50s Chevies, roaring down archaic cobbled streets? Or genuine, hand-rolled Cuban cigars that set the global smoke standard? The islands greatest allure, is its people, with their welcome smiles and winning manners. You will find Cubans in the bustling open markets and restaurants, performing street musicians outside dazzling cafés and cabarets, and gyrating in colourfully-plumed dance costumes inside inky nightclubs. Needless to say, Havana is an absolute must-see with its multi-faceted art, culture and architecture that dates back to the early 1500s. Whatever you do, youll discover that Cuba dazzles the senses with its endless offerings.

Varadero is a resort town in the province of Matanzas, Cuba, and one of the largest resort areas in the Caribbean. The place was first used as a dry dock and the salt mines of the peninsula (closed in 1961) supplied most of the Spanish Latin America Fleet since 1587. However, the foundation date of Varadero as city was only on December 5, 1887, when ten families from the city of Cárdenas obtained a permission to build their vacation homes between today's 42nd and 48th Street. Varadero is foremost a tourist resort town, boasting more than 20 km of white sandy beaches. The first tourists visited Varadero as early as the 1870s, and for years it was considered an elite resort. In 1910 the annual rowing regatta was started; five years later the first hotel, named Varadero and later Club Nautico, was built. Tourism grew in the early 1930s as Irénée du Pont, an American millionaire, built his estate on the peninsula. Many famous and infamous people stayed in Varadero, for example Al Capone.
Holguín is a municipality and city, the capital of the Cuban Province of Holguín. It also includes a tourist area, offering beach resorts in the outskirts of the region. After Havana, Santiago de Cuba, and Camaguey, it is the fourth largest city in Cuba.
Havana, officially Ciudad de La Habana, is the capital city, major port, and leading commercial centre of Cuba. The city is one of the 15 Cuban provinces. The city/province has 2.1 million inhabitants, the largest city in Cuba and the second largest in the Caribbean region, after Santo Domingo. The city extends mostly westward and southward from the bay, which is entered through a narrow inlet and which divides into three main harbours: Marimelena, Guanabacoa, and Atarés. The sluggish Almendares River traverses the city from south to north, entering the Straits of Florida a few miles west of the bay.
Cayo Coco is an island in the Jardines del Rey chain off the north coast of Ciego de Avila province in Cuba. Cayo Coco is very relaxing and is the perfect place to go to if you want to do close to nothing for your vacation. You will find a few resorts, a spa, an international clinic (hospital), a night club (the Bat Cave) and an airport. In other words, there is not much to do or to visit there but sometimes all you need for your vacation is a little calm and quiet, and you will find that in Cayo Coco.
