I have found some terrific Cuba holiday tours on the internet and I have selected one for you to look at in some detail. Cuba is one of those places that all of us have heard of, everyone has an opinion about, but few people have ever been to. As adventure holidays go, this is one with a difference, you can check out what you have heard and make up your own mind about this fascinating island. Brief Facts About Cuba In 1492, Columbus claimed the island of Cuba for the king of Spain. These days, Cuba is home to over 11 million people and is the 16th biggest island in the world, and the biggest in the Caribbean in area and by population. Its people, culture, and customs come from a variety of sources, such as the aboriginal inhabitants, Spanish colonialists and African slaves. Climate The climate is tropical with a drier season from November to April, and a rainier one from May to October. The temperature averages 21 degrees in January and 27 degrees in July. The warm Caribbean Sea helps to make Cuba the victim of regular hurricanes which most commonly occur in September and October. Music Cuba is famous for its music and rhythms. Everyone knows the styles of son, salsa, mambo, rumba and cha-cha-cha. Much of this had its roots in early Afro-Cuban culture and many of the traditional instruments are clearly African in origin. You will hear music everywhere you go in Cuba and it will be one of your abiding memories of your holiday. So, there are a few facts about Cuba, so how are you genuinely going to get to know it? There are lots of adventure travel companies arranging far more than resort holidays and at very affordable prices. I have chosen one that may be precisely what you're looking for. It takes you right into the heart of the country and what's more you can forget about hotels and meet the people by picking a local homestay. Central Cuban Adventure This excursion examines the central part of Cuba taking in both important revolutionary sites as well as the gorgeous coastline and beaches. Havana The tour starts here, in one of the oldest cities in the western hemisphere. Havana became a World Heritage Site in 1982 mainly due to the superb colonial buildings. You'll be able to go on a walking tour to discover the old town. Havana boasts some good museums, but one of its main visitors attractions is its music and clubs. Everywhere you go you will hear and feel the music, and see people dancing. For a first night you cannot do much better than Havana. Santa Clara Next you move east to Santa Clara, the site of the last, decisive battle of the Revolution. You can visit the Che Guevara monument and see the mausoleum where he is buried. Trinidad This is another World Heritage Site and a enchanting old town of cobbled streets, pastel coloured houses as well as colonial architecture. It has a background of green mountains and is not far from the beautiful Caribbean coast of Plays Ancon, a well known spot for snorkelling and scuba diving. Those visitors looking for other outdoor activities can try horse or bike riding. Trinidad is anexcellent place for music too, and there is always a band playing somewhere and locals and tourists dancing in front of the Casa de la Musica on the corner of the main plaza. Cienfuegos The final destination is the port city of Cienfuegos which, as with any ports is a little more cosmopolitan than other places of Cuba. It comes with a charm of its own with the lovely botanical gardens as one of its primary treasures. Sitting on the bay of Cienfuegos there are many fantastic views, and a boat trip around the bay will be a fantastic way to wind up your trip before going back to Havana. This excursion will have given you a taste of Cuba, and the chances are you'll be sorry to be leaving so soon. There is far more to this unique country, and there are other all-inclusive holidays to Havana that can show you a lot more. I am a seasoned traveller, who first visited Cuba in 1971.
