Havana, Cuba


The last two years have been pretty big for Cuba: the diplomatic restoration with America, Netflix and Airbnb have become available, and let's not forget the Rolling Stones' Havana Moon concert. Beyond the beaches and technicolour streets – Cuban cliches that remain as mandatory viewing – you'll discover a surprising blend of forests, scenic countryside and mountains. Oh, and plenty of retro charm too. 

With its own distinct identity, the island nation is home to an almost endless list of cultures – primarily African and Spanish – which results in incredible architecture, music, dance and, of course, food. A multi-coloured gem in the Caribbean, Cuba is a great option for budget-wary travellers and those seeking a tropical island escape.
