The island of Cuba, with its vibrant rhythms, varied landscape and rich heritage of literature and dance wins over many travellers, who return again and again. Cuba travel opportunities differ from those in other Latin American countries, and though the country has been a magnet for sun seeking tourists for some time, it is only slowly opening up to less traditional tourism. A Cuba vacation provides an opportunity to explore this uniquely beautiful and captivating land and meet its friendly and open people.
