Dance the night away with other young travellers in Old Havana, mingle with the locals at overnight homestays, sample the local rum and cigars, connect to the salsa culture on the dance floor, move those hips to incredible live music, explore colonial Havana's alleyways, laze under the Caribbean sun.
For too many people, Cuba is nothing more than a beach resort. That’s crazy; the island practically buzzes with energy and you should do likewise—get moving. Journey through the culture-soaked streets of Trinidad and Old Havana for your fill of drinking and dancing. The music here pours out of open windows. Hit the beach and explore the outdoors then connect with the locals in homestays and make friends for life as you hit the sites with other young people like yourself. Boring? Impossible!
