Cuba is unlike most other vacation destinations, with a revolutionary past, great beauty and wonderfully friendly people, it’s likely to turn out to be one of the best vacations you ever had.
Cheer at a baseball game
No visit to Cuba is complete without an introduction to Cuba’s sporting obsession – baseball. The most effective way to expertise the fanatical devotion that Cubans got to baseball is to experience a game throughout the Serie Nacional de Béisbol. Cuban baseball doesn’t have the accoutrements of American baseball; there are not any luxury seats or large screens. All you have got is gifted players and baseball-crazy fans. You’ll be transported to a time once baseball was close to the sport.
Kick back in the Varadero
The Varadero region of Cuba is world celebrated for its natural beauty: powder sand beaches, glassy blue waters and excellent climate. These qualities come together to make this region a grand tourist site to rival anything that Barbados or the Bahamas may have. Since Varadero is in Cuba, it tends to be far cheaper than any of the better-known Caribbean destinations. Varadero has plenty of inexpensive luxury resorts too.
Go dolphin swimming
Few experiences can rival the joy and connection to nature that you’ll feel swimming in the ocean with dolphins. Cuba has plenty of dolphin swim services that give you classes on how to connect with dolphins and how to get them to carry you through the water. If you’re in Cuba, dolphin swimming is an experience that you can’t miss.
Take a cruise through the Miramar River
For an island as small as Cuba, the Miramar River is a disproportionately large watercourse. A cruise along the river can be a wonderful way to view both urban and rural Cuba. A cruise only lasts a day, and can be immensely enjoyable.
Explore the architecture of Old Havana
The trade embargo against Cuba has meant that the country permanently lives in the 60s. Nowhere is the time warp more apparent than in La Habana Vieja, or Old Havana. Covering 15 districts, the area is so thoroughly frozen in the 60s, it can instantly transport you to a time when Art Deco architecture was current, and cars on the street had a sculpted form.
