WELCOME TO CUBA
Cuba is culture, nature, history, magic and traditions. Trapped in a time warp and reeling from an economic embargo that has grated for more than half a century, this is a country where you can wave goodbye to everyday assumptions and expect the unexpected. The Pearl of the Antilles is the result of the blend of multiple cultures, fusion of races and customs that gave birth to one of the most unique and fascinating Caribbean destinations.
We will try not to miss the carnivals, charangas, the parrandas, the countryside parties and the patron saint’s days, when you’ll have the chance of tasting the typical Cuban gastronomy made of Buñuelos, Tamales and Roasted Pork, always accompanied by a good coffee, a Cuba Libre, a Daiquiri, Mojito or Piña Colada drink.
The revolution marks a before and an after in the history of Cuba. The triumph of January 1st, 1959 meant a new beginning for Cuba and made its culture one of the most prolific ones in Latin America.
Havana, the capital, is a lovely mix of pre-revolutionary buildings, arts and culture and exciting nightlife. We will start our visit here to learn about the nation’s past and continue our trip to Varadero that offers the decadent delights of a purely relaxing vacation on glorious white-sand beaches to spend our beach volleyball camp there.
