There are so many awesome places to visit in Cuba.
Whether you're planning a rejuvenating weekend sojourn, or attending a business conference or music festival in the historic country (and want to visit a few scenic spots as well), Cuba mesmerizes.
Among the must-visit top attractions when spending your Cuban holidays, or “Cubays” as we shall refer to it here, are the cities brimming with history.
To get a feel of life during the time of great revolutionary leaders and rebels and some of the favorite haunts of famous people like Ernest Hemingway, visit Havana.
The pulsating city is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. Marvel at the Plaza de Catedral in Old Havana, and see Monumento Ernesto Che Guevara, bronze statue erected as homage to the leader.
There's a charmed feel offered by some of the most famous hotels with Elizabethan architectural touches in Havana.
Travelers who have the time and want to enjoy some marvelous sand and sea while in Cuba may travel via a scenic highway all the way to Varadero, which is 83 miles away from Havana.
Go spelunking to make your Cuban holidays doubly memorable. Apart from exploring caves, there are many ways to commune with nature, like swimming with dolphins or diving.
Another place worth visiting if you’re with your family and you want wholesome fun and enjoy the unspoilt beauty of beaches is Camaguey. Soak in history and bask in one of the finest landscaped white sand beaches like Cayo Coco. The Playa Coco resort is a stone’s throw from the most remarkable coral reefs.
Also worth checking out, if you're intent on not missing out on the experience of seeing the most important cities in Cuba, is Cienfuegos at the foot of the Escambray Mountains.
Take a stroll along Jose Marti Park (named after the father of Cuban independence) and be awed by the architectural wonders of the cathedrals, theaters, and colonial fortresses.
While in Cienfuegos, savor good quality eats like seafood after exploring the most famous buildings around town to complete your Cuban holidays.
