Cuba is famous the world over for its long and rich history, its colourful urban centres, and some of the best beaches on the planet. Brightsun Travel offers year round cheap holidays to Cuba, so that you can experience one of the best known countries in the Caribbean this year. Start in the capital city of Havana, a World Heritage site, and you could explore the country’s Spanish colonial heritage and beautiful historical buildings in its Old City. From Havana you could venture into Cuba’s mountains and forests, like the protected forests of the Peninsula de Zapata, and the Gran Parque Nacional Sierra Maestra, where you’ll find the former home of the country’s revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro. Or head to the central town of Trinidad, also a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you could take a trip back in time, and roam old cobbled streets lined with colourful buildings, and watch the town come alive at night with live music and alfresco dining. From Trinidad you could venture into the Sierra del Escambray, or the Escambray Mountains, and go on spectacular hiking adventures.
