ROL Cruise recommends…
Cuba is a country rich in historical knowledge, some of its colonial cities haven’t changed or adapted in thousands of years. Walk the streets of Havana which have lined the way for locals since the times of pirates and spot the colourful cars that have made this location famous since their entry in the 50’s. A country splashed in colour, dignified traditions and close-knit communities, a trip to Cuba will be one full of memories and magical moments.
A taste of Cuban spice
If Cuban food could be described in one word it would be ‘spicey’. Like Jamaica, Cuba is known for its food that packs a punch and tingles the taste buds. Head to a local food market and try out some traditional curries, stews and meat dishes, simply cooked and served with rice and beans for a taste of the real Cuba. Experience the heart of Cuban life and get a taste for the tradition and culture that is a way of life in the country.
A tipple to tickle the taste buds
Rum has been made in Cuba since the introduction of the sugar cane back in the 1400s and is still one of the biggest producers of the liquid gold to this day. This popular spirit is held in high regard in the country and is still at the core of its identity to this day. A visit to Cuba isn’t complete without a trip to taste some of the best-made and most famous rums in the world.
Beautiful beaches galore
Being situated in the Caribbean, something Cuba isn’t short of is stunning, white sandy beaches and secluded coves perfect for escaping the crowds. Enjoy a sunbathe on the shores of the crystal-clear waters or head into the depths for a diving or snorkelling session to see what lies beneath the surface. A whole new world awaits those who break the surface of the Caribbean waters.
