Situated within the Caribbean, Cuba is a breath-taking island known for its stunning beaches, luscious forests and colourful, friendly culture. UNESCO has even recognised the country for its historic significance and outstanding beauty.
If you’re looking to head to Cuba on your travels, below you’ll discover 3 of the most naturally beautiful places you won’t want to miss.
Up until fairly recently, Baracoa has been pretty much undiscovered by tourists. This is largely down to its isolated location compared to some of the other more popular tourist hot-spots. What this means is that most of the area has been completely unspoilt, featuring striking idyllic beaches, cobblestone streets and lush cocoa trees. Baracoa is renowned for its white chocolate production, but perhaps the most unique benefit of this unspoilt destination is that it has one the last remaining untouched rainforests in the world.
Baracoa is also popular for those who love to hike. Its famous Yunque mountain draws in thousands of tourists each year who are keen to hike it’s flat, table-top surface. Standing 589 metres high, you’re guaranteed excellent views once you reach the top!
If you’re looking to enjoy a cultured getaway, you can’t beat Old Havana.
This naturally beautiful city centre is renowned for its tobacco production and famous Cuban cigars. The minute you arrive it feels like you’ve been transported to a different world. It’s also possible to find some great deals to the city centre.
Caya Coco is a stunning rural beach which famously starred in the novels “The Old Man and the Sea” and “Islands in the Stream” by Hemingway. It’s connected to the mainland via a bridge, but many tourists choose to travel there by air. While you’re there, it’s worth visiting the Parque Natural el Baga which is home to flamingos, crocodiles and turtles.
It offers a true, idyllic getaway which feels like an entirely different world, far away from your everyday worries.
Overall, Cuba boasts some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. A little piece of paradise, it offers something for everyone, especially those looking to really get away from it all.
