Take a step back in time and explore the island of Cuba, which is undoubtedly one of the most unique holiday destinations on the planet. Communist Cuba is akin to taking a step back to the 1950s; with the streets filled with classic Cadillacs and dazzling jazz and salsa music, it really is a feast for the senses. The capital city Havana is an urban experience unlike any other around the globe, with the streets lined with colonial buildings and the sidewalks teeming with bars welcoming dancing and offering cocktails day and night. The pace of life in Cuba really is slow – the country's trade embargo with the United States and its 1959 socialist revolution has led to its people making do with what they've had for a generation – and boy are they enjoying it. Now is the time to head to Cuba as the country is showing signs of beginning to open its arms towards the western world.
