Note: Although now on the verge of change, one of Cuba’s most attractive traits is its lack of mass tourism. This is reflected in the authentic & traditional hotels still to be found throughout Cuba. While offering all the facilities and services a visitor could want, it is important to be aware that the standards of food & accommodation available is of a different benchmark to the rest of the world, adding to the irresistible appeal of this amazing country.
