Heavy on the rum, and full of spices, fruits and sugar, if you want to know what Cuba is like, take a sip of one of its cocktails.
Honeymoons and holidays to this infectious country are a whirlwind of culture, old splendour and beautiful beaches. Start in Havana and feel like you are stepping into a time when men would while away the afternoon smoking cigars outside cafes, salsa-dancing couples would spontaneously fill the streets with their incredible moves and you could cruise along the coast in a fantastically bright 1950s classic car. Stay in the stylish Hotel Saratoga, as with its rooftop pool and spectacular bedroom views over the Capitol building and beyond, this central boutique hotel is the ideal place to discover Cuba’s colonial glamour.
With the pulse of Havana running through you, it’s time to explore further afield, whether the cobblestone roads and pastel-coloured houses of the 16th century town, Trinidad, is your idea of heaven or the coffee-scented countryside of Viñales is. Dust off your camera and take snapshots of quintessential Cuba, capturing its classic cars and dilapidated colonial buildings on film forever.
To round off your heady Cuban honeymoon, think about the long stretch of northern islands off of Cuba’s coast, home to powdered sugar sands and blue waters fringed by swaying palm trees. If you can’t decide which island, we’d recommend Cayo Santa Maria, with its all-inclusive luxury hotels, pristine shores and laid-back way of life. The penultimate chapter in your romantic honeymoon, stay in the super-sleek, adult-only Royalton Cayo Santa Maria and order that perfect cocktail that swirls all of Cuba’s beauty into one delicious sip.
