HAVANA- 3 nights

Colourful Havana is a perfect introduction to Cuba. Hotel Santa Isabel, which sits on Plaza de Armas in the heart of charming Old Havana, is a former palace, and was once home to Cuban aristocracy. Now a boutique hotel where you can live like a royal, it’s a favourite of US presidents and the Hollywood elite. The attractions of this intoxicating city are right on the doorstep, from cobbled plazas flanked by colonial mansions to salsa and the mellow sounds of the Buena Vista Social Club and (of course) the classic cars- after learning more about them on a tour, enjoy dinner at La Guarida, one of Cuba’s most distinguished restaurants, and savour its unique atmosphere.
