Ah Cuba. With its white palm-fringed beaches and crystal-clear waters that gently wash away your stresses, it’s the ultimate Caribbean getaway.

Tucked away between the Bay of Cárdenas and the Straits of Florida, you will find the stunning Varadero. Considered the crown jewel of Cuba, with more than 20km of pure white sandy beaches, for years it was considered an elite resort.

Similarly, Cayo Saetía, once a private game reserve, can now be visited via the mainland. Inhabited by a variety of animals such as zebra, antelope, buffalos and several ostriches, this stunning landmass can be explored to its fullest by hopping on a Jeep excursion.
