Cuba combines cities full of heritage and ideal beaches in a perfect proportion, turning it into the ideal place to travel as a family, as a couple or with friends.
In the case of the most vibrant cities of Cuba, it is necessary to refer to Havana. With a fascinating historic centre (Old Havana) declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982, this city is an ideal destination to visit colonial buildings, monuments as iconic as the Three Kings Castle of El Morro or the Capitol, corners like the Plaza de la Revolución or the Malecón ... At nightfall, you can relax or savour the best Cuban rum in such emblematic places as La Bodeguita del Medio or El Floridita. In all three Iberostar hotels in Havana -the Havana Riviera By Iberostar, the Iberostar Parque Central and the Iberostar Grand Packard- you will have all these landmarks at your fingertips.
Another city that you cannot miss is Santiago de Cuba. Founded in 1515, its streets exhibit numerous colonial, baroque, neoclassical and art déco buildings, which gives it an eclectic and very attractive appearance. Special mention should be made of the castle of San Pedro de la Roca or the coffee plantations, also declared World Heritage Site. Moreover, do not forget that this city is the cradle of some of the most international Cuban rhythms, such as the traditional trova or the bolero. If you want to discover all these treasures, there’s nothing better than booking your room at one of the Iberostar hotels in Santiago de Cuba: the Iberostar Casa Granda, the Iberostar Imperial and the Iberostar San Félix.
There is also much to see in Trinidad, in the province of Sancti Spíritus: the Manaca-Iznaga tower, the Valle de los Ingenios, the Ancón and María Aguilar beaches, the Caburní waterfall, the Calaveras cave, the Zaza lake ... Choose among all these proposals during your stay at the Iberostar Grand Trinidad.
Finally, the quiet town of Gibara, in the province of Holguín, is one of the best kept secrets in Cuba. In addition to having one of the best-preserved old town centres in the country, with interesting colonial buildings, it also has peaceful beaches in its surroundings, such as Playa Caletones or Playa Pesqueros. Enjoy staying at one of the best hotels in Gibara!
