An incessant flood of magnificent colour, fascinating people and enchanting Caribbean charm, Cuba is everything it is thought to be and much more.
An incessant flood of magnificent colour, fascinating people and enchanting Caribbean charm, Cuba is everything it is thought to be and much more. It is a country that is in love with life, and this love is reflected in the bustle of Havana street life, the pastel hues of the Trinidad streets and the silky white beaches and soporific seas of the Bay of Pigs.
From the otherworldly feel of the Cuban moist forests, to the cheerful classic cars which line the roads, Cuba has carved out its own identity against that of its nearby Caribbean neighbours. Cuban music, dance and cinema has been praised and exported across the world, while the history of Cuba as a communist state, a Spanish colony and as a Mesoamerican settlement is a wondrous living tapestry of intrigue which influenced by characters such as Ché Guevara and Fidel Castro.
Cuba is home to an excellent rail service, run by the government. There are some exceptional rail highlights here, include the wonderful Hershey Train, Cuba's only surviving electric line. Also worth mentioning is the simply exquisite railroad style steam train which runs through the astonishingly beautiful Valley of the Sugar Mills.
