Five Must-see Places In Cuba

Be transported back to the 1950s when you visit Cuba, one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. Smoke a Cuban cigar while driving around in a vintage convertible car with Spanish music blasting from the radio. Then park in front of a row of colorful historic buildings and snap a few selfies for your Instagram feed. This is a sample of what Cuba vacations are like. That is just the beginning of what Cuba has to offer. We have put together a list of five must-see places in Cuba, one of the most popular vacation spots in the world.

Cayo Coco 

Caya Coco is wildly popular for many reasons, including beautiful beaches, elegant pink flamingoes, and luxury all-inclusive resorts. A bridge connects the Cayo Coco all-inclusive resorts area to mainland Cuba or takes a flight into the Jardines del Rey Airport. Don’t miss a visit to the Parque Natural el Bagá where you can see crocodiles, turtles, and more pink exotic flamingoes. There are heaps of water sports to try including kite surfing, diving, and swimming with dolphins. The food at the Cayo Coco all-inclusive resorts is excellent, and if you need a change, there are also many nice dining establishments all around Cayo Coco. A fun fact to know is that Cayo Coco is named after the white Ibis, which is locally called the coco bird. If you are searching for Cayo Coco vacations we have flights to take you there.

Old Havana

Many areas in Cuba are designated UNESCO World Heritage sites and the capital of Havana is full of them. Highlights are the 16th-century Spanish colonial architecture, including the awe-inspiring Castillo de la Real Fuerza and the baroque Cathedral de San Cristóbal Plaza Vieja. The Havana seaside is picture-postcard perfect and a nice area for a stroll. While in the city you will see festive dancing and live entertainment at restaurants, bars and even in the street. Book a guided tour of Cuban cigar factories and go shopping to pick up colorful souvenirs for friends and family back home. When in Cuba, you can’t miss seeing Old Havana, the heart of this charming Caribbean country.


Varadero on the Hicacos Peninsula is a vibrant beach resort town with plenty to see and do. Varadero all-inclusive resorts are popular with travelers who like to have their accommodation, food and drinks, and other services all packaged up at an affordable price. In Varadero, the beaches are legendary with amazing sunrises and sunsets. Take a walk along the main beachfront road with plenty of public beach access points between cafes, bars, and restaurants. Enjoy a bite to eat before diving into the blue waters or lying on the white sandy shores. You will love Varadero and it is one place in Cuba that you have to see.


Trinidad makes our list of five must-see places in Cuba for its historical architecture and sites, which are so many that the whole city has been designated as a UNESCO site. Many say it’s one of the best-preserved colonial cities in all of the Caribbean. The old town of Trinidad is vehicle-free, which enhances the old-world atmosphere. Wear comfortable walking shoes that can handle hours of walking around the bumpy cobblestone roads. At Plaza Mayor you can see the Church of the Holy Trinity – Iglesias de la Santisima Trinidad. It was rebuilt in 1892 and houses a wood statue of Jesus from the 18th century. There are many museums, shops, restaurants, and cafes to explore and you could blissfully get lost for days roaming around this most beautiful city. 

On the outskirts of Trinidad are Ancon Beach and Maria Aguilar Beach, which both are beautiful beaches to laze in the sun.


The lovely city of Cienfuegos has a European influence reflected in the stately architecture and lifestyle enjoyed by the locals. Often referred to as the Paris of Cuba, the city is a unique part of Cuba that you don’t want to miss. From the charming old town lined with shops and art galleries to the scenic harbor area, Cienfuegos is a place that is easy to fall in love with. It’s interesting to know Cienfuegos is a center for the sugar, coffee, and tobacco trades and there are many tours based around the thriving industries. 

Cienfuegos is also well-known for water sports and activities like diving, snorkeling, sailing, fishing, and swimming. The impressive underwater shipwrecks are a big drawcard for divers, along with caves and underwater labyrinths. There are many diving companies in the area, so you can find the best-hidden sites under the ocean. We say beautiful Cienfuegos should be on everyone’s travel radar because there’s nowhere else like it.

Cuba can be seen on the world map where the northern Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean meet. This tiny place is full of fun and excitement for travelers and holidaymakers. The culture is festive and colorful, locals are friendly and the food and climate are amazing. All around Cuba, you will enjoy a rich and diverse culture, pristine beaches, warm climate, and the most delicious food. As a holiday destination, it’s no surprise that Cuba is so popular.
