Where are you going this summer? Have you ever been so close to your summer holiday and yet you had no idea where to go and what to do? There are so many different choices out there that yes, it might be quite overwhelming to choose just one, so we more often than not settle for a destination we have already seen and liked; playing it safe, so to say. However, forget about all of those destinations, and think of only one – Cuba. This amazing country is spectacular for so many different reasons, and you simply have to see it at least once in your lifetime. And why not now? Take a look at some of the reasons why Cuba is the place to go.
As Cuba is a popular tourist destination, you can find a plethora of amazing resorts where you can go and set your mind free. Bearing in mind that the beaches will be crystal clear with white sand and navy blue water, this simply is an ideal vacation. However, you don’t have to visit a resort in order to find yourself a beautiful beach. Some are secluded yet mind-bogglingly beautiful, and this is exactly why The Caribbean is the perfect place to go during summer.
There are two people in the world – the ones who like to go somewhere where the beach is nice and that’s all they think about, and the people who want beautiful beaches but with some extra authenticity on the side. Well, if you’re in the latter group, then you have just another reason to visit Cuba. This is simply more than just a tourist summer destination, as it would be quite a shame (not to mention a sin) to come here and not see the way locals live. You might get a bit sad when you see how poor this country is, but then again you are helping it by staying there during the summer, so why would you feel bad? Instead, take a walk through the streets of the town you find yourself in, and embrace all the differences and colors that you see.
Even though this is not something that you are looking for while making plans for your ideal summer destination, it’s always good when you know that you can be safe there – at least when your health is concerned. Cuba is not only a summer tourist destination, but it’s also a big destination for medical tourism. The health care in this country is superb – all the hospitals are owned by the government, and they offer free vaccination and free healthcare to all their people. This is why you might also want to consider it if you need dialysis on holiday in Cuba. All visitors can enjoy medical tours and use their perks. Also, most hotels and hospitals have the provision of separate rooms for people who opt to go there for the purposes of medical tourism.
Havana ooh na na
Havana is definitely one of the reasons why you should visit Cuba. It’s not for nothing that Camila Cabello’s single became such a global hit – we are all in love with Havana just a bit. If you want to step back in time, and explore the mixture of the colonial and Art Deco, Havana is the place you want to go. The most prominent vehicle in the streets is the baby-blue 1950s Buicks, so your Instagram account will definitely be on fire here. Apart from visiting the things each tourist must see in Havana, you can visit one of the many flashy and flamboyant clubs, such as Club Tropicana or Hemingway’s favorite, El Floridita.
Time for rainforests
Once you hit an exotic destination for your summer holiday, it’s the beach you’ll be seeing of the most. However, if you visit Cuba, then you might get the chance to see rainforests as well, and thus make your summer vacation all the more interesting. Allocate one day to find a guide and take a walk through El Nicho National Park, and explore all the animals and the wildlife that lives there. It’s quite astonishing. On top of that, you can also take a dip (or a swim) in one of the many freshwater pools and experience how pretty the El Nicho waterfalls are.
What about the history?
And finally, how can you visit Cuba and not feel its very rich history? Cuba is not only known for its beaches, as it’s a place where important things happened and important people lived. Learn more about Che Guevara, understand more about cigars and Daiquiri, see all loved. The history of Cuba is unparalleled to any other, mostly because it’s a mixture of historical events and fun trivia that you will never find anywhere else – where did Ernest like to drink beer?
Convinced yet? If yes, make sure to book your tickets as soon as possible. If you’re not convinced yet, you might want to watch a small video presentation on Cuba – perhaps that will open your eyes!
