great location for:

The capital of Cuba since 1607, Havana is one of most enchanting and fascinating cities in the world. Old Havana, the historic centre of the city, preserves a wealth of Spanish Colonial architecture and has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Around 2 hours to the west of Havana, the Viñales Valley makes a fascinating constrast to the city. This sleepy rural area still sees tobacco and others crops farmed by traditional agriculture methods and is home to stunning limestone scenery.

Nearby, Las Terrazas is a unique biosphere mountain community where secondary forest was planted on the deforested hills to avoid erosion and is now a mecca for those interested in eco-tourism, walking and bird-watching.
