Enjoy Cuba like no other

Cuba is like no other. A ravishing island jewel basking in the languid tropics. However Cuba is a maverick, a non-conformist, a rebel ticking to its own beat with a style and charm all of its own.

The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

It's far greater size and fifty year Communist project are just two of the more obvious differentiators from its more diminutive neighbours. The sheer physical beauty of the island, the warmth of the Cubans themselves, the throbbing beat of salsa, the complex plot of tropical communism all make for a heady cocktail. But a word of warning - Cuba's seductiveness is hard to resist and rarely is one visit quite enough.

Cuba and her story is familiar to us all through Che Guevara and Fidel, the Bay of Pigs, cigars, vintage cars, mohitos, Buena Vista Social Club and Ernest Hemingway. Yet as enduring as these stereotypes are they miss the real Cuban story.

A country in transition - a 50 year old communist dictatorship tentatively loosening the country's bindings and even re-engaging with its old adversary just across the water, who sought to assassinate Fidel Castro over 600 times. Cuba still doesn’t have the Internet, but a country at long last encouraging individual free enterprise and whose well of artistic talent is being given full rein.

It's heady times for Cuba and Cubans alike, who have been patiently waiting literally decades for this opportunity, and are now firmly grasping it with both hands. Go now.
