Private Tours To CUBA

Private Tours To Cuba – Cuba might just be a synonym for drama. The largest body of land in the Caribbean has been at the centre of intrigue for centuries, from the late 1800s when the US flexed its colonial muscles to its iconic revolution in 1959. Years of isolation have preserved ancient architecture from destruction even as it crumbles. But this intoxicating nation is no snoozy time wrap,it’s a raucous stew of African, Caribbean and Latin culture with manic and melodic rhythms that lure fans from around the globe. Change, when it inevitably comes, will forever alter this bizarre, beautiful and beguiling nation. In the meantime Cuba is unlike any other nation, from its hulking colonial relics to its shambolic cities and its palm-backed beaches.
