A Brief Look At The Island Of Cuba

Cheap Holidays Cuba Banner

With the largest population of all the {🌴 Caribbean Islands} having over 11 million people, the 🏝 island covers a whopping 745 miles in length.

Christopher Columbus landed and claimed this beautiful island in 1492 for the – Kingdom of Spain.

The current Cuban government, previously led by Fidel Castro, is considered in the natural world as “authoritarian”. Socialism has controlled the country for over 50 years and certainly has taken their toll on the economy and much more.

Tourism is very important for Cuba and recent lifts on United States restrictions are now easing, making the country accessible to Americans.

Holquin – Best Pick Destination

The Best Cuba Vacation Packages

Guardalavaca beach in Holguin Cuba

When our family selected an all inclusive vacations Cuba holiday package, we decided on – Holquin. Located further south from Veradero but still on the north end of the island, Holquin is a busy city with a population of over 300,000.

✈ Frank Pais International Airport  is conveniently located as that of Veradero for vacationers.

Stunning Beaches

Holguin Cuba Beach

Located a short distance from the City is a lovely stretch of beach complete with coral reefs located right offshore. 

A snorkeler’s delight! 🤿 

It’s called Guardalavaca Beach, known for excellent swimming in crystal clear water and beautiful soft sand on shore. Explore amazing coral reefs which are easily accessible for most anyone right offshore.

What more could you ask for! 😀

There are just a handful of resorts in the area to choose from, for your all inclusive resort vacation.  This is why I personally selected Holquin, because of the area being smaller, quieter and the coral reefs offshore for snorkeling.

We were not disappointed!


It tends to be 🌬 windy and cooler in January at times, which we did in fact experience for several days.  Although it was sunny and clear skies the entire time, the wind did prevent us from enjoying water sports on many occasions.

One can never predict the weather, but I was forewarned by friends and they were right!

I have included just a taste of two of the wonderful beach resort areas in Cuba for you to think about.

Take A Cuba Cigar Factory Tour

Cuba Cigars

I am sure when most of us think of Cuba, we think of those Cuban Cigars that everyone rants and raves about worldwide.  It really is a unique experience for the whole family to include a trip to a Cigar Factory.

It’s amazing to watch people sitting for hours on end, hand rolling fine Cigars for the world to enjoy.

No machines, no robots, no high tech factories one would expect in the natural world.  Just happy people of all ages, sitting at their little desks rolling tobacco with fine precision, into world re-known hand crafted Cuban Cigars.

Cigars can be purchased on site and at very reasonable prices one would never expect.

A Cigar Factory Tour is a must see when vacationing anywhere in Cuba!


Beware of those Fake Cigar Vendors while in Cuba.  Be sure to check out my detailed post on 🚬 Cuban Cigar Scams and be sure you are purchasing authentic Cuban Cigars!
