Location Havana
In

Havana, the capital city, major port, and leading commercial centre of Cuba, is famed for its colonial history and vibrant culture.The city is home to exquisite Spanish colonial architecture, classic American cars, irresistible rhythms of mambo and a confusing jigsaw of grand avenues and cobbled streets.

A stroll around Habana Vieja, Old Havana, quickly reveals the audacious Latin atmosphere within the imposing coastal fortifications and intimate, traffic-free squares. At its centre, the buildings reflect the city’s vivacious architectural mix: the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, the iconic National Capitol Building, the Baroque Catedral de San Cristóbal, and the Plaza Vieja are all worth the effort to uncover.

The art culture is one of the city’s biggest revelations, and Cuban creativity is accessible through the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, the Fusterlandia public art project and the Fábrica de Arte Cubano, which champions the movement of Havana’s more contemporary art scene. Show lessThe city is awash with experimentation, exemplified by the explosion of uber cool cafes and Bohemian bars.Columbus believed this was the most beautiful land he’d ever seen, and it’s hard not to agree given Cuba’s 2,000 miles of tropical coastline, lush mountains and some 300 beaches that melt into azure seas.

Location St Maarten
In
Out

The world’s smallest island shared between two nations – its 16 miles square (and more developed) southern part is Dutch and the northern, French – hilly St Maarten in the Windwards is a dual personality setting of absorbing contrasts. Philipsburg, built on a sand bar, is the old capital and still preserves some attractive colonial architecture, though the island’s enticing beaches, excellent restaurants, and shops stocked with duty-free bargains will probably detain you longer!

Date 25/02/2022
Location Antigua
In
Out

Whatever rugged Antigua may lack in tropical scenery the island more than makes up for with what are some of the best watersports conditions found anywhere in the Carribbean, and 365 beaches (‘one for each day of the year’ say the Antiguans) to enjoys! For many, too, the great bay of stunning English Harbour and historic Nelson’s Dockyard (Britain’s West Indies naval base now restored to its 18th century prime) will prove a magnet.

Date 26/02/2022
Location St Kitts
In
Out

Adjust to the easygoing pace of St Kitts’ dignified little capital, then check out its imposing cathedral before lingering over the purchase of attractive batiks. Ascending past the lush sugar-cane fields to take in the sweeping views from the 17th century Brimstone Hill Fortress – the ‘Gibraltar of the West Indies’ whose ramparts recall Anglo-French battles fought here long ago.

Date 27/02/2022
Location St Lucia
In
Out

What St Lucia’s little capital may lack in sophistication it more than compensates for in its colourful Creole mood. Wander amid the lively street market before exploring this most scenic of the Caribbean islands, whose green mountains are draped in lush vegetation, and whose landmarks include the twin peaks of the Pitons rising sheer from the sea, and the steaming sulphur springs of the ‘drive-in’ La Soufriere volcano.

Date 28/02/2022
Location Grenada
In
Out

Grenada is the ‘Spice Island’ of cinnamon, nutmeg, mace and vanilla plantations, dense with lush rainforests, and was the setting for the film Island in the Sun. St George’s must surely be the Caribbean’s prettiest capital, almost Mediterranean-looking with its picturesque buildings (some dating from the 18th century), steep cobbled streets and stepped alleys rising as if part of a terraced amphitheatre set amid the wooded hill slopes that surround the harbour. Lovely Grand Anse beach – within easy reach – is not to be missed.

Date 01/03/2022
Location Trinidad
In
Out

In exotic Port of Spain you’ll meet architecture from around the world – from Hindu temples to gingerbread rococo. For Trinidad, home of Carnival and the steel band, is an astonishing melting pot of peoples and cultures – African, Oriental, Indian, European and New World. Birds are a major attraction here, too, and this large island offers a secure habitat for over 400 colourful species, most famous among them the glorious scarlet ibis.

Location Barbados
In
Out

An island that blends the exotic mood of the Caribbean with a hint of home (it was British for over 350 years). Here rum punch and calypso meet afternoon tea and cricket in perfect harmony, and Bridgetown’s Trafalgar Square is older than our own. With over 30 miles of beaches, 3, 000 hours of sunshine a year, welcoming ‘Bajan’ smiles, excellent shopping in the port and flying fish for lunch, Barbados is for many British visitors the quintessential Caribbean island!
