The Express recommends six things you must see and do in Cuba now

Cuba has always been a country stacked with gorgeous landscapes, stunning architecture and vibrant culture, and as relations with America continue to thaw it is likely that Cuban tourism will continue to grow and grow.

Indeed, it is thought that more than 10 million American citizens alone will visit the country on an annual basis from now on, so now is as good a time as any to pay Cuba a visit and enjoy this beautiful island in all its natural glory before the trappings of the tourist trade take hold.

When you do take your trip, here are six things that the Daily Express say you must see and do:

Six things to see in Cuba now before it changes forever

  1. Capture Vinales Valley

    We all love taking a snap or two of our adventures while abroad, and the sumptuous Vinales Valley offers holiday-makers some of the most stunning vistas imaginable. Enjoy the sunset or take in the early morning mist; the scenes are remarkable.

  2. Enjoy Santiago de Cuba

    Santiago de Cuba is the island's second largest city and the former capital....and there is so much to see and do in this often forgotten metropolis. Enjoy the views across the bay, take in a display of Bacardi family art, listen to some of the local musical talents or why not even try some salsa dancing?

  3. Sample Haunting Architecture

    The town of San Miguel de los Banos used to be a thriving hub on the island, however it has since fallen on hard times and much of the area is now a haunting ghost town. However, the locals are amongst the most friendly people you could ever wish to meet, and will make you feel right at home.

  4. Meet A Guevara Family Member

    You may already know a little bit about Che Guevara, who was one of the key figures in Fidel Castro's revolution on the island in the mid 1900s. Now Che's son, Ernesto, offers tours of Cuba on Harley Davidson motorbikes. This is a great opportunity to see the island in a different light.

  5. Have a Gentle Stroll

    The promenade at Malecon is surely one of the most beautiful parts of Cuba, and it offers a tranquil atmosphere in which to enjoy the island's unique sunrise and sunsets.

  6. Smoke an Authentic Cuban Cigar

    Cuban cigars are renowned as some of the finest in the world, but unfortunately the ‘authentic' versions you find in many countries around the globe simply aren't as good as the real thing. Enjoy the true favour of Cuba whilst on native soil.
