Having had her fill of the hustle and bustle of Havana, travel blogger Emily Kidd recently shared her experiences of nearby Playa Jibacoa on her personal website, seehertravel.com. While not blessed with the best of weather during her visit, Kidd still discovered an idyllic retreat with pristine beaches, fossilised coral and miles of picturesque landscape for any budding adventurer to explore.

If you’re fed up with the pace of life in urban Cuba, why not get out of the main tourist destinations and enjoy a more authentic holiday experience in Playa Jibacoa? Located less than an hour away from the heart of Havana, the region couldn’t offer more of a contrast to the hustle and bustle of the island’s biggest city with its deserted beaches, mountainous terrain and outstanding natural beauty.

Of course, you don’t just have to take our word for it, as travel blogger Emily Kydd recently wrote up an account of her visit to Playa Jibacoa on her blog at seehertravel.com to shed further light on what the quiet retreat has to offer. There she explained that while lacking in amenities like cafes and shops, Playa Jibacoa was the perfect place to enjoy some downtime and learn more about the locals.

Staying in a privately run casa particular, Kydd was given a great base from which to explore the region and a safe haven from the storms that swept the coast, with her gracious host even serving her up a whole parrotfish for dinner one evening. All in all, her account of the visit was a positive one written in her own distinctly humorous style as she recounted combing the beaches for Cuban coral.

Something more luxurious

That being said, if Kydd’s account of a region lacking in places for tourists to eat and drink goes against your idea of what constitutes an enjoyable holiday experience, don’t despair – Playa Jibacoa can also be enjoyed in style from the comfort of several luxurious all-inclusive resorts in the area.

Undoubtedly the most famous of these options is the Memories Jibacoa, a 19-acre plot that caters specifically for singles and couples who don’t want to be bothered by the boisterous youngsters that they might encounter at a more family-friendly destination. Featuring all-inclusive food and drink, private beaches, guided walks and even daily dance lessons, it really is the perfect place to unwind.

With prices starting at £869 per person, a stay at Memories Jibacoa certainly won’t come cheap; but if you want the ultimate in Cuban relaxation, it’s certainly worth the price. Failing that, you could always follow Kydd’s lead and explore the idyllic location on a budget while staying with a local family, but whichever way you do it, Playa Jibacoa is a must-see destination for any Cuban visitor.
