Cuba Holidays' travel agents go on a fam trip to get reacquainted with the island

We at Cuba Holidays don't just work hard to keep you in the loop on everything Cuba and update you with the latest news of the island as they come, to ensure that we also provide you with the best Cuba holidays and most authentic travel experiences, we travel there and inspect Cuba's hotel facilities and attractions.

That's exactly what a team of travel agents from Cuba Holidays did on a recent fam trip to Havana; rediscover a city that most of them already know well by embarking on a fun, culturally-enriching journey where they toured its streets, both on foot and riding on four-wheeled vintage beauties, ate delicious local fare, drank their fair share of mojitos, took group photos on landmark attractions and visited the city's best, newest and most iconic hotels.

The video starts with our travel agents departing the Melia Habana Hotel onboard two beautiful classic cars to the cry of "Havana". The first destination is El Bosque de la Habana and even though the shot is very quick, you can tell where they are by the very distinctive green drapery behind the agent that approaches to the camera to say "Habana, muy bien!". Back in their American yank tanks they passed the famous Colon Cemetery (Cementerio Cristobal Colon), a rare landmark of its own, and continued towards the Revolution Square (Plaza de la Revolucion) where they enjoyed a guided visit before taking the road again.

Next, they stopped at the John Lennon Park in the Vedado neighbourhood, where agents took a moment to sit next to the legendary British singer and former Beatle's lifesize sculpture on a bench. Group photo done, it was time to head to Hotel Nacional de Cuba, an iconic 1920s property famous for having hosted a varied array of international celebrities throughout the years and for its renowned exclusivity and luxury standards. After viewing the rooms and perusing its hall of fame, the group headed to the hotel's scenic gardens overlooking the sea for yet another group photo.

The next stop was Iberostar Parque Central, probably the city's favourite hotel among visitors, with consistent popularity throughout the year and where they were greeted by a live Cuban music performance at the grand lobby, checked out the rooms and proceeded to take in magnificent views from the rooftop terrace and rooftop pool.

Inching ever closer to the Capitol Building (El Capitolio), yet another famous recently restored city landmark, the agents visited the Saratoga hotel, a luxury boutique property made famous by its celebrity guests (from Madonna to Beyonce) and whose romantic appeal and artistic touches enchant visitors.

Then it was time to inspect Havana's newest luxury gem, the recently opened Iberostar Grand Packard Hotel, set to redefine the city's luxury standards along with the Gran Habana Manzana Kempinski, which by the way was their very last stop and where agent also toured rooms and facilities like its spa and stunning rooftop infinity pool.

All in all, a very scenic and rewarding trip with plenty of colour pops and blissfully sunny weather to match. We hope you enjoy our video as much as our travel agents enjoyed Havana!
