5 Reasons to Book Your Flights to Havana NOW
POSTED BY Mavy | February 18, 2016
You can easily get flights to Havana from London, or any part of the UK, for very reasonable prices – making Cuba one of the best places for anyone to consider as their next perfect holiday destination. Not only is this prime destination budget friendly, it’s also an iconic place with lots of things to see and experience. Need more reasons to go to Cuba? Here’s more:
Prices are still low
But not for long! As restrictions on American travellers ease, prices are predicted to surge.
Experience unadulterated Cuban culture
Whether it is the salsa, the rum, the cigars or the beautiful but crumbling Spanish constructions, Cuba is all set to lose its classical Latin charm very soon. More and more Cubans are inclined to pursue better paying options than stringing their guitars in the town square and earning a few pesos. You are sure to see modern buildings in place of the historic neighbourhood and the local cuisine will go unseen amidst the McDonalds and Starbucks that will open up soon in Cuba.
See Cuba before it gets 'Americanised'
No chains: Starbucks, McDonald’s and the like! Currently, about 90% of restaurants that cater to tourists are run by large state-owned corporations. An alternative dining option is the paladar: private homes that have been given permission to serve foreign tourists that are small and authentic.
Enjoy the classic cars
The era of Cuba's classic American cars may come to an end. With economic sanctions likely to be lifted, the Cuban people may soon be able to afford to upgrade to newer vehicles meaning car enthusiasts will no longer be in awe of its impressive collection of relics such as Chevy, Buick and Cadillac from the 1940s and 50s.
You can definitely switch off!
About 27% of Cuba's population has access to the internet so for travellers looking for a place to disconnect, Cuba is an obvious choice. Although some might dread losing internet access, the country has so much more to offer to keep you occupied and entertained.
