Continuing onwards to Cuba, an overnight stay in the fable city of Havana is sure to be one of the undoubted highlights of your holiday.

You could coast through the streets and see the sights from one of Havana’s iconic classic cars; and catch a spectacular Tropicana cabaret show too. Show less

Here you can seek-out ancient ruins and incredible shrines dedicated to Ixchel; encounter native wildlife such as dolphins, iguanas and sea turtles amongst the idyllic waters and landscapes of spectacular national parks; or perhaps snorkel colourful coral reefs. A visit to Jamaica will then present you with an opportunity to delight in the intricate architecture, English heritage and bustling, quintessential markets of Falmouth – one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved Georgian towns – before your island-hopping concludes in the Dominican Republic.
