With some 330 days of sunshine per year, Cuba is a land full of light and heat. Ideal to cut the greyness of European winters. Don't worry during the wet season, the violent but brief storms quickly give way to the sun's rays.
A welcoming people :
Despite the material difficulties, the Cuban people remain dignified and will give you a warm welcome. Joie de vivre, vitality and humour remain the key words. From hitchhikers you meet on the roadside, to the guajiro who will teach you the secrets of tobacco or the simple passer-by you meet in the street, the conversation always starts quickly with the spirit of being very Latin. The existence of a vast network of rooms in the homes of the inhabitants also provides the opportunity to immerse oneself as closely as possible in the realities and daily life of the population, beyond the simplistic and easy clichés.
