Not so long ago, Cuba was a pretty low profile destination, perhaps suffering somewhat because of its communist status
(PRWeb UK) May 11, 2010
Once closed to the outside world, Cuba has opened its doors to tourism and people are flocking there in droves. The climate's fantastic, the people are wonderfully warm and friendly and everywhere you go the air is filled with music. The Caribbean provides a delightful backdrop to all this, and low cost flights to Cuba have made Cuba much more accessible.
“Not so long ago, Cuba was a pretty low profile destination, perhaps suffering somewhat because of its communist status,” comments cheap flights and low cost holidays site dealchecker.co.uk Ecommerce Director Troy Collins. “But in recent years the public’s acceptance of Cuba as a fantastic holiday destination alongside its Caribbean neighbours now means that the magic, music, mystery and romance of Cuba are as likely option as any other in the region.”
Cuba holidays deliver much more than sun, sea and sand. Because the country was a communist stronghold for so many years, there's a real flavour of the 1950s. The cars, the architecture... in some respects it's a country lost in time, trapped in the mid-20th century. In other respects it's a thoroughly modern, vibrant place and the tourist facilities, most of which are brand new or only a few years old, are as good as you'll find anywhere in the Caribbean.
The combination of old and new, modern and traditional is a highly attractive one and this year dealchecker.co.uk has noticed a distinct rise in the popularity of Cuba holidays and low cost flights to Cuba. “We've been slightly surprised by the demand we've experienced so far” says Collins. “Perhaps it's the low cost of flights and the bargain holidays available, or perhaps the news about Cuba's unique character and flavour is spreading. Whatever the reason, 2010 is looking like Cuba's biggest year yet.”
