On our recent couples holiday to Sri Lanka, we decided that we needed at least one week away without the kids every few years.
We have a long list of places we wish to go to without the kids and Cuba is on the top of our list. Mainly because of the white Cuban beaches and crystal waters that I've stared at online for years but also because the culture really appeals to us as a couple. A few people we know have been and said that we'd love the Varadero resort on the north coast but I'd never heard of it so I had to do a bit of research. Is Varadero, Cuba a good destination for us as a couple?
During my research/window shopping, I came across loveholidays.com where they have a separate section for couples holiday ideas... guess what is on it?!... Yup Varadero. It states it's one of the largest resorts in the Caribbean and consists of all the things we need for our version of a perfect couples holiday. Adventure, relaxing beaches and activities to keep him happy whilst I sunbathe. Holidays in Varadero are a hugely popular choice for not only holidaymakers from the UK but also those within Europe, the USA and Canada as well, which means it's a thriving area for tourism. Our exertions are sorted too as it is only a 2 hour drive to the capital city of Havana where you're surrounded by amazing architecture, rum bars and cigar factories.... HELLO, get me on that plane now! Plus there's the nearby Plaza America which includes many high street names so my need for shopping is covered too.
There are plenty of offers for a holiday to Varadero, and if you're quick you can get a great deal for next summer whilst you're in your wooly jumpers sipping your mulled wine. I find a sun holiday to look forward to makes winter go quicker.
We have fallen in love with this couples holiday destination a little and so I have decided that it needs to be our December get away for 2016... OK 2017 at the latest.
Cuba, get ready for us because we're coming for you!
