Like nowhere else you have ever visited, Cuba is famous for its salsa dancing, mojitos and cigars but it's so much more than a friendly tropical island. Cubans have a strong love for life, a passion for music and socialising that is contagious. If you don't know how to dance when you arrive, you certainly will by the time you leave. Adapting to the Cuban way of life is one of the pleasures of visiting the country and continues to enthral travellers.
• Cubans enjoy their nightlife, from local salsa to simply catching up
• Bars in Havana are well known for their thriving music scene
• Varadero has plenty of bars and restaurants offering local cuisine
• Guardalavaca has a much slower more relaxed pace, so eating out and nightlife is limited and based around the hotels.
