Thomson relaunch Cuba holiday programme

Thomson has re-introduced holidays in Cuba from Summer 2009, and its new year round programme offers a range of exceptional holiday experiences, from all inclusive hotels to twin centre holidays, as well as some unforgettable tours. However, rumour has it that President Obama plans to ease the longstanding U.S. restrictions on travel, so Cuba could change in the years to come to cater for the mass American tourist market right next door… So, have a cigar, and enjoy an authentic Cuba holiday experience with Thomson - while you still can!Cuba is famed for its exciting history and extraordinary music and dance traditions, as well as its vibrant capital city, Havana. Expect rumba beats, daiquiri cocktails and an endless choice of great venues in a city that loves to party where, with no official licensing hours, clubs and bars tend to stay open until the last customer leaves!

However, holidays in Cuba offer all of this and so much more, as it is also home to unspoiled palm-fringed, white sandy beaches that characterise the Caribbean. Thomson’s ‘Twin Centre’ holidays allow you to combine the best of both world’s in an unforgettable holiday experience. Passengers can book either a traditional package break or twin centre holiday, combining the sights and sounds of holidays in Havana with a beach holiday in Varadero or Guardalavaca.

“We’re thrilled to have re-introduced the destination of Cuba to the Thomson brand”, says Shona Swain, Acting General Manager, Longhaul Product, TUI UK, “it is a magical Caribbean experience offering so much more than just a beach holiday. The city of Havana is an absolute must and in my opinion is one of the most exciting cities in the world. There has never been a better time to visit.”
