    An action-packed private family journey to a small, breathtakingly beautiful country. It’s a treasure trove for the nature-lover and adventure-seeker with a multitude of well-organised national parks which you can explore on foot, by kayak or zip-line adventure, with a backdrop of hissing volcanoes, bird-filled mangroves or steaming jungle. On the Pacific coast the shoreline is enlivened by the chattering of monkeys and parrots.

    Cuba is a superb family destination: the distances are relatively short, roads outside the cities are traffic free, the people are friendly and communicative, and there are dozens of exciting outdoor and cultural activities. And the sun almost always shines. Before playing on sugar-white sands, your family will thrill to a drive in a vintage car, and to the birds and crocodiles on view in a wildlife wetland.

    We think you can't find better in the world than Brazil for an adventurous, fun and educational holiday for families. The attractions are huge - the views from the Corcovado mountain’s statue of Christ in Rio, the monumental Iguazú Falls, the wildlife riches of the vast Amazon basin. Thrills and spills on a daily basis - but we've built in some relaxing beach-time as well.

    If you are adventurous in spirit, the most rewarding way to travel around Cuba is by self-drive hire car. Relish the flexibility and decide how fast and how far you travel. Your hotels are all pre-booked for you. Walk round Havana’s historic centre; drive through limestone landscapes in the Viñales valley and forests around Las Terrazas. Move on to Cuba’s historic cities, Cienfuegos and colonial Trinidad.
