Delve below Cuba’s tourist-friendly surface and Cuba has many secluded spots which offer the perfect private retreat from everyday life. None can compete with Baracoa, found at the far eastern end of the island, and the island’s oldest settlement.  Discover quiet golden beaches and streets lined with brightly-coloured clapboard homes and quaint cafés serving up irresistible mugs of drinking chocolate, made from locally-sourced cocoa. Mount El Yunque and the surrounding emerald-green hillsides paint a picture-perfect background to your visit, covered with lush banana, coconut and cocoa groves.

4. Montserrat

Life in Montserrat is focused in the north of the country, due to the past activity of Soufrière Hills Volcano – but travellers should not be deterred, a Monserrat yacht charter offers a unrivalled blend of striking viewpoints, exotic wildlife and diving opportunities. With a superyacht equipped with all the state-of-the-art diving and snorkelling gear you could wish for, all those on a charter vacation have to worry about is spotting the country’s rare national bird, the yellow-chested Montserrat oriole as you enjoy the island’s relaxed pace of life.
