For Cancerians, being emotional and moody is a day’s work! That is why we think that New York in USA is the perfect holiday destination for you. New York is a lot of things: great, wonderful, crazy, sentimental and hard to let go of. The Statue of Liberty stands tall and it would be criminal not to have a look at her! Other places you cannot miss visiting while you are in New York are the Top of the Rock, Times Square and Central Park. We also recommend The Big Apple helicopter tour.

With Leo people, it’s all about being expansive and broad-minded. The beautiful museums and galleries in Havana, Cuba are wonderful for broadening your horizons. They are fun, quirky or historical: whatever you want them to be. If you love art, don’t forget to go to the headquarters of Bacardi Rum here in the city. The art deco it has is fantastic. Dine in style at the smart Miramar or the art-sy Vedado while here!
