When is the best time to visit?
From December to May, travelers can expect sunny skies and moderate temperatures at this island nation. Beware of hurricanes in August, September, and October.
Where to go in Cuba?
The most popular destination is Havana and the surrounding beaches, and while this is certainly a must see, travelers should do themselves a favor and also explore the rural region of Viñales. It’s a traditional yet welcoming region with plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation.
How many days do I need?
Visitors breeze through Havana in as little as 3 days, but cruising the whole country for as long as 3 weeks is definitely preferable.
Experience Cuba from a uniquely Cuban perspective. Visit the studio of a rising reggaeton star, learn how to dance the Mambo, and paddleboard the Zapata Peninsula. Meet artists and photographers and soak up the music scene. The perfect combination of nature and culture, this trip will take you to Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad.
Even with just a few days to spare, you can still take in all that Havana has to offer. Discover Cuba’s creative culture with entrepreneurs, artists, intellectuals, and chefs – the people who are creating Cuba’s future. You'll see the art , taste the flavors, hear the rhythm, and feel the soul of the thriving Cuban lifestyle.
