Cuba is undoubtedly a bucket list destination.
Cuba offers not only culture but also the vintage beauty of Havana, the spectacular beaches of Varadero and the amazing landscapes of Viñales.
While Cuba is rapidly changing, the largest island in the Caribbean has a fascinating history waiting for you to discover. Plus, it surely has some of the loveliest people you’ll ever meet in your lifetime.
From the clear waters of Holguin to the vibrant streets of Santiago de Cuba during the carnival season, there are plenty of things to do in this country. Regardless of your personality and lifestyle, there is a wide range of activities that you can engage in when you travel to Cuba —you can try some water sports and have some adventure or simply relax and enjoy a leisurely holiday.
One of the things that you shouldn’t miss when you go to Cuba is sunbathing at the world famous white sand beaches of Varadero. Also, your trip won’t be complete without having a look at the historic downtown of Havana.
If you are a fan of cocktails, you should visit Havana’s Floridita and sip on a daiquiri. This is the actual birthplace of this alcoholic drink. Also in Havana is Hotel Ambos Mundos where it is best to indulge in a refreshing mojito on the rooftop.
For those who are interested in architecture, don’t forget to include Cienfuegos where you will find French-influenced architecture. If there is another thing that Cuba is popular for, it is the cigar. So, it is highly recommended to take a guided tour to a cigar factory to get an inside look at how it is made.
Because Cuba has a tropical climate, people from cold locations usually travel to this country during the winter season. However, the summer season also remains a good time to visit. The Carnival in Santiago happens during July; yet, if you are planning to go to Cuba between the months of June to November, you should be aware that it is hurricane season during this time.
