Cuba Holiday Deals

A holiday to Cuba conjures images of exquisite Caribbean coastline, gregarious Havana and the island’s furrowed and interior full of stories of Hemmingway, Che and la revolución. It’s a place where time stood still for so long, that is now poised for change.

Essential Information

Right Here, Right Now

Now is the time to go. The embargo (enforced since 1958) is gradually peeling away and American goods and services will inevitably find their way across the Mexican Gulf. Paladars (family run restaurants) will soon have to compete with Starbucks, McDonalds and the cheap food stuffs of the US food industry. Abandoned but atmospheric tobacco farms will surely be resuscitated as cigar markets look to the skies and the concentration of vintage cars is already being diluted by brand new Chinese models. A holiday to Cuba in the next few years could be the last of this kind. As for the future - who knows what Cubans themselves will do as they awake to a world of opportunity. One thing is for sure: change is coming.

History

The rebel lookout Loma del Capiro in Santa Clara, Havana’s Revolution Square, and civil war heroes staring wistfully around courtyards (most notably Che). There’s revolution everywhere – it’s easy to forget there was a Cuba before. Use your holiday to explore Cuba’s hinterland where older generations swill rum and puff cigars after a day in the fields. Hike rugged mountain ranges like the Sierra Maestra to discover endemic species and stop to contemplate the struggle of guerillas that once hid here. Infrastructure is bad so getting out of the cities can be hard but the rewards are self explanatory – the rarely seen and little regarded old world of Cuba.

Música Sincrético

Calloused hands pick guitar melodies from balconies overhead, trumpets bellow over the clink-clinking of glass in corner bars and drums get beaten black and blue at impromptu street parties. You might not speak Spanish but music is a universal language. Take salsa classes and learn the basic steps or throw caution to the wind and dive right in after a mojito or two. Dancing here is fuelled by passion, unleashed by rum and doesn’t let up till the red morning light. 

Explore Cuba

Neither here nor there; Cuba is old school yet progressive, easy going but staunch. Estrangement from the United States and the grip of a one party state has pegged it back in the mid 1900’s, preserving its old school personality like an apple sealed in wax. For Americans, the fruit is no longer forbidden as the trade embargo is slowly deconstructed, Cuba is an increasingly popular American holiday destination. The lure of beachside mojitos, classic cars, and antiquated colonial architecture is more urgent than ever as change is set to come to the north Caribbean’s most alluring, criticised and controversial island, now opening its doors to new experiences.

Best Time to Travel

Cuba has a tropical climate which is moderated by the Caribbean current which delivers warm, equatorial waters. There are two seasons: the dry season (November – April) and a rainy season (May – October). January highs are 21 degrees Celsius and July average at 27 degrees Celsius. The influence of the Caribbean current is such that there are local variances to this general overview. The best time to go is either end of the December and January peak tourist season. Hurricane season is between September and October.
