Serving as the single largest island in all of the Caribbean, Cuba proves to be a popular mainstay with adventurers the world over. Boasting an array of stunning beachfronts, a distinct sense of architecture, a deep and enriched history and of course a warm and welcoming climate, Cuba sets a particularly high standard for those seeking a memorable experience in a long haul destination.
Find out why Cuba is considered the “Pearl of the Antilles” on an amazing holiday that brings the sights and sounds of this spectacular isle closer than ever before.
Situated between North, South and Central America, Cuba may seem dwarfed by its mainland neighbours; however looks can be deceiving as the island holds a treasure trove of touristic hotspots and highlights peppered across the scenic landscape.
First port of call should be Havana, Cuba’s enigmatic capital city where visitors can really get to grips with some of the most significant landmarks the country has to offer. Those looking to delve deep into the history of the country should be sure to explore Old Havana and the Museum of the Revolution while the Malecón esplanade is a visual delight well worth visiting.
From the hustle and bustle of city living to the peace and serenity of resort life, Varadero offers a stark contrast from the capital, replacing looming architecture and a dense population with natural hues and stunning vistas. The white sands of Varadero Beach attract millions of visitors a year while Josone Park’s scenic setting is perfect for an intimate getaway.
Other areas worth noting are Cayo Coco whose stretches of beach are some of the most pristine around and the city of Holguin where urban living combines with beach resort elements to grant the best of both worlds.

With so much variety when it comes to sightseeing around Cuba it can be difficult to decide what to pack, but thankfully due to the somewhat predictable nature of the weather that task can be made much easier.
Cuba features a tropical climate which means heat, humidity and rainfall, so while it may be a good idea to pack light, be sure to bring a mixture of beach wear or light clothing such as shorts and t-shirts for the hotter days, dress options for the mild evenings and one or two items of rain gear just in case a downpour heads your way.
It is recommended that any medicines you may require be purchased prior to travel as Cuba is not known for its wealth of pharmacies, so mosquito repellent and sunscreen should be brought with you.
Being located in the Caribbean Sea, Cuba is treated to a particularly tropical climate which generally consists of a hot temperature combined with regular bouts of rainfall and high levels of humidity.
Cuba’s weather tends to be split into two seasons; a dry season which stretches from November to April and a wet season that begins in May and ends in October.
The most popular time to visit Cuba would be any time during the dry season when the temperature and humidity are lower making the weather much more comfortable. Though the occasional downpour is inevitable, it’s less likely during the dry season as opposed to the wet season which potentially suffers bouts of storms.
