Cuba Tour

The door to Cuba’s soul, Havana captivates with its larger-than-life culture, sultry rhythms and weathered beauty. Take a relaxing stroll along the evocative Malecón, the quintessentially Cuban thoroughfare and get lost among the Baroque facades and colonial cobblestone streets of Old Havana. Enjoy traditional Cuban fare such as moros y cristianos (black beans and rice) and ropa vieja (shredded beef).Visit the grandiose Capitolio Nacional and explore the world-class art collection at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, which showcases everything from colonial-era paintings to countless masterpieces from Cuba’s famed Vanguard period. Enjoy a friendly game of dominoes with the locals. Sip a daiquiri at Hemingway’s favorite haunt, El Floridita, happen upon a live jazz group and simply savor the eclectic moment in this unique corner of the Americas.

Climate:

Cuba has a tropical climate, with warm, humid weather all year long, though cold temperatures have occurred in the mountains before. Being surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba has warm water year round, with winter water temperatures at 24C, spring and fall temperatures at 26C and summer temperatures at 28C.

Currency:

Cuba has two currencies, the Cuban Peso (CUP) and the Cuban Convertible Peso (CUC). Most tourists will be using the CUC for all purchases, hotels, taxis and activities, but there is possibility to pay in equivalent in CUP (or CUC, when there is a CUP price), the rate is mostly 1 CUC = 25 CUP. The CUC was created to replace all the US$ that were used in the tourist industry until the late 1990s.

See:

  • Havana Club Rum Factory. Go on a guided tour of Havana Club, one of Cuba’s most famous rums. Most of the exhibits are subtitled in English and are fairly self-explanatory.
  • Visit a live cigar factory. One offering tours is at the intersection of Peñalver and San Carlos (just 1 mile southwest of Old Havana La Habana Vieja), tickets can/should be bought in advance (10 CUC per person as of July 2014). English tours are available. Please note that there is no photography allowed. It is the place where you can also be sure to get the correct cigars in the shop – more expensive than ‘street offers’ – but the quality of these “street offers” is definitely questionable, . Note that the Partagas cigar factory just behind the Capitol Building has closed permanently since late 2011 and moved; the original factory is now a shop only.
  • Museum of the Revolution and the Capitol Building.
  • Walk along El Malecón. A favorite stroll for tourists and locals, a walk along the Malecón runs along the main streets of Havana and provides stunning views of the Bay.
  • Enjoy the glory of La Habana Vieja (The Old Town), some of it faded and crumbling – but there are many beautifully restored buildings as a result of the UNESCO World Heritage Site designation.
