Lovely Caribbean sunshine, beautiful beaches, and a unique culture are just a few of the things that await you in Cuba. Since the embargo with the United States, only a few brave souls ever make it to the island, but those who do are rewarded with a cool, fun holiday in the Caribbean, as well as plenty of delicious rum and cigars. Read on to learn more about all of the fun things to do in Cuba.
Havana has some beautiful colonial architecture, particularly in the old city. You can also see plenty of landmarks paying homage to the Revolution, such as the Plaza de la Revolucion and the Revolution Museum. You can also indulge in a fine glass of rum at the Havana Club Rum Factory, which is open for tours. Nearby, you will also find the Partagas cigar factory, where you can find authentic Cuban cigars of the highest quality. Or, if you have a full day, you can take a tour of the city in one of the trademark classic cars.
However, Havana really comes to life after dark. There are plenty of venues hosting concerts and live music. We recommend Hotel Nacional, La Casa de la Musica de Centro Habana, and Museo del Ron. If you’re in the mood for something a bit racier, then you can catch a cabaret show at Tropicana.
Exploring Trinidad de Cuba
This gorgeous city in central Cuba is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its well-preserved colonial architecture. Just taking a walk through the center of town is fun, but if you go at night you can see the people salsa-dancing in the Plaza de Armas.
The landscape outside of the city is beautiful as well. For example, you can take a tour on horseback or hike to the waterfall, about an hour and a half outside of Trinidad proper. At the waterfall there is also a cave and a pool of water where you can swim. Just don’t forget bug spray, as the area is tropical and the mosquitos can be a bit aggressive!
Relax on the Beaches at Varadero
This stunning strip of white-sand beach to the east of Havana is where most of Cuba holidays focus. Here you will find a wide selection of amenities and even a few posh resorts. Aside from enjoying the sunshine, you can also go snorkeling and even swim with dolphins.
If you’re up for a bit of a thrill, then you can also check out the Bellamar Caves, one of Cuba’s oldest tourist attractions. You can take a guided tour through an extensive network of caves that you can explore with only a flashlight to show you the way. Definitely an adventure!
These are just a few of the sites and attractions that await you in Cuba. Get ready to explore this wonderful country!
