There is nowhere quite like Cuba. Some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, the infectious pulse of salsa and a unique history of Spanish colonialism all combine to mould the very special magic of this island. Enduringly symbolised by the fabulous selection of old American classic cars, Old Havana is a World Heritage Site where many of the centuries-old buildings aren ow being meticulously resorted in their original style. Fringing the cayos of the north coast archipelago, vast stretches of unspoilt white sands fall away to the world’s second largest coral reef , while in the eastern province of Holguin, the quiet area of Guardalavaca enjoys a number of idyllic beaches and a coastline that rewards divers with a spectacular thriving marine life.
Cuba has a hot and sunny tropical climate with an average temperature of 24°C, but in the winter months of January and February the mercury can drop as low as 15°C, and even lower at night, worth considering when thinking about the best time to visit. This is during the dry season, which runs roughly from November to April.
If you visit in the summer, and more broadly between May and October, considered the wet season, expect it to rain on at least a couple of days over a fortnight. Eastern Cuba tends to be hotter and more humid during this part of the year, while the temperature in the area around Trinidad and Sancti Spíritus also creeps above the national average. September and October are the most threatening months of the annual hurricane season that runs from June to November.
We did not think you could match it but you did it again and more! 25th wedding anniversary this time and it was an amazing experience in the Golden Triangle. From the Taj Mahal to whitewater rafting in Sri Lanka, the organisation was incredible, hotels were great and staff fantastic which made our trip one we will never forget. Thank you
