Cuba: When is the best time to visit?
Honeymoons. Honeymooning. Honeymooners.
Let’s talk about some of the most popular honeymoon spots and when is the best time to visit.
A colourful kaleidoscope of historical architecture, vintage cars and pristine beaches, Cuba is a unique and worthy choice for a honeymoon destination. The birth-place of the oh-so-delicious mojito, and with endless sunshine, rich cultural heritage, salsa and cigars – there is more than one reason to put Cuba on the list.
Why do couples choose Cuba?
Cuba is the perfect honeymoon destination for those seeking a unique getaway, that leaves room for both interesting cultural activities and relaxed beachside beverages. From its stunning beaches to its charming and colourful cities, there’s something for every couple to enjoy.
There are lots of interesting museums and art galleries, as well as impressive buildings and of course, the classic cars that Cuba is known for. Get involved in the local scene and dance the salsa with locals at the numerous salsa clubs throughout the country, and experience the Cuban culture throughout the year with the multiple street festivals.
With influences from Spain, Africa and the surrounding Caribbean islands, it’s safe to say that Cuban cuisine is rooted in flavour. Although not an exhaustive list, the island is also famous for serving refreshing mojito cocktails made using rum from sugar cane, the ever-popular strong and sweet Cuban coffee, and of course hand rolled cigars.
If you’re after adventure, visitors to Cuba can hike through the jungle, visit waterfalls and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Release turtles into the ocean at Cayo Largo, dive the colourful coral reefs of Cayo Coco or relax on the island’s famous Varadero Beach.
When is the best time to visit?
December to May
The ‘best’ time to visit Cuba really depends on your personal preferences and budget. December to May sees warm weather and clear blue skies, but this time period, in particular December to March, is also considered to be high season which results in more tourists and higher prices.
As Cuba is located in the Caribbean Sea, it’s important to note that June through to November is considered to be tropical storm and rainy season and does come with a risk of hurricanes. Daily rainfall and high humidity levels are to be expected during this time frame.
Regardless of when you visit, Cuba’s vibrant culture, rich history, and stunning natural beauty will make for an unforgettable trip.
