A perplexing yet utterly captivating country of colourful contradictions, Cuba is a kaleidoscope of charming colonial towns, breathtaking beaches, art-deco architecture and rich historical heritage, all wrapped up in irresistible salsa rhythms and stirred with a dash of the country’s famous rum. From the exuberant musicality of the capital of Havana to the rugged majesty of its soaring mountain peaks and the breathtaking beauty of its beaches, exploring Cuba is guaranteed to provide unique experiences and endless surprises at every turn.
Our dedicated team of Caribbean experts have made frequent visits to Cuba over the years, including regular stays at the resorts that we sell, which enable them to stay completely up to date with any new developments. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable about the country, they are keenly passionate about it too, and their key priority is ensuring that you come to the end of a holiday in Cuba feeling the same way!
Cuba has a warm tropical climate and two distinct seasons; the best time of year to visit tends to be the period between December and May, when the days are dry and sunny. Temperatures soar during the summer months of July and August, although from June to November the conditions can also be humid and wet.
You can fly directly to Cuba with Virgin Atlantic from London Gatwick into Havana airport. From regional UK airports, you can also choose to fly with Air Europa via Madrid and Air France via Paris.
