Caribbean Cuba CRUISES
In Partnership With
While Cuba has been off-limits to most American travelers since 1963, in recent years cruise ships have started calling again and flights from the United States have resumed. Most visitors today are drawn not only by the island’s mild climate and beautiful beaches but also its cultural riches. Havana has a wealth of colonial buildings and vintage automobiles, as well as intimate paladares that serve local dishes and street parties that move to the rhythms of mambo and salsa. On the country's southern coast, Cienfuegos has elegant mansions and a 19th-century street plan that earned it a place on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites.
Havana (La Habana), Cuba
While most Americans have never been there, the word Havana still evokes images of candy-colored vintage cars; smiling musicians; and cigar-smoking and rum-sipping locals. Dive beneath the surface and you’ll find much more: world-class sports matches, historic sites and even a Chinatown. And while Havana may not be a global culinary capital, you can find delicious dishes in casual restaurants run out of private homes or in upscale spots with city and water views. As for shopping, you’ll be able to purchase souvenirs from photo books about Cuba to a hand-blended perfume in a bottle that is a throwback to another era.
