Best travel period

Cuba has a subtropical climate and can be visited all year round. The best time to visit the country is between November and April, when the weather is mostly dry and the risk of hurricanes is minimal. Between April and November, the rainy season occurs when temperature and humidity rise, but this should not deter anyone from visiting the country as Cuba, regardless of climate, is fantastic.

Day 1: Departure Sweden – arrival in Havana

Departure from Sweden to Cuba, where you will arrive in the afternoon. One or two stopovers will be added depending on which airline you travel with. Havana is a big city with 2.2 million inhabitants which, however, feels smaller and is a nice gateway to the country. The central part of Havana is divided into three smaller districts: Havana Vieja, Centro Havana and Vedado. Vedado is the newest, most expensive and most modern part of Havana. Havana Vieja and Centro Havana date back to Spanish colonial times. The whole city is teeming with life. Take a walk along the beautiful streets of Havana dating back to the Spanish colonial era. The music makes its mark on everyday life. The bars, restaurants and cafes are buzzing with life and Cuban rum, music groups fill the premises with dancing music, why even the most tone-deaf guest can not resist drumming to the beat. A Chevrolet from the 50’s or a horse-drawn carriage in the middle of the street crowd moves you to a time when you could expect a meeting with Ernest Hemingway on the next street corner.

Day 2: Havana

The day is freely available, and Havana offers countless attractions such as: San Christobal Cathedral – the location as well as the cathedral is incredibly beautiful, and there are rich opportunities to enjoy a cup of coffee at the sun-drenched place .. Capitolio – a sand copy of US Capitol Hill, though if possible even more impressive. Hotel Ambos Mundos – The famous author Hemingway lived here, and his typewriter still stands in the room he lived in.
