Havana Cuba

Havana Cuba Tourist Information and Travel Guide


Havana Cuba is a city frozen in time. Isolated by the US trade embargo and no longer receiving foreign aid from Russia, Cuba has been forced to survive with its limited resources, human ingenuity and determination.  You won't find the golden arches in Havana.  Old world Spanish buildings and antique cars, however, will make you feel as if you were back in the 1950s.

The Cuban people are friendly with visitors to their country.  Citizens of the European Union, Canada and most other western countries are free to visit Cuba, although a Cuban visa is required.  The US government, however, does not permit American citizens to visit the island.

Most tourists to Cuba spend their vacations at the  inclusive beach resorts in Varadero. These international resorts are similar to those found in Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta and offer similar amenities.  To experience the "real" Cuba however, visitors should spend time in Havana.

Airline and hotel packages to Havana and Varadero are available from most Canadian and European cities and can be booked online.
