TAILOR MADE TOURS CUBA

The Most Exciting Island in the Caribbean

CUBA - THE DESTINATION

Cuba is among the most exciting islands in the Caribbean. Whereas other islands have one or two major attractions: the beach, say, and perhaps one or two historic monuments, Cuba has just about everything you could imagine. There are dramatic mountainous landscapes, wild and unspoilt valleys, sweeping vistas of sugar cane, tobacco plantations glowing emerald green against the vermilion earth of the fields, seven exquisite cities dating from the mid-fifteenth century, an amazing variety of flora and fauna, some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and above all, Cuba’s greatest asset: her people. We are (though we say it ourselves) welcoming, enthusiastic, polite and a lot of fun - and that’s putting it mildly. Come and see for yourselves...

CUBA - THE DESTINATION

Cuba is among the most exciting islands in the Caribbean. Whereas other islands have one or two major attractions: the beach, say, and perhaps one or two historic monuments, Cuba has just about everything you could imagine. There are dramatic mountainous landscapes, wild and unspoilt valleys, sweeping vistas of sugar cane, tobacco plantations glowing emerald green against the vermilion earth of the fields, seven exquisite cities dating from the mid-fifteenth century, an amazing variety of flora and fauna, some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and above all, Cuba’s greatest asset: her people. We are (though we say it ourselves) welcoming, enthusiastic, polite and a lot of fun - and that’s putting it mildly. Come and see for yourselves... 

CLIMATE AND WHEN TO GO

Cuba’s weather is pleasant and subtropical. The island lies in a tropical zone, but trade winds of the ocean and warm currents from the gulf stream keep the climate moderate, and less extreme than as in other tropical areas. There are only two seasons, the dry season from November to early May, and the rainy season from May to October. It rains almost every day in the summer. Showers can last up to an hour and are usually followed by sunshine and blue skies. Speaking of sun —there is an average eight hours of sunlight daily and 300 sunny days throughout the year. There are no pronounced seasonal variations in temperature. The average temperature is around 25˚C. Humidity and rainfall are the highest in September or October. July and and August are the hottest months with temperatures averaging 32˚C. The coldest months tend to be January and February. September is the wettest month and February and March tend to be the driest. There is no danger of frost in Cuba since the lowest temperature is around 15˚C. The average annual temperature of Havana is approximately 25.2˚C with summer highs of 32.8˚C. 

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Cubans are generally friendly and helpful people. Keep in mind that they make about US$15 a month; if they can help you, they probably will, but they may expect you to return the favor. If you are invited into a Cuban's home for supper, take the invitation. You will really be treated like a guest of honor. It is a great way to get a feel for the culture. Of course, ordinary Cubans are not permitted to host this type of event, but it goes on as a matter of course. One way to help local Cubans is by staying in casas particulares and eating in paladares. While free enterprise is usually banned, several years ago the government began selling expensive licenses to individuals wishing to open up rooms for rent in their houses, or set up a few tables on their porch and cook out of their kitchens. Not only are the licenses very expensive but the fees must be paid monthly regardless of income, leaving those less fortunate the possibility of actually losing money. Not only is it more interesting to stay with locals and eat in their homes, you're actually directly benefiting them in one of the few ways possible.

Do not push Cubans into a discussion of political issues, as this could have serious repercussions on you and the person to whom you are talking.

In many cities the only way for tourists to access the internet is through the government's communications centres and Wi-Fi hot spots in parks. Look for buildings bearing the name "ETECSA", which stands for Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba S.A. ETECSA also has internet stations in some of the larger government hotels and resorts. The connection speed is 1-2 MBps near the ETECSA office. This is payable by purchasing a prepaid scratch card called NAUTA with a PIN code granting you access for one hour. The same card can be used throughout the country at any ETECSA terminal, allowing you to disconnect after your session and use the remaining time on the card further at the next hotel/city you go to.
