Now, that you can travel to Cuba from Curaçao, the only question remains, why are you waiting?

Or take the 3-hour bus trip to Viñales. Amazing place with its untouched natural parks.

If you decide to go by yourself it will take some work in the beginning. The first two days will be spent exploring the city on foot or with a driver so you learn the layout of the city. Havana is large, but the locations of interest for visitors are mostly concentrated in a few areas. During your stay you will want to visit museums, art galleries, churches, historical sites and relax at the outdoor cafes to enjoy a pleasant meal.

And, of course, you will enjoy music while you are in Havana. As you walk in the street, music will pour out of radios in people’s homes. There are nightclubs, jazz clubs and nostalgic musical reviews like Cabaret Parisien at the Hotel Nacional. Small bands play in cafés and bars where you can enjoy the music called “son” that was popularized by the movie, the Buena Vista Social Club. There are also groups playing in the streets. Make sure you have a few CUC’s (Cuban money) to help these musicians.

You can’t go to Havana without encountering vintage 1950s and 1960s American cars. When you are riding in the back seat of a beautifullyP1090540 restored convertible 1958 Ford Fairlane, you will look up at the passing palm trees and enjoy the warm breeze on your face, imagining that you have slipped back in time.

Cuba is different. It’s not a place where you go and criticize their way of life. Just pull your handbrake, slow down and let it all sink in. Trust me you will enjoy it.

Book your flight now with Sunrise Airways and enjoy Cuba. Viva Cuba!
