Some things to note

Some things to note icon
  • Cuban Charm: A trip to Cuba is a unique and rewarding experience, a country largely untouched until now. This means that hotels, transport and facilities sometimes lack creature comforts. Accommodation may be of varying standards as tourism demands are surpassing current infrastructure and it is possible there can be unexpected changes. As such, travel in Cuba requires an adventurous spirit, flexibility and an open mind.
  • Please note: Depending on flight availability and schedule it may be possible for a direct flight to Santiago de Cuba.
  • The Mausoleum of Che Guevara is closed on Mondays. If this extension is started on a Sunday you will be unable to visit the Mausoleum.
