Luxury holidays in Havana

When to go

With balmy temperatures all year round, there’s really no bad time to get down in old Havana. High season typically falls between November and April, though the essence of the city comes alive in the summer, when the triumphant spirit of Cuba’s Dia de la Revolución gives way to the feather-clad dancers, fire-breathers and fantastical floats of Havana Carnival each August.

Getting there

  • Planes

    The closest International hub is Havana Jose Marti International Airport, located 20km south of the city center. Flights arrive here from the UK and Europe, the Americas and Asia. From here, the journey to central Havana takes between 20 and 30 minutes.
  • Automobiles

    Unlike other capital cities, the streets of Havana are not typically crowded with motorists. The bad news? Potholes are commonplace, so buckle up. Like any historic city, streets can be narrow in the old town, so it’s best to park up just outside, and keep an eye out for roads with double names when using GPS.
