Cuba hasn’t always been a holiday hotspot. In fact, for years, Cuba was restricted by the Communist regime and the US trade ban, which prevented Cuba developing as a tourist destination. But that may well have worked in Cuba’s favour, as it remains largely unspoilt despite the recent boom in its tourist trade. Its abundance of powdery beaches and glorious weather complements make it a perfect long haul holiday destination. It’s absolutely perfect for romantic breaks.


Cuba’s wet season runs from July to September, and the dry season runs from December to April or May. The weather is warm for the whole year, so if constant sunshine isn’t an absolute must for you, for the cheapest flights to Cuba, think about taking your Cuba holidays between October and November. Hurricanes are likely, but the temperatures are still warm and flights and Cuba accommodation are much cheaper.
