Because of its year round popularity, there really isn’t a bad time to visit Havana. The busiest months with the most activity and tourist facilities are probably the winter months, with temperatures reaching the high 20s and people looking to escape the cold winters of the UK and parts of the USA. May to June is a better time to go if you want to visit when the crowds have died down a little, with temperatures still remaining high. Although Havana tends to be both warm and busy for most of the year, so just keep your eyes peeled for the best deal!
One of the best things to do in Havana is to take a leisurely stroll through its famous Old Town area. La Habana Vieja is a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site. A walk along the Prado is highly recommended to enjoy the buzz of the numerous cafes and restaurants that line the streets. Another great place to visit in the city is along El Malecón, Havana’s waterfront which provides stunning views of the rest of the city. Other honourable mentions include a trip to Havana Rum Club Museum and the National Capitol Building.
The accommodation in Havana is varied and the city is home to a unique style of accommodation that we definitely think that you should check out. Casas Particulares are private houses licensed to offer lodging services to foreigners. It is essentially a fancy bed & breakfast and is one of the trendiest and most reliable ways to stay in Havana as the hotels here can be a bit hit and miss. Dining out in Havana is just as diverse.
