A lot of parents tend to disregard Cuba as a holiday destination for taking the kids. The economic challenges and somewhat hedonistic Latin culture make it seem quite a daunting location for booking a family holiday. Despite these common misinterpretations of Cuba, it can make the perfect place for that amazing family holiday:
Things to do
It might not be Disney world, but Cuba has plenty of more authentic fun activities for children to do. Although it’s not packed with all singing and dancing shows and sounds, the traditional culture is something real that children will be able to learn from and experience that might not be around forever. From the cobbled colourful streets of Havana where Cuban children play football in the road thanks to the lack of traffic, to the sandy beaches on the coast where you can drink from a coconut and frolic in the sea.
Cuba has some amazing all-inclusive hotels to visit which means that if you’re unsure how well your children will adapt to the traditional Cuban cuisine and lack of home comforts in the cities, you can split your time between the two. Check out some of the amazing deals at Cuba Holidays to find the perfect hotel for you. There are many different types of hotels including huge complexes so you never need to venture outside, but if you don’t you’ll be missing out on some amazing sites.
If you do want to get about and experience Cuban culture it is one of the safest places to visit with extremely friendly locals. Havana has lots of amazing small museums to visit from the old cars to playing cards and chocolate plus the exciting streets are lined with street performers. Getting around is super easy too with taxis and buses both being very cheap and quite safe. The beaches have loads of amazing activities to do so you can go snorkelling and see some amazing sea life or just chill out and spend a day sunbathing by the sea.
Children will love Cuba, although it’s quite a long flight and not the most obvious child friendly destination initially it is one of the best holiday destinations in the world. From the gorgeous beaches to the bright rights and sounds of Havana, a family holiday to Cuba with Cuba Holidays will definitely be a holiday you won’t forget.
