Cuba All Inclusive Resorts
Why visit one of our Cuba All Inclusive
Why visit on of our Cuba All Inclusive Resorts? The Republic of
Cuba is one of the most serenely beautiful and fascinating islands
on Earth. Hundreds of white sandy beaches, fields of sugar cane
and historic political murals – one trip to Cuba will
create mental images that last a lifetime.
Traveling through any town in Cuba invokes amazement at colonial
architecture and historic buildings. You can almost feel
the way Old Havana’s streets used to bustle before the Revolution
that brought on US travel restrictions. The people of Cuba are warm
and inviting and while Spanish is the First language, much
of the population speaks English and French.
Cuban cars make visitors feel like they’re time traveling
as they are still mainly vintage 1950s American models (in perfect
shape mind you). This majestic island is a mix of tropical mountains,
valleys and some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Cuba
is the most unique of travel paradises, there is nowhere else like
it and one taste will have you planning your next visit.
Flying to your Cuba All Inclusive Resorts
The main gateway into Cuba is Jose Marti International Airport
which has regularly scheduled flights from Canada, Mexico and Europe.
Other destinations, such as Varadero have their own airports that
receive charter flights from international tour operators. Access
to Cuba is easy and getting easier every day.
Havana is only an hour and a half from Varadero and follows one
of the most beautiful highways imaginable along the coast, passing
through seaside villages like Matanzas. If you find a flight to
Havana cheaper than one to your Cuba All Inclusive Resort destination,
fly into Havana. The drive is beautiful, most taxi drivers in Cuba
are excellent tour guides and All Inclusive Resorts Inc will arrange
a transfer for you for a fraction of what you’d pay normally.
Travel to Cuba
Cuba is one of the most popular holiday destinations for Canadian
and European tourists. They come in droves every year for the beautiful
beaches, Cuba’s personality and the low price of Cuba
All Inclusive Resorts.
Before the 1959 Revolution, US tourists traveled to Cuba regularly.
Since the Revolution, there have been US travel restrictions to
Cuba in place. Travel to Cuba by US citizens is still possible,
albeit there seems to be a grey area in terms of legality. Several
US travelers fly from Canadian departure points to Cuba every year
and Cuban Immigration officials oblige them by stamping an inserted
page in their passports instead of stamping the passport itself.
Economy Focusing on Tourism
Cuba All Inclusive Resorts have become the
primary focus of their Minister of Tourism.
Economy is a mix of Socialism, Communism and Capitalism at the
moment with new changes coming in to play every year. Most things
are state owned with some small private enterprises in operation.
Cuba’s economy collapsed in the 1990s with the fall of the
Soviet Union. While their economy is definitely struggling they
are placing an ever increasing focus on Tourism and creating the
perfect environment for visitors to Cuba All Inclusive Resorts.
Cuba currently trades with most countries in the world (including
the US) although several US embargos to Cuba are still in place.
There are several reasons to reinstitute trade with Cuba and open
Cuba to US travel. The Cuban government seems to be preparing for
this scenario and is building Cuba All Inclusive Resorts faster
than they can fill them – they definitely seem to be anticipating
Cuba opening up to the US.
Visas and Passports
A tourist visa is necessary for tourists from most countries which
allows tourists to stay for 30 days and can be extended for an additional
30 days at any Immigration office in Cuba. Canadians are granted
an initial 90 day visa that can be extended during their trip. Note
that your visa must have at least 6 months remaining before the
expiry date when you travel.
Money in Cuba
Money that will be used at your Cuba All
Tipping can definitely be done with US dollars. Most transactions
take place with CUC (Convertible Cuban Pesos) that are worth 24
times CUP (local Pesos). Only limited products can be purchased
with CUP so don’t convert many of those.
You can convert US dollars at any bank or hotel, be sure
not to convert more than you’re going to spend as
you won’t be able to convert back to US dollars before you
While Cuba is one of the safest countries you can travel to, shortchanging
tourists does happen. Beware that you are not being given change
in local Pesos for your Convertible Pesos.
Keep in mind that there is a 25 CUC departure tax to be paid at
the airport (in cash) when leaving the Republic of Cuba. It’s
a great idea to have this amount of cash with you in exact change
as it can really slow down your passage through the airport for
your departing flight.
Cuisine on the Rise
The food at Cuba All Inclusive Resorts has improved in recent years.
While maybe not yet on par with the cuisine at Punta Cana resorts,
it’s definitely on its way. Cuban tourist destinations have
realized that the way to a traveler’s heart is through their
stomach and international flavors and menus can be found at almost
all Cuba all inclusive resorts these days.
While the food is now very good at Cuban resorts, an interesting
fact about Cuba is that restaurant food is notoriously flavorless
because restaurants have been state owned for so long. Traditionally,
the best food could be found in Privately owned restaurants in people’s
homes called Casa Particulares. If you’re intending to go
to one, make sure to only eat in ones that have printed menus with
prices or you might end up paying several times what your meal is
Drinking Water in Cuba
Health risks are minimal in Cuba except for the water. Even many
Cubans boil their water before drinking. Tourists should
stalk up on bottled water which is delivered for free at
most Cuba All Inclusive Resorts and is definitely available cheap
in every shop in Cuba. The health care system is great in Cuba,
the one thing to take note of is that pharmacies will definitely
lack products that Westerners take for granted. Any off the shelf
medication that you take at home should come with you on your trip.
One visit to this historic and picturesque island will have you
feeling like a Cuban at heart. We promise that your first
visit won’t be your last, visit one of our Cuba All
Inclusive Resorts and step into paradise!
