Of course the best part about Cuba is the sightseeing and history. In order to see it all we recommend taking a sightseeing tour. This will run you about 150 CUC for 3 hours of touring. Havana has several nightlife options that we really enjoyed. Of course the infamous Malecon is a great spot for our laid back chill travellers and Fantasy Nightclub for our more upscale partiers. Dress to impress! Fantasy is an underground nightclub, free cover, and diverse club music. Tables are $150 and have to be reserved ahead of time. No pictures or videos are allowed inside. Check out Calle Obispo it’s a street full of bars, restaurants, and music.
Varadero, Cuba has a great nightclub called Casa de la Musica. If you want a table, be sure to get there early, they let the locals into the club first and the tables are first come first serve. BOTTLES WERE ONLY 25 CUC!!!! They offer live salsa music followed by club music with a DJ. But nothing compares to the beach in Varadero. The water… The sand…. OMG!!!! Absolutely breathtaking! We spent most of our time on 15th street. That area of the beach offers different water activities such as parasailing, kayaks, catamarans, and other water sports as available. There is also a restaurant near the beach to buy $2 El President beers and if you smile nice and pretty you may be able to borrow a chair and umbrella from the hotel. Worst case scenario give them $2 and they will let you stay LOL.
If you have enough time left, take a day trip down to Vinales for a horseback riding tour of their snuff fields, see how the coffee and Cuban cigars are made. From Havana the trip will cost you $150 to and from Vinales and it is about a 2 ½ hour drive there. Ask your driver to take you to Cueva del Indio in Vinales before the tour. It’s a cool cave, costs only $5 and the exertion will take you 20 min to walk through the cave and a small boat ride to the other side of the cave. You might even run into some of the Indians that live on the land!!
