Cuba

How you spend your time around your wedding in Cuba is up to you.  Sun-bathing on picturesque beaches, cooling off in crystal clear waters, enjoying a sweet and tangy mojito by the pool, or dancing the night away to sizzling salsa rhythms, Cuba offers relaxation, fun, adventure, and amazement.

While planning your wedding, chose from venues, like beach, garden, church or chapel and add as much tropical island feel, or as little as you like.  Chose also from historical buildings, resorts and so many options to truly make your wedding day special and unique.

Old Havana

A UNESCO World Heritage site, Habana Vieja or Old Havana is a well-preserved slice of Cuban history. Strolling around the cobbled streets and gazing up at the grand Baroque and neoclassical buildings, it’s easy to imagine what life in Cuba was like 200 years ago.

 Varadero

Varadero is one of Cuba’s most famous beach destinations, and home to one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. It stretches along the Peninsula de Hicacos, which juts into the sea off the north coast.  Offering so many fun and interesting things to do, like diving and snorkeling, are deep-sea fishing, golf, skydiving, and day trips to cultural attractions.

Parque Nacional Vinales

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Parque Nacional Vinales is a beautiful, valley in the Sierra de los Organos. Steep limestone hills, called mogotes, slice through the valleys, creating a dramatic landscape.

The valley floors in the Parque Nacional Vinales are agricultural areas where tobacco, fruit, and vegetables are grown. For outdoor enthusiasts, the park offers fantastic hiking and horseback riding in the hills.
