Cuba Yacht Charter Guide
A uniquely dynamic fusion of cultural and natural beauty
Go beyond the bustling surface of Cuba and what lies beneath is a breathtaking fusion of vibrant Latin culture mixed with Caribbean vibes. Replete with secluded beaches, restaurants, and turquoise waters, the island nation comfortably meets all the needs of the modern charterer.
For those after a charter vacation full of unique experiences set to a stunning backdrop away from the world’s more populated cruising grounds, the Caribbean island nation of Cuba is just the place to go. Owing to its extraordinary history, the destination is just as much a meeting point of various influences as it is a place to unwind in comfort. Indeed, the streets are lined with everything from Spanish colonial mansions to architecture inspired by the Art deco movement of the early twentieth century. Passing in front of such unique streets is a constantly changing lineup of classic American cars originally imported during the 50s. At night, Cuba comes alive to the sound of salsa, with entertainment options ranging from exclusive fine dining restaurants to famous cigar lounges.
Located within cruising distance from the Bahamas, Cuba has become a preferred stop-off for Caribbean yacht charters as well as providing enough opportunities for itineraries to take place exclusively in its own waters. Indeed, with the diversity of its culture nicely mirrored in its diverse range of scenery, there’s plenty of options sure to satisfy any kind of guest. From mountain ranges to forests and plains, there’s also a number of reasons for the more adventurous charterers to get off their yacht and stretch their legs. With quaint bars and cafes situated in places which offer commanding views of Cuba, take everything in could not be more convenient nor memorable.
City life in Cuba provides an exciting complement to its tropical scenery. With an arts scene which rivals that of London, Los Angeles and New York, and a gastronomic scene which brings together some of the best chefs and dishes, visitors are sure to find their time on the island wholly unforgettable. What’s more, the nightlife around Havana is unquestionably of the most unique variety- where else in the world does salsa and cigars quite like the Cubans? In contrast, Bahia de Cabanas is home to beautiful bays and beaches as well as a number of reefs while the crystalline waters off the coast of Cayo Levisa provide some of the best snorkelling and diving in the region.
Located just off the north coast of Cuba is the impressive 200-mile long stretch of cays which constitute the Jardines del Rey archipelago. Known locally as the ‘Kings Gardens’, this collection of islands is a registered UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is consequently beautifully unspoilt. An island-hopper's paradise, the largely uninhabited beaches are ideal for enjoying a picnic ahead of a long walk around sunset.
