Cienfuegos Vacation Guide
Amidst all the Spanish influence in Cuba, Cienfuegos is a breath of French air and has now been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 16th-Century fort and charming city centre provide an atmosphere that will easily transport you to its colonial days while beautifully preserved casas crowd around an abandoned nuclear plant, providing Cienfuegos with a hint of Soviet intrigue. Vacations to Cienfuegos will introduce you to some truly expected sightseeing spots, including an above-ground graveyard and a statue dedicated to a young woman who died, as legend has it anyway, of a broken heart.
As you walk toward the Bahia de Cienfuegos, you soon realize why this city is often called the Pearl of the South. Its serene beaches remain uncrowded for most of the year, while restaurants in Punta Gorda will give you the dual benefit of cheap food and incredible views over the Bay. Just a short drive from Havana, Cienfuegos is the perfect place to vacation for a day or two before travelling further south to explore the rest of Cuba, or returning to the capital for your flight home.
Annual temperatures in Cienfuegos average 27°C, making this a warm vacation destination throughout the year. Temperatures rise to the low 30s in the summer, and the city receives most of its rainfall between June and early November, making it a lot more humid than during the dry season from November to May.
Cienfuegos vacations are most popular from December to April, so if this is when you want to visit, look for package deals as soon as you know your travel dates. For last minute trips and weekend vacations that won't burn a hole in your pocket, travel to Cienfuegos in the shoulder seasons — either in November or May. This is when prices for flights and accommodations will be lower, and you will encounter only occasional light showers.
