Santiago De Cuba Vacation Guide
Far away from the political buzz of Havana, vacations to Santiago de Cuba are all about discovering the country's roots in music, dance, culture, cuisine, and architecture. Drawing on inspiration from its Haitian and Dominican neighbours as well as its home-grown Cuban traditions, the city is a fascinating mix of varied influences that you will never tire of exploring.
Santiago de Cuba has a long association with poets like Jose Maria Heredia, entrepreneurs and businessmen like Emilio Bacardi, and political heavyweights like Fidel Castro. And though there are museums, monuments, and entire streets dedicated to these famous Cubans, what really draws the most crowds to Santiago de Cuba is the vibrant Carnival celebrations during which you can hear almost every genre of Cuban music played to perfection. Whether you're coming here to dance your heart out, immerse yourself in the city's rich history, or gaze out onto the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, don't leave the country without at least a short vacation in Santiago de Cuba.
If you're visiting from colder climes, it will feel like summer all year round in Santiago de Cuba. On average, temperatures range between the mid-20s to low 30s (Celsius), and most visitors choose to book Santiago de Cuba vacations in the dry season between November and April. If you're thinking about a last minute winter vacation here, think again. Cheap package deals are scarce and the best way to get a bargain is to book as early as you can.
Vacation deals will be cheaper in the rainy season from May onwards, but as far as possible, avoid visiting the city in the September-October hurricane season which is when Santiago de Cuba receives most of its rainfall. For discount all inclusive packages and better weather, book in early November or late April, before most of the tourist crowds arrive.
