Information & Tips for Havana

Havana is the largest city and capital of Cuba with around 2 million inhabitants and a variety of touristic activities and attractions. Havana is also a good starting point to explore the rest of the country.

The city is connected by air to the Americas (mainly USA and Canada but also Central and South America) and partly also to the European continent. Cheap flights to Havana and to Cuba in general are often available thanks to the large number of charter airlines serving the country. It is also possible to get great deals on scheduled airlines (Iberia, Air France, Air Europe, etc…) for under €500 to Cuba. In addition, there are often good deals in business class.

The Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Havana is in the dry season between December and May. Little rain and warm temperatures provide good touristic conditions and are a welcome change from the otherwise rather humid temperatures in the Caribbean.

Information & Tips for Cuba

Cuba has developed its very own charm throughout the decades of embargoes and socialism and stands out clearly from the other islands in the Caribbean. In addition to the many fantastic beaches, cigars, rum, salsa and American vintage cars attract numerous tourists to Cuba every year despite the difficult political situation. Nevertheless, the island is still not nearly as touristically developed as many other islands in the Caribbean.

Best Time to Visit

Although Cuba has warm temperatures between 25 – 30°C all year round, the dry winter months between November and April are particularly popular. During this time the humidity is clearly lower than in the high summer during the rainy season.

For travel between June and October, one should be aware of the risk of hurricanes. The last hurricane to hit Cuba was “Irma” in September 2017.

Immigration and Visa Requirements

To enter Cuba, most EU citizens needs a passport valid for at least six months and a visa in the form of a tourist card (A1 visa) for up to 30 days. These must be obtained from the Cuban embassy in Berlin before entering the country. At least one person must appear there in person, but can also obtain the visa for other companions. This costs 22€ for the person appearing in person and 25€ for all other companions. It is much easier to purchase the tourist card directly from your airline: (all data without guarantee)

  • Condor: 25€, in Frankfurt/Main at the ticket counter or transit area
  • Eurowings: 25€, in Cologne/Bonn at the check-in desk / in Munich at the ticket counter & check-in desk
  • Air Canada: Will be handed out free of charge on board before landing. In addition, however, an electronic travel permit (eTA) is required for the transfer in Canada!

Additionally you have to show valid health insurance coverage in Cuba, e.g. a travel health insurance. If possible, the policy should be in Spanish. German or English policies are also recognized nowadays. Otherwise you have to take out a Cuban insurance at the airport for 2 – 3 CUC per day.
