Cuba has a ton of history that is well known, and without Havana,
Cuba would be missing its heart.
The first stop in Cuba for the majority of visitors, Havana as a city really sums up where Cuba is right now, stuck in the past but trying to push forward into a city of the present and future.
Havana’s location along a magnificent deep-sea bay with a sheltered harbour made the city a prime location for economic development from Spanish colonial times in the early 16th century.
The city’s Old Havana (La Habana Vieja) district and its fortifications were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982.
Havana, like much of Cuba, enjoys
a pleasant year-round climate that is tempered by the island’s position in the belt of the trade winds and by the warm offshore currents.
Average temperatures range from 72 °F (22 °C) in January and February to 82 °F (28 °C) in August. Rainfall is heaviest in October and lightest from February through April.
