Before starting their Yacht Charter Cuba cruise, most Yacht Charter Cuba crews visit the capital Havanna: Gaudily coloured classic cars from the 50ies, colossal Colonial buildings between completely derelict buildings, music in the style of Buena Vista Social Club on every corner, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara – revolutionaries of old gaze from billboards everywhere, long white beaches, Caribbean lush nature, the scent of Havana-cigars and rum of the brand of Havana Club, a silver life-size Hemingway-figure on the counter of one of his favourite bars La Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio – the cliché is perfect right down to the smallest detail. When sailing the coast of Cuba on a charter yacht, you should allow for at least two days of Havana and sightseeing. Then the journey takes you across the land towards South to the Yacht Charter base in Cienfuegos, where the Cuban state tourism organisation Cubacan has built a marina perfectly equipped for Yacht Charter. Cienfuegos itself is worth seeing; UNESCO has declared the town World Heritage Site.
Sailing waters and main destination for the Yacht Charter Cuba cruises are the south coast and the archipelago of Cayo Largo. the Canarreos archipelago and the Isla de La Joventud. Dreamlike bays (with the exception of the Bay of Pigs, which is a restricted area since it was embattled in the 60ies), wild mangrove swamps – there aren’t any marinas for Yacht Charter Cuba crews, although many good anchorages and nature pure. Since there are only very few restaurants on the way, it is advisable to plan the meals aboard for the duration of the Yacht Charter Cuba cruise well ahead and stock up the pantry before departure. You’ll find Colonial history present in almost every town. A visit to the small town of Trinidad in particular, that boasts lots of history in addition of bars and cafes, is a must for Yacht Charter Cuba sailors – just as the purchase of rum and cigarettes as a souvenir.
