Exploring Cuba as a family with older children offers a fascinating and rewarding holiday. You can share experiences together, as well as allowing younger travellers to enjoy some independence and parents the opportunity to relax!

We have travelled throughout Cuba with our own families and using our excellent local knowledge, we have carefully prepared holiday choices to suit the whole family, which will keep everybody happy and entertained whilst you are away.

We know first-hand the accommodation that work best for families, and those with family concierge services, interconnecting rooms or bungalows allowing you to stay together but with your own space and privacy. We can advise you on those whose facilities, entertainment, and activities are best suited for you.

There’s peace of mind that you will have our 24-hour local emergency contact details, and that we can provide assistance booking known local taxi drivers – perfect for older teens to explore independently.

We can also give advice on family friendly sight-seeing in Havana and further afield, and our specially tailored experiences are perfect for reconnecting you as a family. We’ll even book family-friendly restaurants for you.

For the budget-conscious, we can advise on the best value family-style accommodation, and let you know how to maximise single parent discounts.

Plus, if you are a family with special needs, we promise to bend over backwards and help make your holiday as stress free and enjoyable as we can.

Family Holidays. Sample Itineraries

For those looking for a family-friendly holiday, and are travelling with toddlers or younger children,  we’ve hand-picked six destinations that should give you plenty of choices to organise something really special. How you mix them is entirely up to you.

Some of our clients prefer a longer stay by the beach; others prefer to skip Varadero altogether to spend more time in Trinidad or the Cayos. The unspoiled beaches of Cayo Santa Maria are increasingly popular. Trinidad is such a charming colonial town surrounded by verdant mountains and the  sea, that is not uncommon our clients ask us to make the arrangements for them to stay there a few nights and enjoy the lively town culture. Moka and Vinales boast the best of Cuba’s countryside. Kids will love exploring caves, swimming in rivers and natural pools, the waterfalls and several activities including horse-riding and gentle walks along the rivers and mogotes.

When you speak to us, we can discuss your interests and expectations and suggest the best itinerary based on your plans for this trip
