How soon should you book a trip to Cuba?

We often get asked: how far in advance should I book my trip to Cuba?

There’s no hard deadline per se, and our travelers range across the spectrum from last minute bookings to people who have planned everything months in advance.

The biggest two factors are the season of travel and your preference for lodging. If you’re planning to travel to Cuba during the winter holidays, Jazz Festival, spring break, or another busy time of year – then you definitely want to start booking your trip sooner than later. That way you can lock in your flight and make sure all your ducks are in a row before prices go up and everything is booked.

Also, if you want to stay at a B&B or private apartment (the most economical option), then it’s definitely advisable to book early. There are some amazing B&Bs in Cuba, but they can fill up far in advance.

If you prefer to stay at a hotel, then there’s not as big a rush. Unless it’s peak season, the hotels can usually accommodate even the most last minute travelers.

“What about the visa” you might ask. It’s no problem! We can get you the visa right away once you sign up for a trip; we can even overnight it to you if needed. The bigger concern is definitely making sure you are able to get your flight and lodging booked.

Whether you want to plan a spontaneous trip to Cuba or are looking to plan something a year from now, feel free to reach out! We’ll be happy to help you plan an incredible trip.
