Havana: Camping

Capital of Cuba

Camping is very much a local’s holiday in Cuba, with Fidel Castro’s Popular Camping Program encouraging Cubans to take their holidays on the island’s camp sites. If you do wish to take a camping holiday in Havana, it is advised that you make arrangements well in advance, and ensure that you find a campsite that welcomes tourists. In addition, be prepared to camp up to 45 minutes out of the city centre. Ultimately, if you wish to see the city of Havana in all its glory, then a camping holiday is not ideal.
