Havana: When to Book
Capital of Cuba
If you’re planning on staying in a hotel in Havana during the peak months of December and January then be sure to book well in advance. Some of the famous landmark hotels in the city get booked up very fast, and prices get steeper as the year goes on. We would advise booking accommodation up to 12 weeks in advance of peak season, and 4-8 weeks in advance during the rest of the year. If you are simply traveling around then it’s still a good idea to book. It is also essential to remember that Cuban law states that you must have a hotel or licensed accommodation (you need specific permission to stay with a resident, even if they are a friend) for the first night.
