I haven’t been there but have always wanted to go.  I read a book called Dreaming in Cuban years ago and have been obsessed with Cuba ever since.  Please tell me all about it when you get back!

Are you from the USA?  Isn’t tourism to Cuba still banned for Americans (obvs just ignore this if you’re not from the USA)?

I really like the idea of an engagement anniversary celebration.  Fiance and I will have three of them before were married, so I’m sure it would help us feel like our engagement isn’t something dragging on forever but should be celebrated.  Good luck planning.

i have been to Cuba twice and LOVED it!!! (i lived in Canada my whole life up until 4 months ago). Do you know where in Cuba you want to go?

I went to Varadero both times. Basically if you do your research, you will find the the 2 best places are Varadero and Cayo Coco.  Since it would be your first time going, i would strongly suggest Varadero. Both places are known to have the most beautiful beaches EVER!!! I think its my experience of cuban beaches that made me want to get married on a beach.  The main difference between Cayo Coco and Varadero is that Varadero has more things to do. Cayo Coco is basically only about relaxation. Varadero is also close to the capital, Havana. I would highly recommend booking a day trip to Havana and seeing the Tropicana show at night – amazing!  I also highly recommend booking a day trip doing the catamaran cruise. Those were my fave things that I did when I went.  I also went to a dolphin type aquariam and got to swim with dolphins and do other cool things like hold onto their fins while they pulled us along in the water.  Anyway, I loved Cuba so much that I considered it as my wedding destination, but I can;t because I am on internship in the US this year  ๐Ÿ™

you will have an amazing honeymoon!!

ps. if there is one thing you take my advice on is to go see that Tropicana show after doing the day tour in Havana.


pps. its been so long since i went, but now i am getting all nostalgic…and just remembered the 2 night clubs i went to in Varadero if you are into to going out clubbing. One of them was called the Cave and the other was La Rumba.

We went to Cuba for my sister’s wedding and it was awesome! We stayed in Varadero at the Barcelo Solymar and I have no complaints. The service was awesome, the weather warm, and the beaches were stunning. The food left a little to be desired, I would bring some granola bars or crackers next time. We brought toys and coloring books from the dollar store to tip the maids with and they loved that. ( Also soaps and makeup and stuff) We swam with the dolphins which was amazing, took a catamaran tour and did the Havana day trip. I would go there again in a heartbeat.

My Fiance and I went to Cuba last year and we actually got engaged there! Aside from the cold weather we experienced in February, it was amazing. We were in Varadero and stayed at the Iberostar Laguna Azul, which is incredible! By far the most stunning resort we had seen (had to drive past all of them to get to it) and it had a great beach and the food was actually really good! The rooms were really nice, perfectly clean and everyone was really friendly.

We took the double decker bus into Varadero to go shopping at the market which was really fun. The bus picks you up at the end of the driveway from the resort and then lets you off pretty much infront of the market. We got tons of souvenirs for really good prices there.

We also did the catamaran trip to Cayo Blanco and swam with the dolphins. It was really fun, and a nice way to spend the day.
