Known for its vibrant culture, friendly people and amazing landscapes, Cuba has been chosen several times as one of the best tourist destinations by reliable sources such as the New York Times. However, you might still be unsure of why you should choose to visit Cuba in 2022. If that is the case, keep reading. We promise you that by the end of this article all your doubts will disappear.
Reasons to travel to Cuba
Take note of the best reasons to visit Cuba in 2022. The island has a lot to offer you, adventure, culture and incredible landscapes.
An “unspoiled” treasure
One of the main charms of the island and also one of the biggest reasons why travel to Cuba in 2022 is a great idea, is the fact that Cuba is still a virgin country in many senses. No big corporations have landed on the island yet, so visiting the cities of Cuba is like going back in time. From old American cars still being operated to eclectic clothes, the combination of objects from the 1950s to the 1990s with modern goods such as smart TVs or phones is something to be witnessed at least once in a lifetime.
A natural paradise
Last year, National Geographic published a scientific article explaining how the biodiversity of Cuba has greatly benefited from the political and geographical isolation of the island. It is no secret that Cuba is best known for its breathtaking beaches but you might be surprised to know that the island also has a unique rural environment. The fauna and flora living under this diverse ecosystem is very abundant, and make Cuba the perfect destination to enjoy nature while lying on a beach, hiking or camping.
At Espíritu Travel we are aware of the importance of preserving nature at all costs. For that reason, among other initiatives, all our trips to Cuba are carbon neutral and we actively collaborate with local organizations to conserve animal welfare.

A safe destination
We know that when deciding your next travel destination, safety is always one of the first factors to take into account. According to the latest US Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) report, Cuba is a pretty safe travel destination. Even though pickpockets and scams are something to watch out for on the island, this official organization assures that tourists rarely experience safety issues in Cuba.
Of course, nowadays we can not talk about safety without mentioning COVID-19. At the moment, around 90% of the population of Cuba has received at least one dose of the vaccine and there are strict measures set in place to visit Cuba in 2022.

A country with a rich culture of music and dance
Another good reason why travel to Cuba should be on your to-do list, is its magical musical rhythms. Fusion bands that combine very different styles such as rap or jazz performed on every corner of the island. From street performers to club music the rhythms of the island will captivate you. For the very same reason, Cubans are very good dancers. Take the opportunity to learn from them and try to dance rumba or conga in one of their local clubs.
Cuba has tropical weather which means temperatures are above 20 degrees all around the year. Then, why visit Cuba during winter and spring? This is the best time to travel to the island because the likelihood of rain is lower and temperatures are milder. However, to avoid crowds you could also consider traveling to Cuba over summer but you should keep in mind that temperatures will be higher and that hurricane season runs from June through November.
