Are you thinking to travel to Cuba with kids? In this case, Cuba is presented as a perfect country to share and enjoy experiences with children due to the great offer of activities and places to visit. The island is culture in pure state, a place to learn from the past and a new way of life completely different to our way of life, and a villa rental in Cuba is the best option to live all these experiences.
There is another way for entertainment not based on amusement parks or mega-aquariums. In Cuba, you need to think outside the box and take advantage of the culture of the country. Baseball, considered as the national sport, is very present in every provincial city, where a good idea is getting closer to one of their stadiums. In fact, is very common to see children playing baseball in the streets.
Another good plan could be visiting a local Casa de la Cultura, which is a community cultural center, designed to maintain activities that promote culture among its inhabitants. There are 327 Casas de la Cultura spread over all the territory, so it’s easy to find one of them in any city. Especially in Havana, the cultural offer increases and small museums dedicated to old cars, chocolate, playing cards or Leonardo da Vinci are the perfect options for kids.
But, indeed, Havana keeps a sweet plan for children. Coppelia is the name of the best ice cream shop in the country, and Cubans affirm that is the best of the world too. Going to Coppelia to eat ice cream is a ritual. Joining some of the queues at one of the different entrances and waiting to be called is part of the process. A good opportunity, moreover, to take the pulse of the city.
On the other hand, if your kids love the nature and have imagined the life in the jungle or in a desert island, in Cuba there are some places where they will be able to give free reign to their imagination. From Playa Ancón it’s possible to visit by catamaran two small desert islands and inside the country you can find El Nicho, incredible waterfalls with natural swimming pools.
Undoubtedly, if you travel with kids a villa rental in Cuba can be a great idea. An entire villa offers you privacy, comfort and, in general, a place where your kids will feel like home.
