3 Amazing Sites in Cuba

For many, the dream of a sunny tropical wedding makes it a no-brainer to choose your destination wedding in Cuba. But Cuba has much more to offer than pristine beaches for your wedding ceremony. With a blend of natural beauty and historic locations, Cuba has plenty of gorgeous sites that also make it an ideal place to stay for your honeymoon. Here’s a closer look at some of the best sites Cuba has to offer.

1.    Old Havana

No trip to Cuba is complete without a stop at Old Havana. The historic district of the nation’s capital is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site thanks to its beautifully preserved structures and cobblestone streets. Gorgeous architecture with brightly-colored walls offer a glimpse 200 years back in time, with plenty of fun cultural experiences to be had.

Some of the most popular sites in Old Havana include the Plaza de la Catedral, the Plaza Vieja, and the fortress Castillo de la Real Fuerza. Walking along the Malecon allows young couples to catch views of both pastel-painted buildings and the ocean.

2.    Parque Nacional Vinales

Cuba’s geography is much more varied than the beaches that serve as prime spots for a destination wedding. The Parque Nacional Vinales is a perfect example of Cuba’s varied landscapes, with limestone cliffs creating a sharp contrast with the low-lying agricultural areas.

Visitors to this gorgeous park can enjoy horseback riding and hiking, offering a chance to catch glimpses of local wildlife and gain an understanding of what Cuba is like when you step away from the beach. Nature lovers should also check out the Zapata Swamp, which is home to crocodiles and 150 unique bird species.

3.    Castillo de San Pedro del Morro

Located outside the city of Santiago de Cuba, the Castillo de San Pedro del Moro is a prime example of 17th-century Spanish fortresses. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fortress served as both a prison and a protective barrier against pirates during its time of use. The fortress’s prominent location atop a seaside cliff also offers excellent views for tourists.

Conveniently located to Santiago de Cuba, the Castillo del Morro also offers easy access to several other historic sites in the area, such as the Diego Velazquez Museum.

Parting Thoughts

Whether you want to spend your days relaxing on the beach or checking out unique architecture, Cuba has something to offer for almost any couple. Don’t just plan your destination wedding in this island nation — make sure your plans include plenty of fun honeymoon activities as well!


  1. Actually Trump did ask Cuba for her return. In June 2017, President Donald Trump gave a speech “cancelling the Cuban thaw policies of his predecessor Barack Obama. A condition of making a new deal between the United States and Cuba is the release of political prisoners and the return of fugitives from justice. Trump specifically called for the return of “the cop–killer Joanne Chesimard. Previously the United States Congress passed a non-binding resolution in September 1998, asking Cuba for the return of Shakur as well as 90 fugitives believed by Congress to be residing in Cuba; House Concurrent Resolution 254 passed 371–0 in the House and by unanimous consent in the Senate including then chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Representative Maxine Waters of California. However a short while later In an open letter to Fidel Castro, she explained that members of the Caucus (including herself) were against Shakur”s extradition but had mistakenly voted for the bill, which was placed on the accelerated suspension calendar. Waters explained her opposition to FBI program COINTELPRO “illegal, clandestine political persecution. Just wanted to include this bit about Maxine Waters cause while she”s often held up as “Mad Maxine for ridicule she really is the total, subversive scumbag hellbent on impeachment. She needs to be censured and removed from Congress. Her attempts to try and downplay her histrionic calls for violence are phony and fraudulent.
