Holidays for Families with Babies & Younger Children

Every year we welcome many families with younger children and infants to Cuba, who enjoy the amazing safe sandy beaches, wide variety of family friendly travel experiences and warm and welcoming locals.

Our travel experts have travelled to Cuba with young children and we have combined our experience to create bespoke itineraries that work for families. We consider the family friendly details that will allow you and your younger children and babies to enjoy Cuba. We can provide useful detailed information when crafting your holiday, such as journey times, and dining options plus much more.

We know that play areas, baby pools, and bottle warming services are important as well as interconnecting rooms and single parent discounts.

Family Holidays. Sample Itineraries

For those looking for a family-friendly holiday, and are travelling with toddlers or younger children,  we’ve hand-picked six destinations that should give you plenty of choices to organise something really special. How you mix them is entirely up to you.

Some of our clients prefer a longer stay by the beach; others prefer to skip Varadero altogether to spend more time in Trinidad or the Cayos. The unspoiled beaches of Cayo Santa Maria are increasingly popular. Trinidad is such a charming colonial town surrounded by verdant mountains and the  sea, that is not uncommon our clients ask us to make the arrangements for them to stay there a few nights and enjoy the lively town culture. Moka and Vinales boast the best of Cuba’s countryside. Kids will love exploring caves, swimming in rivers and natural pools, the waterfalls and several activities including horse-riding and gentle walks along the rivers and mogotes.

When you speak to us, we can discuss your interests and expectations and suggest the best itinerary based on your plans for this trip
