The latest on Cuba travel after Hurricane IrmaOur Magazine

Here’s the latest on the situation in Cuba following Hurricane Irma, for those considering travel to the island later this year or in 2018.

The part of the island most directly impacted was the northeastern coast and beach resorts hundreds of miles from Havana.  The U.S. Embassy in Havana reports today (9/14/17) that “Cuban authorities have made progress in clearing debris following Hurricane Irma.  Major roads are now mostly open in Havana.” Power and water have been restored to most of Havana, and the new Kempinski hotel tells us that it is unaffected except for minor electrical issues being repaired this week. Travel to other commonly-visited places like Viñales, Cienfuegos and Trinidad will not be impacted.

We remain in regular contact with our team in Havana and the Kempinski, and will continue to monitor progress.  We expect that all trips from November onward will be able to proceed as planned, with only minor adjustments such as some of the Havana paladares where guests will dine.

We look forward to welcoming visitors to Havana in the coming months.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or to make plans for future Cuba travel.
