The Ultimate Charter Destination: Cuba in 5 amazing photos

Cuba, once an unlikely wish list destination, today is a reality. There is no better way to access the once inaccessible than via an exclusively designed yacht charter. Super Yachts are cutting the red tape so elite travelers can cut through the Caribbean Sea onto Cuban shores. Travelers will experience a contradiction of time, stepping back into the past where time stood still, while embarking on Cuba’s future.

Cuba entices with its culture; stroll through the cobblestone streets of Old Havana, visit 16th century castles and untouched neo classical and art deco architecture, while 1950 American cars cruise past. Experience what is now being referred to as the “new” Cuban revolution, the Cuban food movement. Organic farm to table restaurants are springing up literally on the farmland.

Nightfall in Cuba brings cultured classical ballets and world-class philharmonic orchestras, but one should not end the evening without experiencing the authentic and local sound of Cuban Salsa.

Many may begin to travel to Cuba, but an elite few, will experience the island via yacht, accessing pristine coves, pioneering anchorages and cruising grounds. The marine life and coral reefs are unspoiled providing divers and snorkelers a unique experience.  Local environmentalists are available to provide insight to Cuba’s Coral Reef Protection Program.

Explore the Peninsula of Varadero’s caves and nearby chains of virgin cays. Escape tourism 100 miles south of Havana on Cayo Largo, where your only decision will be whether to first lounge on the 17 miles of white sandy beaches or dive the black coral reef.

This yacht adventure will be epic, but maybe even an opportunity to be part of something larger than just travel, but history.
