When to go

The high season for visitors is Dec - Apr when the weather is usually sunny, mostly dry and not too humid, though there can be cool days. Hurricane and tropical storms are possible Aug - Nov and this is when most rain falls. Rainfall and cloud is more frequent than the areas to the east, because of the altitude and attracted by the mountains.

Language

Spanish.

Getting local currency

Bring your local currency needs (Cuban Convertible Pesos) with you from Havana or another large town where there are banks and money exchanges (cadecas).

NB: The more valuable convertible peso (CUC) has been reserved for use in the tourism sector and foreign trade. In October 2013, as part of a package of economic reforms its value will be gradually unified with the lower-value CUP, ending a system resented by ordinary Cubans.

Time difference

GMT -5 hours; usually there is daylight saving in the summer but it is a moveable feast.

Getting there

A scenic journey by winding road from Havana (74 km) takes up to 2 hours.

Combines with

A visit to the Viñales Valley, further west (132 km).
