Cuban History & Island Info
Circumnavigating Cuba has been popular since Christopher Columbus first set foot here in 1492. The famous explorer liked the tropical paradise so much, he claimed it in the name of Spain. Five centuries later, Ernest Hemingway felt the same, planting his flag and living in the outskirts of Havana for over twenty years.
On a Key West to Cuba charter boat trip, you can discover the island’s colorful history for yourself. No place in the world has quite the same blend of cultures and traditions. You’ll appreciate why Cuba’s nickname, Pearl of the Antilles, is a particularly accurate moniker. Being on Duval street is nice by why not have an authentic Cuban experience instead?
Cubas Untouched Beauty
Fortunately, Cuba still has much of the extraordinary raw beauty Columbus so appreciated— endless pristine beaches of pure white sand, sparkling turquoise waters, verdant, rugged mountains. Guided excursions into the interior can be arranged on the spur of the moment locally or planned in advance by Key West Charter Boat.
The food alone is justification enough to visit this island nation of eleven-million people. In addition to the exceptional regional fare, be sure to order the national dish of Cuba, ropa vieja. Local adaptations aside, ropa vieja is made of shredded flank steak in an aromatic tomato sauce base, served with black beans, yellow rice, plantains, and fried yuca—nearly always accompanied by beer.
The gastronomic masterpiece is both delicious and affordable, costing approximately nine Cuban pesos ($9.00 U.S. dollars) per serving. No wonder so many people return to Cuba year after year for vacation.
Ernest Hemingways Secret Retreat
Hemingway journeyed to Cuba for several reasons, not least of which was the world-class fishing. The warm waters of the Gulf Stream flow the entire length of the island’s north side, attracting spectacular Sailfish, Black Fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and a diverse assortment of other sport fish.
Key West Charter Boat can put you in the fighting chair of a sport fishing yacht trolling Cuban waters in a matter of a few hours. Surprisingly, Key West to Cuba distance is substantially shorter than Miami’s proximity to the Bahamas. Journey to the southern coast of this internationally acclaimed fishing destination and you’ll be in the Caribbean Sea, where the daily catch could easily include mammoth Tiger and Hammerhead sharks.
Our Cuba Charter was absolutely stunning, to say the least. We took our boat all over Cuba, visited fabulous beaches & explored local villages. Amazing.
No Key West to Cuba trip would be complete without spending at least a day in Havana. Once a playground for the rich and famous, Hollywood starlets and business tycoons were found here nightly, gambling in casinos and taking in a show at the world-famous Tropicana Nightclub. Havana in the 1950s was an “anything goes” town of fame and occasional infamy. Today the high life has disappeared, old-world charm lingers.
Stroll the streets of Old Havana and you’ll feel a mixture of cultural influences that are uniquely Cuban, from the conservative architecture of a Spanish cathedral to plazas lined with brightly colored building facades. Stop along the way and sample some of the city’s famous street food, including Tostones—deep-fried plantains served with a variety of dipping sauces.
Any walk through Old Havana is sure to pass under clotheslines strung between apartment buildings and have an encounter with at least one vintage 1950s-era Ford or Chevy automobile, still in operational condition and often used as taxis.
The Richness Of Cuban Culture
In Cuba, music feels like it’s a religion of its own, as sacred and loved. Some of the finest musicians you’ll ever hear can be found playing in places like Plaza Vieja and Plaza de Armas. So do what the locals do: sit, enjoy a cup of Cuban coffee, and partake in a little people watching.
Whether you travel from Key West to Cuba on a Hemingway excursion, fishing expedition, or simply to tour and experience a magnificent jewel of the Caribbean, you’ll discover Cuban citizens to be welcoming and engaging.
