Jibacoa Cuba Resort Guide

If you are looking for a quiet romantic beach holiday then Jibacoa is just the place for you. Located just 38 miles from Havana, Jibacoa offers beautiful secluded Caribbean beaches which are perfect for sunbathing and swimming. Popular with couples looking for a relaxed holiday in Cuba, the resort is set on a stunning bay and offers accommodation to suit all budgets.

Jibacoa Beach itself is a secluded sheltered beach with low cliffs and beautiful green surrounding hills. Other beaches in the area include Puerto Escondido, El Abra and Boca de Jaruco. The beautiful clear blue warm seas and coastal breezes make perfect conditions for water sports at the beaches. These include diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and catamaran cruises. There are lots of dive sites, offshore reefs, shipwrecks and deep caves for scuba-divers to explore. Non-divers can enjoy snorkelling along the coastline which is teeming with colourful exotic sea life. For a great day out on your bargain holidays take a deep-sea fishing excursion or a relaxing boat trip.

Jibacoa has some beautiful countryside to explore, from green valleys and citrus plantations to tobacco fields and from tropical wildlife areas to areas offering stunning views. Visitors can explore the surrounding area by car, bicycle, horse-back or walking. Explore Cuba’s historical capital city Havana and the charming town of Santa Cruz and even take a romantic catamaran cruise to Cayo Blanco. For more great days out take a tour of a cigar factory, taste samples in a rum museum and enjoy a journey back in time on the Hershey Electric Railway.

During the day hotels offer Spanish lessons, dance lessons and games. Most of the hotels in Jibacoa offer live shows, discos, themed evenings and other evening entertainment along with excursions to the famous Tropicana Nightclub in Havana.

Jibacoa enjoys very little change in the temperature throughout the year. Winter temperatures average around 28C with summers seeing average temperatures of 30C. With long sunny days and warm waters, Jibacoa is perfect for beach holidays at any time of the year. Trade wind sea breezes help to keep the humidity down, especially during the winter months. Winter and spring are probably the best times to visit as humidity is lower than in the summer, rainfall is also lower and temperatures still hover around in the late 20’s. Christmas, New Year and Easter are also excellent times to visit Jibacoa.

Due to the fantastic tropical climate that Jibacoa enjoys, there are always plenty of great last minute holidays available to the resort all year round.
