So you’ve already booked your trip and the countdown is on, but what outfits should you pack? You want to be comfy while looking good. We totally get it! We’ve been visiting since 2015 so we’ve nailed it down for you. We’ll guide you from head to toe.

Hats

Hats are super recommended. This will protect you from the warm, Cuban sun throughout our walks in the city and while we hang beachside. Bring your cutest sunhat, cap, etc.



Sunglasses

Sunglasses are must so don’t forget ‘em! You’ll wanna protect yourself from that bright sun…especially if you’ve had one too many mojitos the night before. We’ve all been there!

Tops

Light breathable fabrics like cotton and linen are your bff here. Cuba is warm, typically in the 80s, so tees and tank tops are advisable. Everyone is usually dressed very casual so you won’t stand out. A light jacket or long sleeve is also advisable for evenings depending on the month you’ll be visiting.

Dresses

Casual dresses made with a lightweight fabric are perfect, not only for photo ops, but they’re so comfy during a day spent exploring the city. Something a little flowy or loose will be comfortable to walk in under the warm sun.

Bottoms

Shorts for men and women are the way to go! Your favorite denim shorts or something in cotton are great choices. Skirts and light weight pants are other great options. If you’re doing a fancier dinner out, you’ll want to switch out from the shorts into pants, skirt or dress.

Shoes

Think comfy! You’ll be doing a lot of walking. A lot of the roads and sidewalks are uneven or cobble stoned, which will do a number on your feet in heels. We know it sounds cute for that photo with a classic car and if you prefer fashion over function thats totally cool too, but don’t say we didn’t warn ya! We recommend you opt for stylish sandals, flats, or sneakers. You’ll thank us later!

Basically, Cuba is very warm so as long as you keep that in mind while packing you’ll be good. Overall, a more casual look will be perfect for your time in Cuba. Bring a nice, “smart casual” outfit or two for a night out or dinner, but other than that casual is the way to go. If you have any more specific questions, shoot us an email.
