Hurricanes Irma and Maria

Cuba is open again for business!

Cubans have every reason to be proud of their quick response to Hurricane Irma. Most of the country is back to normal and the even most damaged hotels on the northern coast will be reopening in November 2017. All Cubania trips will be running without any changes to the itinerary.

Hurricanes Irma and Maria swept through the Caribbean in September 2017 and caused incalculable damage on many islands. Irma hit the Northern Coast of Cuba over 3 days in early September 2017. Fortunately, Hurricane Maria did not touch Cuba at all, and authorities were able to focus on clearing streets and reconnecting power to communities affected by Hurricane Irma. This was the biggest storm to hit Cuba in decades; Havana and some small towns and villages on the Northern Coast of Cuba were flooded as they were hit by the storm surge and huge waves. Many hotels on the Northern Keys were also damaged by high winds and flooding.

Roads in Havana are now clear and power was restored to the city within a few days of Irma passing. Flooding receded within a few days and homes were cleaned and repairs are under way. All hotels in Havana except one are open again for business. Those hotels which were damaged in Varadero, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo will, without exception, all reopen in November 2017.
