Traveling to Cuba during peak travel periods
Since the US has started to normalize relations with Cuba, many more people are visiting Havana than in the past. The number of visitors in Havana far exceeds the number of hotel rooms in Havana. If you would like to stay at any hotel in Old Havana or any high end hotel in Cuba, you should consider booking at least 6 months in advance (more for winter).
In the past it wasn't as hard to get high end rooms in Havana and Old Havana during the summer months, but those days are over, at least for now. If you want high end hotels or a hotel in Old Havana you must plan very far in advance to have a good chance at getting a hotel you want.
