Miami and Fort Lauderdale are your airports of choice to reach Cuba from Florida, with flights leading to multiple destinations. You can also get to Havana from Orlando and Tampa on direct flights. When in Cuba, get ready to explore a country that, in many ways, seems frozen in time, with lavishly refurbished 1950's sedans and convertibles prowling the streets and classic jazz in the nightclubs. Cuba also offers you unspoiled beaches that seem to stretch for miles, and the ultimate gift for friends back home when you stop at a tobacco plantation and pick up some treasured Cuban cigars. Since tourist travel opened up to Cuba recently, you have quite a few flights available to get you there from Florida.

While you can certainly enjoy white sand beaches and colonial Spanish architecture in many parts of Florida, Cuba brings a charm all its own to these attractions. If you land in Havana, you'll want to take a city tour in one of the spectacularly revived 1950's convertibles that serve as informal taxis, but get out to do some walking as well. A visit to Old Havana is like time traveling back to the 1600's, and a walk along the Malecon, the 5-mile promenade running along the Havana waterfront, is an instant introduction to all that is Cuba. Head to the soft white sands of Varadero Beach, and stay up late to catch amazing jazz in a local nightclub.
