JAZZ.FM91 & Sunwing International Jazz Safari to Havana
January 8 – January 22
Sorry! Booking for this event has closed.
JAZZ.FM91 presents the International Jazz Safari to Cuba, in partnership with Sunwing.
For those who missed out on our Cuban excursion in late 2019, don’t worry — we’ve added two more in January, 2020.
On these safaris, we’ll head to the Sanctuary at Grand Memories Varadero for four days of sun, sand, sea and nightlife, before heading to Havana to experience the best music and culture that Cuba has to offer. There, we’ll stay at the historic and iconic Hotel Nacional de Cuba, which is soaked in the history of pre-revolution Cuba and is situated adjacent to the Malecón and some of Cuba’s best music venues. On the night before departure, we’ll visit the legendary Tropicana Club cabaret — a Havana experience not to be missed.
All safaris are guided and curated by the inexhaustible Jaymz Bee.
For those who want to travel with a smaller group and access intimate hidden music venues, the Jan. 8-15 safari ought to be the one for you. And for those who want to be there for the Havana Jazz Festival, you’ll want to join us on Jan. 15-22.
Either way, you will not want to miss out on a trip to the home of some of the world’s greatest music and a unique culture in the Caribbean.

Hotel Nacional de Cuba
Dating back to the 1930s, Hotel Nacional de Cuba is a splendid art deco hotel with a rich history. Renowned for hosting A-list celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner, and public figures like Winston Churchill and Jean-Paul Sartre, this stately hotel is a hallowed symbol of Cuban history and culture. Perched above the Bahía de la Habana with its long, sweeping driveway dotted with vintage American cars, its storied walls hold many treasures, from the palm-flanked pool, to the sloping gardens overlooking the Malecón, to the famed Cabaret Parisien. An oasis of tranquility and style, the hotel beckons guests to relax on its luxurious sofas and lounge under its shady palms with a cocktail or two. A place where music is celebrated, the hotel comes alive with Cuba’s finest musical talents and live shows nightly. Its refined elegance, history, and old-world hospitality make it a great choice for a Cuban getaway.
