Cuba is a Caribbean destination without comparison, pristine and exotic; hiding many secrets such as the magnificent fishing that is on offer.
We have been fishing in Cuba for over twenty years now and it is undoubtedly one of our favourite saltwater destinations.
Bonefish of an excellent average size of around 4lbs, tarpon that frequently tip the scales at 100lbs+ and, encouragingly, shots at permit are now ever more frequent as we and the guides begin to understand this incredibly pernickety fish. However, it does not end here; the beauty of fishing Jardines de La Reina is the extraordinary variety of species that one can fish for.
In addition, the city of Havana offers a great insight into the mixed colonial history of the island. ‘Colonial decay’ is the best way to describe it and a tour of the old quarter in either a horse-drawn carriage or on foot is a must. Cigars, chrome plated cars and the last vestiges of Castro’s empire are experiences that should be at the top of any traveller’s wish list.
