Dia de la Rebel
Cuba Dancing Havana

When & Where Dia de la Rebel in Cuba occurs 26th July all over Cuba. The best place to be is Santiago de Cuba and then Havana.


Carnaval in Cuba This lasts for 3 days. However the build up lasts for weeks. Banners, posters, & placards line the streets. Graffiti is not condoned, it’s encouraged ! well graffiti promoting the Communist kitsch / The 26 Brigade is encouraged.

After the patriotic parades and political speeches, a multitude of endless concerts and street parties ensue. In Santiago De Cuba go to Avenida Victoriano Garzón, this is where it goes off. Forget the other Caribbean countries or Americas, nobody does music like the Cubans. Hot, sweaty, sexy nights.

Where to stay There are great casa particulars (bed & breakfast) in Cuba available here. Getting there There are flights to Cuba from Paris, Amsterdam, Canada and many other worldwide locations. Book your flights to Cuba here.

Carnaval in Cuba

If you want to get out of Habana city for the day go to Playa Del Este. it's 20Kms away use a coco taxi - they will wait for you. But if you are going to the beach in Cuba always bring your own food and drink. Shops & bars on beaches are difficult to find once you leave a resort/hotel/casa particular.

Why Batista the Cuban dictator put Fidel Castro in jail. When he was released Fidel fled to Mexico where he met Che Guevara. They decided to return to Cuba and create a revolution on the 26th July by creating the "26 Brigade" movement.
