Cuba Destination Weddings

Say “si” to a destination wedding in beautiful Cuba!

With perfect weather, pristine beaches, spectacular scenery and picturesque architecture, it’s no wonder so many couples choose to host their all inclusive destination wedding and honeymoon in Cuba. Exchange your vows on the pristine white-sand beaches of Varadero, walk down the aisle in the lush gardens of Holguin, host your beach wedding in the Cayos or drive off into the sunset in a classic American car in Havana. No matter which Cuban destination you choose, there are plenty of resorts to choose from for a range of different budgets and vacation styles. When you and your wedding party aren’t sipping on mojitos by the beach, you can explore all that the island has to offer with a Sunwing Experiences excursion. Cruise down Cuba’s sparkling coast on a catamaran ride, take a Jeep tour through the beautiful countryside or snorkel in the colourful coral reefs just off the coast.
