The Foto al Vuelo 2023 contest will be held in Matanzas

Alongside international photographers you will be able to capture beautiful photographs of birds in their natural habitat in one of the most significant Ramsar (humid areas) locations of the Caribbean Sea, the Zapata swamp, an astonishing and magnificent part of nature.

It is not necessary to be a professional photographer or to have the latest photography equipment to sign up. In a friendly atmosphere, all you will need is an upbeat spirit to be part of the most fantastic landscapes of nature and engage in a unique experience of observing and learning about the fabulous Cuban fauna.

Got a Question?

No, there are no mandatory shots to visit Cuba. Cuba is not considered a risk country for zika, dengue, hepatitis B, malaria, typhoid and other tropical disease.

The only immunization you are required to have is for Yellow Fever. All the others are optional, so the best thing to do is to talk to your doctor or a travel medicine clinician about it.

As a general rule, you should avoid tap water in Cuba and stick to drinking bottled water. This includes mixed drinks made with tap water and beverages containing ice made from tap water, so ask for your drinks without ice. 

Cuba enjoys a tropical climate, with year-round temperate weather. We distinguish between two seasons: the wet season (May-October) and the dry season (November-April). But our advice is to travel to Cuba when you can and worry less about the weather in Cuba. There are benefits of traveling to Cuba during any month or any season. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong.

Nowadays almost every hotel has Wi-fi, normally for free. It is also possible to purchase internet for your mobile phone, so you don´t need to worry about not staying connected.

Cell phone coverage is generally available in Cuba´s large cities and tourist towns. Rural and remote areas may have less network coverage. Remember to activate global roaming with your service provider before leaving home.
