Like many people, you might have scheduled your Cuban getaway to escape from the colder months of your home country to the warmer “Cube”.

If you are not used to the heat of Cuba, you might have found the heat of the sun to be somewhat daunting, and you quickly learned why the locals walk around in clothing made from breathable wear.

Cuba really is not a good place for polyester. Whether they are going out for dinner or for an extended night on the town, Cubans really are an elegant bunch.

Sure, you can emulate their style, and you probably should (when in Rome remember), but you are at a distinct disadvantage. You can look the part, but do you actually know where to go?

Is that bar outside an authentic slice of nightlife in Cuba, or is it a tourist trap, confused? There is not exactly a shortage of bars and nightlife venues in the country, so if anything, the choice can be a little overwhelming here.

Not to worry we have got you covered with some of the best destinations for a night on the island, don't hesitate to contact RocApply for any queries.

Having come to Cuba, you must witness a top salsa/timba band. Discos cover a multiplicity of scenes, from the glitzy tourist venue to a smoky, hectic real Cuban locale is all there is here.

The music often varies from night to night depending on the Cuban mood. In recent years, a thriving nouveau trendy Cuban party scene has erupted, giving you a glimpse of a possible future Havana.

Held at different locales, this is the place to be if you want to be seen by and mix with the Cuban cool set. There is also a blooming alternative scene where brilliant Cuban musicians improvise to a very local beat that raids everyone ones’ feet onto the dance floor.
