Havana Salsa Festival & Cultural Cuba Tour 2025

Cuban Salsa, Timba & Son Music / VIP Cuba Tour featuring the Havana Salsa Fest
February 19th – 24th, 2025


Our VIP Havana Salsa Festival Tour is probably one of the best options for salsa lovers who want to experience this music in Cuba, its home country. Although the Festival showcases different types of traditional Cuban music, Salsa is the specialty, better known on the Island as “son” or “timba” – one of the most modern and popular variants of Cuban son. 

The Festival combines the most relevant music orchestras from all over Cuba, including famous bands. For the 2023 edition, the Havana Salsa Festival has announced the following line-up, specifically picked by the audience through online vote: Alexander Abreu y Havana D´Primera, Pupy y los que Son Son, Adalberto Alvarez y Su Son, Elito Revé y su Charangón, Enrique Alvarez y su Charanga Latina, Lazarito Valdez y Bamboleo,  Maikel Blanco y su Salsa Mayor, Manolito Simonet y su Trabuco, Alain Pérez, Isaac Delgado, El Niño y la Verdad, and Los Van Van orchestra.

You will be able to experience the Festival and more through our included VIP passesEvery night will be full of music around the magic city of Havana, including the festival concerts and a premium music schedule outside this event. As a team of musicians and musicologists working within the Cuban music scene for years, we will curate unique experiences within the Cuban musical realm. 

Our VIP Havana Salsa Fest Tour allows you to have other cultural experiences, including dance lessons, walking tours, and excellent Cuban food. The food on our tour is just as good as the music. We will eat at some of the top-rated restaurants around Havana. We include multiple meals at 5-Star Paladares such as El Del Frente, Atelier, El Cocinero and more.
