ATLANTA, GA --(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - Vacation Express offers convenient instant-booking and extensive hotel options across the beautiful country of Cuba to travelers eligible for travel by the US government through their website CUBA.VACATIONEXPRESS.com. With nearly 50 hotels to choose from in six cities throughout the island, it's no wonder that Vacation Express' selection is among the most robust for hotel-only bookings!

Vacation Express has been booking hotel-only options in Cuba since December 2015, and there is such a high-demand for this option that this year has seen more companies open inventory at Cuban hotels. "Since the US government began opening up options for US travelers, demand has greatly increased and we are proud to have been one of the first US companies to offer a hotel-only booking option," said Kevin Hernandez, vice president of Vacation Express.

Hotel properties are available for booking now in Varadero, Santiago de Cuba, Cayo Coco, Holguin, Cayo Santa Maria and the much sought after capital of Cuba, Havana. Today, daily charter flights already serve several airports in Cuba. Commercial flights are scheduled to begin flying new routes to Cuba in the near future, and the timing couldn't be more perfect.

  • Havana: As capital of Cuba, Havana is a much sought after destination and Vacation Express is proud to offer five hotels in the bustling historic city. Havana is serviced by Jose Marti International Airport.
  • Varadero: Choose from a selection of 19 hotels in the city which has one of the island's most popular coastlines and features a wide array of artist markets. Varadero will be serviced by the Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport.
  • Santiago de Cuba: In the home of two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and where the Cuban Revolution first began, Vacation Express offers accommodations at the Melia Santiago de Cuba. Visitors to the city will be serviced by the Antonio Maceo International Airport.
