The travel restrictions for Americans in Cuba have not been completely lifted, but they are being eased — in fact luxury yachts Highlander and Axioma are now available to charter in Cuba for the first time. A vacation to Havana is like stepping back in time, but visiting by superyacht means you can enjoy all the luxuries of life on board that can’t be found on land.

What to do and see: An afternoon exploring Earnest Hemingway’s former home should be high on the priority list, second only to a tour of the Havana Club rum factory and museum. Old Havana is home to a number of historical hotspots, including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Plaza de Armas, Plaza Vieja, Plaza San Francisco de Asis and Plaza de la Catedral.
