Chateau Blanc Passover Program 2023 in Cuba
NOTE: We will unfortunately be postponing our Pesach program for 2023, but will remain open for visitors during other times of the year under Parve conditions with plans to offer meat options in the coming months. We are looking forward to fully reimplmenting the Pesach program in 2023.
Please contact us as info@chateau-cuba with any questions you may have. We look forward to serving you.
This year, try something new and different for Pesach. For the first time ever, we are proud to announce a first-of-its-kind Passover Program – Passover in Cuba!
We invite you to come explore this Caribbean jewel with a rich Jewish history. Unlike the other islands in the region, you won’t be relegated to a resort only experience. In addition to fine dining, in house entertainment and the comforts of home, we invite you to explore Havana, a world class city that boasts fine art and architecture, museums and galleries, and a vibrant and safe nightlife. But it doesn’t end there. Take a day trip out to Viñales, where you can explore tobacco country and learn all about how our world famous Habanos are made. And of course, what trip would be complete without some down time at the beach? Sun, sand and surf await you in Varadero, home to Cuba’s famous sugar sand beaches where you can spend the day seaside with a mojito and enjoy the tropical breeze.
