Day 2

Guided vintage car tour of Old Havana.
 

Soak up the atmosphere from the seat of a vintage car as you are driven around one of the world’s most vibrant capitals and along the famous malecón (seafront promenade), including highlights such as the revolutionary square famed for  being the platform for Fidel’s lengthy speeches.  Before you climb into the back seat of your polished classic car you’ll stroll along the pedestrian cobbles of La Habana Vieja, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Music seems to seep out of every doorway in the pastel-hued mansions and the more modest homes of narrow, shaded alleys of the busy centre. The subsequent restoration of this part of town has transformed it into what is arguably Latin America's finest colonial quarter, standing in marked contrast to the potholed streets and crumbling façades around it.

Day 4

Transfer by car to UNESCO World Heritage Site Trinidad, in southern Cuba.
 
Trinidad's colonial streets
Transfer by car to Trinidad, a beautifully preserved colonial town with numerous eateries and live music venues set in some of Cuba’s loveliest scenery. Trinidad was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Its popularity has not affected its colonial charm and unhurried atmosphere. Low-rise, brightly painted houses with vast shutters open out onto cobbled streets, palm trees dot the main plaza and evening entertainment continues into the early hours with dancing and music each night.

Day 5

Guided colonial city tour.
 
trinidad

Guided tour through Trinidad's cobbled streets and elegantly crumbling town houses which lead to vibrant plazas frequently filled with music and salsa dancing. As you visit the Plaza Mayor and Museo Romántico, you'll be introduced to the history of the city which seems barely touched by the modern world. Stop at an authentic Cuban bar, La Canchánchara to sample a traditional cocktail, before heading off to a ceramics workshop, La Casa del Alfarero.

escambray mountains

At leisure during the day. You might visit the nearby crisp white beach or head off into the Topes de Collantes National Park in the Escambray mountains behind the city, where there are cool forests, lakes, waterfalls and a number of hiking trails.

In the evening there’s a unique guided excursion taking you around the bustling streets of colonial Trinidad by night. You'll head out at around 9pm, accompanied by a knowledgeable and friendly Trinidadian resident for an evening filled with music, dance and authentic Cuban bars. Your drinks and entry costs are payable locally.

Day 7

Land transfer to first class resort hotel on Cayo Santa María.
 

Transfer by road to Cayo Santa María. A string of small tropical cays (which form part of the Jardins del Rey archipelago) are connected to the town of Caibarién on the mainland by a 48km causeway. This island (2 x 13km) is blessed with gorgeous powdery white sand beaches, mangroves and calm turquoise waters, ideal for snorkelling and diving. It is served solely by a small cluster of resort hotels; there is no Cuban village.
