Overview & Highlights

This comprehensive  highlights tour goes a step further than most.  Visit Havana, the Viñales valley, forested Las Terrazas and the best historic cities: Cienfuegos, Santa Clara and Trinidad. Wind down on a Caribbean beach.

  • Half day guided walking tour of Old Havana
  • Dinner at a family home (paladar)
  • Half day guided walking tour of Viñales Valley
  • Half day guided walking tour of Cienfuegos
  • Full day excursion, exploring Trinidad and visiting the Sugar Mill Valley
  • Half day city tour of Santa Clara with visit to Che Guevara Mausoleum

This holiday includes the main highlights of Cuba but you’ll dig deeper, with walks and private excursions to help you to understand how this country really ticks. Cuba is unique and inspiring; a socialist stronghold, with a rebellious history, colonial splendour in many of the towns, spectacular countryside and a Caribbean heart. Its vibrancy and friendly people will make a lasting impression. 

The trip begins in Havana, Cuba's inimitable capital, with its faded grandeur and pulsating rhythms. Head west to stroll around Viñales, a fertile valley with limestone mountains in the tobacco-growing region.  After a visit to forested Las Terrazas, an eco-experiment that really works, you’ll visit three of the country’s contrasting cities, Cienfuegos, colonial Trinidad and Santa Clara, each with a story to tell. There’s time to absorb it all on a sugar-white beach on one of the loveliest Caribbean cays, Santa María.
