Cuba

Overview & Highlights

This modestly priced holiday includes some overnights in homestays and plenty of free time to explore at leisure or organise your own excursions.

It doesn’t cost a fortune to experience the hospitality of the Cuban people, their extraordinary history, living culture, music and dance. We’ve devised a good-value holiday where you will explore old Havana’s evocative historic quarters, the fairyland valley landscapes of the fertile Viñales region and Trinidad’s elegant colonial streets.

Cuba’s unique Latin American beat sets it apart from all the other islands of the Caribbean. After these adventures, you’ll soak up the sun on the chalky white sand beach at the fully inclusive beach resort Memories Jibacoa. There’s plenty of time at leisure to choose optional excursions and activities when you are there, or just wander around according to your own whims. The tour uses coaches designed for tourists and the accommodation is in friendly guest houses and homestays.

Our Expert's Opinion

Our most affordable holiday to Cuba, this trip offers great value for money and the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Cuban way of life. We have kept costs down by including accommodation in casas particulares (homestays), which are an important part of the culture and provide insights into ordinary life. Additionally, we have incorporated as much flexibility as possible, allowing you the choice to book activities locally or simply relax on the beach at the fully inclusive resort Memories Jibacoa at the end of the trip.
