Choose this tour because…

When you mention Cuba, people’s thoughts inevitably turn to rum, cigars and revolution. But there is much, much more to Cuba than that. This trip introduces you to the country’s absolute highlights, its thriving culture, the hospitality of its people, and the calm, relaxing pace of everyday life on the island. You will spend three nights in Havana, the capital city famous for its pulsating salsa rhythms, classic American cars and finely preserved buildings dating back to the Spanish colonial era. You will experience the lush countryside when you visit the fertile valley at Viñales, which is well-known for growing some of the best tobacco plants in the world – using old-fashioned work methods. The trip finishes in the colonial gem of Trinidad, close to the magnificent, white sandy beaches.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Departure from the UK

Departure day, where you will fly to Havana with connecting flights along the way. In Havana, you will be met by a driver who will take you to your hotel.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares

Day 2: Tour of Havana

Today is devoted to a tour of the historical part of Havana, which is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Wherever you go in Havana, you will come across evidence of the city’s Spanish cultural heritage and architecture dating back to the colonial era. We stroll through the charming old streets of Havana, passing beautiful squares, historic buildings and a string of sculptures and monuments from modern and older periods. We experience the contrast between newly renovated and finely maintained streets and buildings, and the more run-down, dilapidated areas that make Havana unique.

Highlights of the tour include a visit to the Plaza de Armas, the oldest square in the city and site of the city museum and the governor’s palace. We also see Plaza de San Francisco Asis with its beautiful church, Plaza Vieja with its magnificent old colonial buildings and Plaza de la Catedral with the handsome cathedral. The late afternoon and evening are yours to do with as you wish.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares

Day 3: Havana

No excursions scheduled. This means that you have all day to explore the delights of Havana on your own.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares

However, there are several Havana tours to choose from:

Day 4: Havana – Viñales Valley

Today you leave Havana behind and head off towards the delightful Viñales valley, a journey on the VIAZUL bus of around 3 hours. The landscape is predominantly made up of fertile valleys covered in banana palms and mango trees, tobacco fields and the impressive limestone mountains known locally as “mogotes”. The farmers here still grow crops and tobacco in the old-fashioned way, with the aid of ox-drawn carts.

The Viñales region is famous for the quality of its tobacco plants; it supplies the leaves that are subsequently rolled in the cigar factories of Havana to make world-famous brands such as Cohiba and Montecristo. The trip includes a visit to a cigar factory where you can see the entire process.

We will also visit the most spectacular stalactite caves in Cuba, which used to be home to local indigenous tribes. We sail through the caves along the miles and miles of river that flow through this breathtaking natural phenomenon.

Overnight stay: Hotel Los Jazmines

Days 5-6: Viñales Valley

There are no excursions planned, so the days are yours to do with as you wish. You can explore the beautiful Viñales area on your own or take advantage of one of the following excursions.

Overnight stay: Hotel Los Jazmines

There are a number of trips that can be purchased:

Day 7: Viñales Valley – Trinidad

You will be collected early the next morning and driven to the bus station, where the bus to Trinidad awaits. En route, we are sure to see a number of “imaginatively constructed” vehicles, and it is not unlikely that we will come across an ox cart or a horse and carriage driving along the road.

You will reach Trinidad late in the afternoon. This charming town features on the UNESCO World Heritage List, largely on account of its well-preserved buildings that date back to colonial times.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares

Day 8: Trinidad

The day is devoted to a tour of the town, including a visit to the picturesque Plaza Mayor (Grand Square). There are a number of museums around the square, and we will visit the Museo Romantica, which is known for its collections of jewels, porcelain, paintings and sculptures that previously belonged to the Spanish nobles. The square is also the site of the cathedral: Iglesia Parroquial de la Santisima Trinidad, one of the biggest churches on Cuba. It is then time to head for La Canchanra bar for a refreshing drink. To round off the tour, we call in at an arts and crafts shop, visit Cantero palace, and spend some time taking a closer look at the charming, pastel-coloured houses.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares

Day 9: Trinidad

The day is yours to do with as you wish. You can spend it in Trinidad, for example, take advantage of one of the following excursions or take a taxi to Ancón, one of the very finest sandy beaches on Cuba, which is located approx. 10 km from Trinidad.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares

There are a number of trips that can be purchased:

Day 10: Trinidad - Havana

It is now time to head back to Havana. After we arrive, the rest of the afternoon is yours to do with as you wish. For example, it might be an idea to visit one of the numerous museums in the capital, such as the Revolution Museum, which charts the history of Fidel Castro and his path to power. Alternatively, you could take a trip to El Malecon beach promenade to walk along the sea shore, experience everyday life in Cuba, admire all the stylish old American cars, or relax on one of the squares in the old part of town.

Overnight stay: Casa Particulares
