Choose this tour because…

This tour starts in Havana, the capital of Cuba, which is rightly famous for its exuberant lifestyle and excellent atmosphere, well-preserved colonial buildings, colourful American cars and pulsating salsa rhythms that never fail to enchant. It will give you the chance to experience the relaxed, easy-going pace of Cuban life, which adds a very special ambience to the city. And to cap it all off, you will have a few days to kick back, relax and enjoy the beach paradise of Varadero, with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear water.

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.

Day 2: Tour of Havana

The first part of the day is devoted to a tour of Havana, taking in sights including the historical part of the city, which features on the UNESCO list of sites worthy of preservation. Wherever you go in Havana, you will come across evidence of the Spanish cultural heritage and architecture dating back to the colonial years. You will ride through the city in a horse-drawn carriage, accompanied by an English-speaking guide. When you reach the harbour area in Havana, look out for the white, marble-clad parliament building called ‘the Capitol’. It is an almost exact copy of the Capitol in Washington D.C. Other sights to enjoy here include the green central park, Prado Promenade and the Revolution Museum (housed in what was formerly the presidential palace). The tour ends with a walk through the charming streets of the old quarter in Havana, taking in the beautiful squares, historical buildings, and sculptures and monuments from modern and olden times.

The tour is an excellent way to experience the contrast between newly renovated and finely maintained streets and buildings, and more run-down, dilapidated areas that makes Havana unique. Highlights of the tour include a visit to the Plaza de las Armas, the oldest square in the city and site of the city museum and the governor’s palace. Another treat is the Plaza de San Francisco Asis, with its magnificent church. The rest of the day and the evening are yours to do with as you wish.

Day 3: Havana
Day 4: Havana – Varadero

You will be collected from the hotel and then driven by bus to Varadero. It is a drive of around 140 km, which takes a couple of hours. Varadero is the undisputed holiday paradise on Cuba. It is actually a 20 km tongue of land blessed with white sandy beaches and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Days 5-10: Relaxation at the holiday paradise

The days here are yours to do with as you wish. The all-inclusive hotel is located right next to the beach, so you have every opportunity to relax, spend time on the beach, take part in a variety of sports and water sports (some of which cost extra) or visit the town of Varadero, which has a small number of shops and market stalls.

Day 11: Start of the trip home

Bid farewell to Cuba and begin the trip back to the UK. You will be collected from your hotel and driven out to the airport to start your trip home. You will fly to the UK with connecting flights along the way.

Day 12: Return trip

Return flight to the UK.
