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.

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.

Day 7: Viñales dalen – 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 Hotel Brisas Trinidad del Mar

Day 8: Trinidad

Join us on a guided city tour of Trinidad’s beautiful old quarter. Get your good walking shoes on, as Trinidad’s charming topped cobblestone streets are very uneven.

You will visit locations including the picturesque square, Plaza Mayor and the city’s cathedral, “Iglesia Parroquial de la Santisima Trinidad”, one of the biggest churches in Cuba. Your guide will tell you about the city’s exciting history and architecture on the way. The tour ends with a drink at one of the city’s cozy bars.

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.
