The Best of Cuba

From intriguing past to enchanting present, enjoy Cuba’s history, highlights, culture and cocktails as we tour the capital, coastal towns, and timeless landscapes staying in Cuban 5-star hotels

The largest of the Caribbean islands, Cuba is in a league of its own. Famed for cigars and salsa dancing, sugarcane rum and Spanish colonial towns, its history and landscapes are littered with legends of the Revolution, and liberally splashed with the colourful blend of conquistador and Afro-Cuban culture.

It begins in the capital, Havana, where Hemingway’s old haunts are now a heady mix of 1950s cars and faded grandeur, seafront strolls on the Malecon, people-watching pavement tables, live music cafés, and inexhaustible energy. Stay in UNESCO listed Trinidad, with a soft-tempo ambience and the air of a living museum, where time seems to have stood still in the mid-1800s; before crossing the causeway to castaway Cayo Santa Maria, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with flawless beaches and fantastic snorkelling grounds.

Notes:

On occasion, the rum factory (Day 3) and cigar factory (Day 2) may be replaced with an alternative visit due to closure at short notice.

Travelling in Cuba is a unique experience, however, tourism is still under state control and on occasion hotels of a similar standard to those listed in the itinerary may be used. Advance notification of this is not always possible.

Meals included are in a mix of local restaurants on the tour and some hotels where food can be quite basic, consisting of rice, beans, pork, chicken and fish, although international cuisine is available in the hotels on the tour.

All vehicles are air-conditioned and the highways are reasonable, whereas minor roads can be in poor repair.
