Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Havana and transfer to your hotel.
Spend the morning with your guide on a walking tour of Old Havana, calling in at the cathedral, the Plaza de Armas and the Plaza Vieja. Later on, leave the city for the dramatic landscape of the Pinar del Rio. Stop off to view the orchids in Soroa on your way to the mountain village of Vinales. Explore the gorgeous mountain scenery, perhaps hiking to a refreshing waterfall, touring the countryside by bicycle or wandering the botanical gardens (all optional, extra cost).
Drive on to the colonial city of Trinidad, a fantastically well-preserved settlement that feels like you’ve stepped back in time to the mid-19th century. A world heritage site, the city has oodles of old buildings and squares to admire, with some pretty churches and surrounding sugar plantations. Head down to the soft sands of Playa Ancon for a spot of snorkelling or horse riding (optional, extra cost) or take a hike along the trails in the Sierra del Escambray Mountains. Stay overnight with a local family, for a real taste of traditional Cuban life.
Arrive in Cienfuegos and visit the architectural wonder of the Palacio de Valle, a rather ornate palace with a mix of roman, Venetian and gothic styles constructed in 1917. Cienfuegos is known as the Pearl of the South by the proud locals, and as a French-founded city, has a distinctive Gallic feel along its wide, leafy boulevards. Head down to the Pueblo Nuevo, the historic city centre, and the Punta Gorda, the peninsula, which is lined with homes built in the 1950s.
Call in at the Che Guevara Mausoleum on your way back to Havana. Here you can learn about his life and view some of his possessions and photos. Back in Havana, join the locals for a spot of rum then dance to the steamy Latin beats with your new-found salsa moves. The next morning you have free time for some final souvenir shopping or sightseeing before you head home – perhaps visit the Museo de la Revolución or the open-air handicraft market.
Depart Havana and return to the UK.
