Wander the squares of Old Havana and enjoy a cocktail outside the iconic Hotel Nacional. Journey west to Vinales and watch how the world’s finest cigars are produced. Sip the best coffee in Cuba in the coffee region of Las Terrazas. In the south, visit the museum re-counting Cuba’s victory at the Bay of Pigs. Head into the lush mountains of Sierra del Escambray and encounter waterfalls and birdlife. In Trinidad, meander through the cobbled streets of Cuba’s most atmospheric town. Take a trip to the once-flourishing Sugar Valley and spend a day snorkelling in the clear waters of Playa Ancon. Finally, visit Santa Clara, where the South American icon, Ché Guevara, was reburied. Staying in delightful casas for most of your trip, you will experience the warmth of real Cuban life.
