Renowned for its vibrant Latin culture, soulful music, fine rums and cigars and its dramatic revolutionary history, Cuba is a remarkably beautiful country. Follow the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway and Che Guevara and explore the enchanting capital, Havana, taking in landmarks such as the Capitolio – the seat of the government before the Cuban Revolution – the main square, Plaza de Armas and the 18th century Cathedral, or simply enjoy a relaxing stroll along the Malecon, the famous seafront promenade and watch the vintage tail-finned Oldsmobiles, DeSotos and Studebakers cruising by. Further afield, the picturesque Viñales Valley, the ‘Pearl of the South,’ Cienfuegos, and the colonial cities of Trinidad and Sancti Spiritus are all rewarding destinations.
Cuba is a land of contrasts, pulsing with the energy of its Spanish and Afro-Caribbean roots, yet peppered with reminders of its revolutionary past and Communist present. Take in classic Cadillacs, the faded grandeur of colonial-era buildings and the ever-present sounds of salsa as you tour Havana, explore the country’s revolutionary past in Santa Clara, experience rural Vinales and make your way to Caribbean shores in Cienfuegos, all on our tour of this unique and fascinating island.
