Cuban Rhythms

Havana

Day 1 Havana Additional Notes It is important to note that Cuba tends to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and infrastructure are generally old and may not have been maintained to the highest standard. Elevators, internet and A/C often break down, things happen very slowly and water pressure and hot water can be minimal. Cuba is an amazing place to visit but to fully enjoy and relax, western expectations should be left at home and your sense of adventure should be your guide.

Vintage Cuba

Cuba

Day 1: HavanaKick off in Cuba’s gloriously old-school capital. Dodge ’50s Cadillacs as you stroll the Melancon, swing your hips in a low-key rum shack and smile at every local you pass. Random facts about Cuba: one in four cars on the road is a Russian Lada, there are no poisonous snakes, sex-change operations are free and legal. Practical stuff: there are two types of currency here; you'll use convertibles (CUC), while the locals use pesos (CUP). Hola, Havana!Meals IncludedBreakfastlunchdinnerDay 2: Santa ClaraHead to the historic city of Santa Clara and hit up the Revolutionary Plaza. Stand in the shadow of Che Guevara (the monument). It would be nice to commemorate this event with a souvenir of some sort – if only you could find a t-shirt, poster, keyring, book, scarf or pet rock with Che Guevara's face on it.Meals IncludedBreakfastlunchdinnerDay 3-4: TrinidadTouch down in Trinidad. This city is everything you imagine Cuba to be – horses trot down cobblestone streets, old men strum guitars on doorsteps and stretches of white sand are ripe for exploring. Climb the bell tower of Central Museo Nacional de la Lucha Contra Bandidos for epic city views or sip on a canchanchara (lemon juice, honey and Santero Cuban rum served in a glazed ceramic pot). It’s a hard knock life.Meals IncludedBreakfastlunchdinnerDay 5-7: VinalesAside from being crazy good-looking and therefore a very pleasant place to spend a few days, Vinales is also known for cheeky porches, tobacco plants and mojitos made with honey. Practice blowing smoke rings from your balcony seat overlooking the giant bubbles of limestone that cover the landscape. Or go for a hike, that’s probably better for you.Meals IncludedBreakfastlunchdinnerDay 8-9: HavanaGuess who’s back? Havana’s back. Toast the end of your trip with a mojito and one last salsa lesson at Casa de la Musica, and then bid farewell to the enigmatic city streets.Meals IncludedBreakfastlunchdinner

World famous for a reason

Cuba is the largest Caribbean island and Havana delights with faded architecture, kicking nightlife and the ever-photogenic classic cars. There are hundreds of dive spots in Cuba and its unspoilt coral and excellent underwater visibility draw visitors from across the globe. Diving with stingrays is a highlight in the Cayman Islands and Barbados is still the isle of rum. The Bahamas paint the natural appeal of the Caribbean in (not so small) miniature. No one chills out quite like a Jamaican.
