Cuba Itinerary

Cuba

Day 1 – UK to Havana

Today you’ll depart on your scheduled flight to Havana. You can get to know your fellow travellers over a drink this evening at your hotel in Cuba’s vibrant capital.

Meals included: D

Day 2 – Havana

Havana is the largest city in the Caribbean, and on today’s tour we’re going to see as much of it as we can. As you watch well-preserved American Chevrolets and Cadillacs rolling through streets lined by fading colonial buildings, it’s like stepping back in time! Other sightseeing highlights include La Habana Vieja, or Old Havana, where we’ll see the Plaza de Armas, the old Presidential Palace and Cathedral Square.

Meals included: B,L,D

Day 3 – Vinales Valley

A day in the great outdoors beckons today with a visit to the beautiful Vinales Valley with an included lunch. Surrounded by mountains and rocky outcrops that rise up to 300 metres, the fertile soil here produces crops including tobacco, which makes the famous Cuban cigars. Keep a lookout for a great number of bird species, including hummingbirds and mockingbirds, and when we head to lovely Pinar del Rio, look for the rare palm, microcycas calocoma. This ancient species has been growing on Earth unchanged since the Jurassic Period and this is the only area where it can be seen.

Meals included: B,L,D

Day 4 – Vinales Valley to Cienfuegos

Our journey by road today takes us to the port of Cienfuegos, set around a beautiful natural bay and boasting a UNESCO-listed historic centre. The migrants from Louisiana who settled here in the 19th century brought with them an elegant French style, which you’ll note on a guided tour.
Cuba’s oldest botanical gardens are also located here and on our visit there’s so much to discover. Amongst more than 2,000 catalogued species of plants and flowers, there are bamboo plantations and a cacti section, where 200 different types are on display.

Meals included: B,D

Day 5 – Cienfuegos at Leisure

If you want to spend the day relaxing, you can do just that. However, if you’d like to learn more about Cuba’s history, we offer a fascinating optional excursion to Santa Clara. Located between the island’s north and south coasts, this was a strategic site during the War of Independence and played a pivotal role in the Cuban Revolution. In the city we’ll see Che Guevara’s Mausoleum, where his remains lie along with 29 other guerrillas who died with him in Bolivia in 1967, and the Plaza de la Revolution.

Meals included: B,D

Day 6 – Cienfuegos – Camaguey

A journey by road today takes us through rural Cuba, so take in scenes of traditional villages and farming communities as we go. We’re heading to Camaguey, but first we’ll stop in the city of Ciego de Avila, where you can enjoy lunch if you wish.
A sightseeing tour will take us through a maze of streets in Camaguey’s UNESCO-listed centre, which is home to hidden plazas, Baroque churches and colourful buildings. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.

Meals included: B,D
