11 Day Travel Itinerary

Days 1-5: Havana

Fly to Cuba

Transfer to Havana

You will be picked up from the the airport and taken to your accommodation in a modern, air-conditioned car. Sit back, relax and enjoy your first glimpses of this spectacular city!

Discover Cuba's Lively Capital: Havana

Few cities in the Americas or the Caribbean boast the life and soul of the sultry showgirl that is Havana. To know Havana is love her – her buzzing street corners, where the bored and the busy-with-gossip congregate; her gorgeous colonial cityscape, her virtuoso musicians and dancers; her antiquated classic cars and her socialist slogans. Havana is at its busiest with tourism and private enterprise since 1959, with a new restaurant, shop, art project or hip private villa opening seemingly every week, regardless of announcements emanating out of the States. There’s never been a better time to join the party.

Day 3: Day Excursion to Viñales

Explore the Valley of Viñales

This full-day private tour provides a fascinating insight into life in rural Cuba. Following an 8:00 AM pick up, your English-speaking guide will commence the 111-mile journey to UNESCO World Heritage-listed Valle de Viñales. You will stop along the way at Soroa, admiring its waterfalls and famed orchid garden, and at a breathtaking viewpoint overlooking the valley of Viñales. Exuding verdant lushness and laidback charm, Viñales is the perfect antidote to the intensity of Havana. You will have the opportunity to explore its unusual limestone landscape and experience its rich tobacco heritage.

Days 5-8: Trinidad

Transfer Havana to Trinidad

This morning your transfer will pick you up and take you to Cuba's best preserved colonial town: Trinidad. It's a reasonably-long journey but with lots of interesting stops along the way.

Discover Cuba's Colonial Gem: Trinidad

Trinidad is simply the most handsome town in Cuba, in one of the most idyllic provinces, Sancti Spiritus. Founded by Diego Velázquez in 1514, the giant village is wedged between the towering Escambray range and the shimmering coast. Trinidad grew wealthy on sugar in the 18th century, thus its museum-piece architecture dates mainly from this era. Walk a few streets and the village peters out into red earth, drooping palms and mountains. Drive five miles and you reach a perfect stretch of beach, Peninsula Ancon. At night, things come alive at the Casa de la Musica with its peerless, romantic setting at the hiatus of a grand stone stairwell.

Days 8-11: Varadero

Transfer Trinidad to Varadero

After all the excitement of Havana, Viñales, and Trinidad, it is time to relax by the beach in Varadero. Your transfer will take you from Trinidad to your resort in Varadero.

Discover Cuba's Most Popular Beach: Varadero

Boasting crystal-clear waters and powdery soft sands, Varadero is the perfect spot to end your Cuban adventure. Its seemingly-never-ending beach is as vibrant underwater as it is above land making it a popular snorkelling and watersports spot. Spend your days basking in the sun at an all-inclusive beach-front resort or venture into town and discover the array of tourist-friendly activities and attractions.

Transfer Varadero to Havana Airport

You will be collected from your resort and taken back to Havana International Airport. You will arrive with enough time to check in your flight at one of the airline desks, clear immigration, and enjoy some snacks at the airport lounge before boarding your flight back to the UK.
