Cuba’s most soulful region is unveiled at this comprehensive tour where you’ll get to see the essence of the so-called ‘tierra caliente’ (hot land). The First Cities Tour covers the easternmost part of the island, including overnights at the whimsically fascinating Santiago de Cuba, laid-back Baracoa, and nature-filled Holguín. This is a tour for the immersive traveler who wants to enjoy the freedom of discovering places on their own but without the hassle of booking transfers, accommodations and guided orientation throughout. Start packing your bags today and head to Cuba’s most off-the-beaten-path region – creole food, warm people and verdant hills are just the beginning of a memorable trip.
