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.

Days 4 - 6: Viñales

Transfer Havana to Viñales

Journey 111-miles, leaving the bustle of Havana for the laidback living of picturesque Viñales.

Discover Cuba's Most Beautiful Landscape: Viñales

The Viñales Valley, which exudes a beauty that you will remember forever, is the perfect antidote to the intensity of Havana. Edged by the Sierra de los Organos, it is spotted with mogotes – tree covered limestone knolls rising dramatically out of the green landscape, where weather-beaten farmers in spurs and straw hats work the blood red earth. These rocks have been molded by underground rivers, which you can see in many caves. You’ll need to get out into that quiet humid green landscape, dotted with thatched huts for tobacco drying, and explore it on foot, bike, or horse. Then retreat to the picturesque village of Viñales to rock on the porch of your casa particular and enjoy a home-cooked Cuban meal.

Days 6 - 8: Trinidad

Transfer Viñales to Trinidad

Your transfer will pick you up and take you to the city of Trinidad. It's a long journey, but filled 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 - Cayo Santa María

Transfer Trinidad to Cayo Santa María

After all the excitement of Havana, Viñales, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad, it is time to relax by the beach in Cayo Santa Maria. Your transfer will take you from Trinidad to your resort in this paradise key. The causeway that crosses the sea to the islet is a real highlight!

Discover a Paradise Island: Cayo Santa María

Surrounded by aquamarine waters bordering white, powder-soft sands, Cayo Santa María is a tropical haven, an island of true natural beauty, and the largest of the Villa Clara Key islands that make up the archipelago Jardines del Rey. Connected by a 48km causeway to the town of Caibarien, Cayo Santa Maria is one of the most beautiful beach destinations in the Caribbean.

Days 11 - 12: Havana

Transfer Cayo Santa María to Havana

You'll travel back to Havana to spend your last night in the city. Returning to Havana the day before your flight home makes the departure process much simpler and gives you another chance to experience the nightlife of this amazing city.

Say Goodbye to Havana

Rest up before your journey back home or take the opportunity to experience a few more delicious mojitos and fabulous live music performances,

Transfer to Havana Airport

You will be collected from your accommodation 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.
