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 4-7: 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.

Hotel Telégrafo

A historic and iconic hotel set in the heart of Havana, Hotel Telegrafo is one of Havana premium accommodation options. The hotel was first founded in 1860 and moved to its enviable position, right by the Capital Building and National Theatre, in 1888. Though recently modernised, traces of its colonial heritage remain including the original walls and a colourful mosaic. The hotel boasts 63 comfortable guestrooms, many of which enjoy fabulous views over the city, a restaurant, two cafes and a popular bar.

Casa Osmar y Alberto

Easily spotted thanks to its bright-pink exterior, Osmar y Alberto is one of Trinidad’s largest and finest casas particulares. Its simple, comfortable rooms are dotted around a pretty courtyard full of greenery and woven hammocks for relaxing. The location is fantastic, with the main square just a short-walk away, though the excellent on-site restaurant and bar make a night-in a tempting option. The friendly owners can even organise private salsa dance lessons to be enjoyed on the grounds, best enjoyed before a round of Alberto’s cocktails!

Madero B&B

An oasis of calm in bustling Old Havana, Madero B and B is a luxury boutique property with staff that can’t seem to help but go the extra mile. The grand neoclassical building, featuring staggeringly-high ceilings and traditional Cuban tiled floors, was originally built in 1929 and lovingly restored by it owners in 2016 after a period of disrepair. It now plays host to six spacious and beautifully-furnished rooms, well equipped with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay along with colourful artwork and stylish extras. The highly-coveted junior suite boasts its own balcony overlooking the street’s eclectic architecture and vibrant going-ons. Guests can enjoy their breakfast on the private rooftop terrace, with views of the colonial quarter and Havana harbour. Many of the city’s top attractions sit just a stone’s-throw away.
