Explore The Valley of Vinales
During your tour through the valley you’ll stop at the ‘Indian Cave’, discovered in 1920, where you can take a walk and then a motorboat trip through this amazing subterranean world. The well preserved colonial village of Vinales is also in the valley as is a huge mural painted on the side of a mountain by Cuban artist Leovigildo Gonzalez, a pupil of Mexican muralist Diego Rivera.
The next stop will be the ‘Palenque de los Cimarrones’, a secret hideaway used by runaway slaves who were fleeing their abusive masters back in colonial times. A highlight of the trip will be a visit to a tobacco curing barn where the magic of Cuban tobacco production takes place – you’ll receive a full explanation of the process and can even smoke a Cuban cigar if you wish!

Discover The Colonial Town of Trinidad
It’s not so much the history, the scenery or the vast dramatic landscape that makes Trinidad the perfect addition to your multi-centre holiday in Cuba - it's a combination of them all. For most people the highlight of this Multi-Centre Holiday, Trinidad is one of the oldest and best preserved Spanish colonial settlement towns in Cuba, but its close proximity to the mountains and the beach, also makes it one of the most diverse.
Trinidad: a perfect combination of nature, beach,
and colonial heritage.
