Day 1 Havana

Welcome to the sultry capital of Cuba. The best way to see Havana's colonial buildings, elegant plazas, vintage cars and cigar-smoking musicians is by foot. Visit the Plaza de la Revolucion and pass giant monuments of the legendary Che Guevara and Jose Marti. The striking baroque facade of the Catedral de San Cristobal de la Habana is a must-see.

Days 2-3 Soroa/Vinales

Tour the Cuban orchid gardens of Soroa en route to Vinales. One of Cuba's most attractive areas, the fertile valleys and distinctive limestone 'pincushion' hills surrounding Vinales are well worth exploring on a walking tour. Get into the groove with an introductory group salsa lesson and be welcomed on a homestay with a friendly local family.

Days 4-5 Trinidad

Take time to explore Trinidad's Spanish-style churches then head to Playa Ancon, a white, sandy beach where many hours slip lazily by. Alternatively, why not snorkel over Cuba's colourful underwater world or hire a bike for a relaxing pedal around town? Enjoy an Afro-Cuban folklore dance and music show then practise newly learned salsa moves at one of Trinidad's famous music venues.

Day 6 Cienfuegos

Journey to the port city Cubans call La Perla del Sur ('The Pearl of the South'). Stop by the Palacio del Valle, the architectural pride of Cienfuegos. For a local pick-me-up why not try a Cuban coffee? It's served strong, black and super sweet.

Days 7-8 Havana

Stop in at Santa Clara to visit the Mausoleo Che Guevara and learn about the legend and life of this famous revolutionary. Back in Havana, there is time for a final night of revelry. Anyone for some salsa?
