Day 1 Havana

Get acquainted with Cuba's capital city, Havana. Walk through the crumbling splendour of World Heritage-listed Habana Vieja (Old Havana), or head to the Malecon to watch waves crash dramatically against the seawall. Alternatively, find a cafe, kick back with a Cuba Libre and soak up the procession of classic cars, the whiff of fragrant cigars and the constant sound of salsa, all melding effortlessly in this incredibly unique city.

Days 2-3 Las Terrazas

Journey to Las Terrazas, stopping en route at the Finca de Plantas Medicinales to learn all about local herbs and their medicinal properties. At Las Terrazas, hike through lush forest, stumble upon picturesque waterfalls and keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of some of the native birdlife. Perhaps take a canopy tour, relax in the San Juan river baths or explore the ruins of an old French coffee plantation. There are some incredible art and pottery studios in the area too.

Days 4-6 Vinales

Stop in Soroa to explore the orchid garden, or hike up a rugged mountain path to admire the sweeping view from the lookout. Continue on to the chilled-out village of Vinales, travelling through the spectacular mogotes (sheer-sided limestone hills). Take long walks overlooking sprawling Cuban tobacco fields and meet locals over a nip of the region's famous rum. For a cultural fix, check out the museum near the central plaza.
